Washing Clothes Recipe

Never thought of a 'washer' in this light before… what a blessing! 'Washing Clothes Recipe' -- imagine having a recipe for this ! ! !

Years ago an Alabama grandmother gave the new bride the following recipe. This is an exact copy as written and found in an old scrapbook - with spelling errors and all.

WASHING CLOTHES

  • Build fire in backyard to heat kettle of rain water.
  • Set tubs so smoke won’t blow in eyes if wind is pert. Shave one hole cake of lie soap in boiling water.
  • Sort things, make 3 piles 1 pile white, 1 pile colored, 1 pile work britches and rags.
  • To make starch, stir flour in cool water to smooth, then thin down with boiling water.
  • Take white=2 0things, rub dirty spots on board, scrub hard, and boil, then rub colored don't boil just wrench and starch.
  • Take things out of kettle with broom stick handle, then wrench, and starch. Hang old rags on fence. Spread tea towels on grass.
  • Pore wrench water in flower bed.
  • Scrub porch with hot soapy water. Turn tubs upside down.
  • Go put on clean dress, smooth hair with hair combs.
  • Brew cup of tea, sit and rock a spell and count your blessings.

Paste this over your washer and dryer. Next time when you think things are bleak, read it again, kiss that washing machine and dryer, and give thanks. First thing each morning you should run and hug your washer and dryer, also your toilet --- (those two-holers used to get mighty cold!)

(For you non-southerners - wrench means rinse).

AND WE THINK WE HAVE IT ROUGH?
