This is a smaller vintage washboard offered by the Columbus Washboard Co. Columbus Ohio. It reads; "Ideal for silks, hosiery and lingerie or handkerchiefs. Just the right size to fit a bucket, pail or lavatory, packs easily into suit case or traveling bag." On the other side it reads; "Dubl Handi, use either side according to fabric, Columbus Washboard Co. Columbus OH.

Although this Dubl Handi washboard was expressly designed for another time, a time when weary traveling salesmen would retire to some boardinghouse room with socks and underwear damp from the sweat of the hard sell. They’d reach for their Dubl Handi — “Just the Right Size to Fit a Bucket, Pail or Lavatory” — and begin scrubbing away.

The washboard was dubly handi because one side featured corrugated spirals that could free the most stubborn stains, while the other side offered a wavy rumble to address the more, uh, sensitive fabrics. That’s right, ladies: “Ideal for Silks, Hosiery and Lingerie.”

This washboard measures 18" x 8-1/2". It is made of wood and tin. The graphics are faded some, but still in acceptable condition for its age and there is some rust on the tin. A wonderful decorative piece for the laundry room.

*The vintage items I list have been previously owned and loved. They may show some wear as is typical for vintage pieces. I will try to note in the description if there are any flaws other than normal wear not shown in the photos.
