Wash Day 1918

    Newer Older

    As advertised in the March 30, 1918 issue of Country Gentleman magazine. I recall radio ads in later years.

      I don't remember my parents using the chips, but my father would take a full bar of some strong smelling soap and slice it into bits when they rolled the big heavy Maytag and the 2 rinsing tubs into the kitchen every Monday like clockwork.
