I had several comments about the Rapid Washer that I mentioned in my previous post. I guess what first caught my eye about this antique, yet handy tool, is that I have my great-great grandmothers hand washer. It is in beautiful condition and I could probably use it, but for the sake of preserving a treasured keep-sake, it will just be used as display. I wish I could take a picture of it, but while we are in the process of moving, it is in storage. However, I do have a picture (compliments of Lehmans) of a "modern" one.
When I checked the site (Lehmans), they call the model above the "Breathing Hand Washer", and the one pictured below a "Rapid Laundry Washer". I personally like the metal one better. If my grandmother's can withstand the test of time then hopefully so will this one.
