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.
