ACME Wringer

The Acme Wringer was a popular piece of domestic laundry equipment. It was a small mangle which would be positioned between two sinks. Clothes were passed through the rollers, rinsed and passed through them again to remove excess water before hanging them out to dry. This was a time consuming process which became unnecessary as electric washing machines which spun water out of the clothes became more commonplace.
