We live overseas and a bit "off the grid", we wash our clothes by "hand" using a laundry plunger and Lehman's glass washboard. We use the washboard almost daily and it has stood the test of time, this is not merely a decorative piece. The glass washboards are excellently made, the glass is thick and strong. We store it outside in the shade mostly and it has remained in excellent shape. The only reason I need a new one, is that the wood over all these years has literally worn away on the rubbing side and I am getting nervous that it won't hold the glass much longer. I highly recommend this for daily washing, but for those of you with more modern conveniences I would suggest that is a must have for stain removal. I will always desire one of these washboards in my laundry room, no matter where I live in the future, for cleaning really dirty socks, jeans, diapers or anything that gets heavily soiled. Thanks Lehman's for continuing to carry this product! I highly recommend it!
Very well made

I could not find a glass washboard in Canada, so I ordered this from the US. It is very well made and arrived in perfect condition. I am really pleased with the quality of the joinery.

I asked for this item and received it as kind of joke. But I found I first started to use it to remove stains along with some Fels Naptha soap. It does a fantastic job on that. Well last September 11 2017 along came hurricane Irma and we were without power for over a week. I did laundry on this every day. I was grateful I still had water and because of this I still could have clean clothes without alot of work. Thanks Lehmans folks for this wonderful item.
Lehman's Glass Washboard
May 17, 2017
I generally don't write reviews for products, but I recently discovered Lehmans' Hardware online and was really impressed with the quality of everything I bought. The washboard is extremely solid and well built, and has made an unpleasant chore easier and more manageable. I started hand washing clothes when my apartment building installed horrible washing machines that kept damaging my clothes and that cost a fortune to operate. I also have two toddlers and I need to spot treat of lot of their clothing before regular washing. This washboard is particularly good at removing dirt, such as from the bottoms and knees of the babies' pants, and it does an amazing job on ground in dirt from their white cotton socks. For tougher stains, I rub the spot with Grandma's Laundry Stain Stick first and then let the item sit a while before washing it out, and his seems to get out most stains. For the very worst stains, such as berry juice, I soak in oxygen bleach. As a result, I can get out nearly any stain now. When using alternative stain treatments, the washboard still serves as a nice platform for me to spread out the clothes for application of the treatment. I think the secret to using the washboard, besides elbow grease, is to get the clothing nice and sudsy while scrubbing.
