THIS WASHBOARD represents a whole laundry in itself. It is designed for small apartments, camping trailers and other locations where economy of space is desirable. The washboard contains soap rack, wringer and a self-supporting back rest. It can be used in a tub or in a small basin.
THIS TIME SWITCH modernizes old washing machines by making them automatic. Listed on the dial is the water temperature and washing time necessary for fabrics.
CAN-OPENER FOR LIQUIDS such as juices and oils acts as a spigot. When the tubes are pushed into a can, rubber washers seal the holes. Then, as air enters one tube the liquid is poured out the other. Sealing washers make tubes air tight.
AIR CONDITIONED REFRIGERATOR keeps bread and cakes fresh for weeks at a temperature of 40 to 50 degrees. No frost forms in the compartment, and food such as bananas, cauliflower, and celery can be left uncovered.
HERE IS A BATTERY CHARGING WASHING MACHINE. In rural homes where electricity is not available, this new washing machine charges the radio battery while doing the weekly laundry. The generator is mounted on the motor platform and uses a belt drive. It does not affect the motor power.
