They are cute, aren't they? A lot of us have found them at thrift stores and estate and yard sales.

Frigidaire gave these out free for a couple years in the early 60s when you visited a dealer and looked at new machines.

It may be because Frigidaire tangled and spun the wrinkles into clothing so much and they felt they needed to give people away to get the wrinkles out, but it is a very cool thing, and they still show up from time to time at thrift stores, etc.

We had one when I was a kid. My mom's friend Mary Elizabeth's husband was the manager of a store that sold Frigidaire products, and they gave it to us.

Once Frigidaire started putting the loading instructions and diagram on the underside of the lid showing how the tub was to be loaded as if divided into 4 sections and nothing was to be wrapped around the agitator, tangling was greatly reduced. You, John, said this decades ago. When I wash long sleeve shirts in my front loaders, especially the Creda, they tangle. When a teacher was washing dress shirts in her 1954 Westinghouse, they would occasionally ball up. Our 1958 LK would tangle shirts because of the strong suction for the self cleaning filter on the left hand side of the tub, according to the Sears service man.
