You can get the non-electric old fashioned w/wringer at Lehmans (Lehmans.com) they are pricey though. BUT...they have other options that you may want to consider....some are alot more pratical from a financial viewpoint!Jagger said:I was interested in finding out if anyone has any good info on washing clothes. When we lived in the woods before we would use the boil method and hand scrub. Does anyone know of any contraptions that can be built, purchased, or salvaged. What about old wringer-washers that do not use electric. How hard are they to find and are they very expensive? What r some things to look at when deciding to purchase one?
