Wednesday Nostalgia

Perhaps today’s memory item isn’t that old but it’s still nostalgia-evoking to me. This is a “mangle” or Ironrite ironing machine. I remember my Mom sitting at the Ironrite, moving the controls with her knees, and ironing EVERYTHING……shirts and sheets, hankies and hand towels and tablecloths. She explained that it saved both time and her back.  Do you have memories of an Ironrite? Did you ever catch a finger??

    I remember it well every time I’m ironing sheets and pillow cases!
