What Were They Thinking?

Pardon me if I've expressed disdain for this before, but what on earth were they thinking to work a "damp dry" indicator into all the automatic drying settings on my clothes dryer?  I mean, if I didn't know the fabric was damp, would I have put it into the dryer?  HELLO!

My Aunt Joyce used to have a wringer washer a lot like this one in her basement.  It really could have doubled as a medieval torture device. 

I suppose that I should just be glad my washer/dryer system doesn't look and function like the one in this photo.


  1. My grandmother had one in her basement, too!

  2. Did you ever get anything caught in a wringer?
    clothes can wrap around the wringer and be torn ,
    If it does, an article of the wash may
    wrap several times around a roller before it is noticed; unwinding such a
    piece is often difficult, sometimes impossible without removing a roller.
