Rapid Washer, aka Yukon Plunger
We first saw this remarkable item at a living history museum. It really revolutionizes
clothes washing, and is a big step up from the wash board especially for larger loads.
This metal plunger with a
wooden handle agitates your washing load. It works great in a wash tub, large bucket,
bathtub, etc. A must have when your washing machine is out of commission for any
length of time, and will come in handy any time for large items in your bath tub. One
customer we sold to, finds it desirable over the laundry mat, for all her laundry needs.
The Rapid Washer is made of tin-plated steel. Please note the Rapid Washers are made on
the same machine as they were in the 1800s, and while they are made to be used, they may have
some irregularities and a small amount of rust developing is normal. We don't recommend the Rapid Washer for
use in, or near, salt water.
Columbus Washboard Company
Columbus Washboards have been made in the USA since 1895 and they are still produced
by hand in Logan, Ohio! These washboards are fully functional and can be used for hand
laundry scrubbing just like in days gone by.
They can be used in bathtubs, sinks, washtubs,
buckets or anywhere there is water. Washboards are usefull for delicate clothes, for
those who would otherwise have to use a laundry mat, at cabins or homes without electricy,
or while on a camping or hunting trip.
Today, washboards are used by Amish, campers,
soldiers, students, and many others. They work anywhere and are not dependent on an electric supply.
Columbus washboards are also used as decorative items
for laundry rooms, kitchens, etc. They are even used in making furniture and as musical
instruments. Woodcrafters have used washboards in coffee tables, cabinets, magazine racks and more.
