Taken from Chapter 4: Caring for clothes Boiling and scrubbing Settlers began doing their laundry by soaking their soiled clothes in a large tub filled with hot water. After soaking, the clothes were rubbed with bars of soap and beaten with a large stick to loosen the dirt and grime. Next, the soapy clothes were scrubbed up and down on a washboard. They were rinsed, wrung out, and shaken to get out the excess water. In the summer, the settlers hung their laundry outside to dry. In the winter, the clothes were hung near the fireplace.Review:
