gini:
agnes we had a wringer washer until i was 14

Gini--Beat you by a long shot. I didn't graduate from the wringer washer until the 1970s. My big wahoo moment was getting the dryer in 1970 before my first baby. Because of water constraints the washer didn't follow until I was almost 31. At least I had electricity. I didn't have to hand crank like Grandma did when I was 6.

I went from full washer dryer to wringer/tub/line when I got married.  We were young and had NO money.  I wish a wringer washer on anyone with an attitude and two in diapers.

Gini--Auto washer didn't make it til 1975. That's 8 years later regardless of our age difference. We also had horrible water chemicals and every couple of months I had to use color remover on anything white. Diapers weren't the big concern but hubby's white shirts that he wore to work daily certainly were a pain. Then that dratted ironing is something I gave up gladly when he changed jobs.
