I liked the musical way better.  I figured  that's how you washed with them just the glass part had me a little confused.

We know you can’t get your wives to do that

Or the husbands for that matter.

 I can remember my mother washing clothes  . she would have a  tub full  of wash water another for rinse  another smaller one to dump wet clothes in to carry to the line for drying and a bag full of wooden clothepins  to keep them on the line . was an all day job. i think we got her first washing machine  about 51or 52  was an old used maytag wringer.              how did we get on washing clothes

My mother had an Easy with the 3 brass plungers that went up and down and a wringer to the rinse tubs. Can remember being in the wringer up to my elbow before she tripped it!!! Next upgrade was a triangular shaped Easy with a rinse spinner on the end. No dryer until mid 60's after we got natural gas.

Hey 6368, I grew up with that same old GE fridge ,had a small freeze box on the top right side  a shelf  for milk to the left  small draw for eggs under it then two full shelves I think and  a pair of vegetable draws on the bottom I don't remember any shelves on the inside of the door. Now for washing clothes we had an old maytag with the top wringer . needed two laundry sinks and the washer to do the laundry, Large sink for rinse ,small sink for bleaching white,and my mother used the glass wash board for her spinnaker sails. I used to help (or hinder) my mother do the laundry because the washer had a gear shift to wash ,a seperate lever to pump out the water , and a reversible wringer . Ah the 1950 were good and so was MACK back then.
