This object - a curved metal wire with a wooden handle - was used to hang socks to dry. Socks could be hung on the wire and the whole object was set against a wall or on a table near a wood stove. Truth or Fiction?




This object is a wire rug beater.  Before vacuum cleaners were a common household appliance, rugs and carpets had to be cleaned in another way. Dirty rugs would be taken outside and hung over a clothesline or railing, and this tool would be held by the user and swung against the fabric until the dust and dirt came free.
