Washboard Detailed Descriptions

Economy Glass Washboard

Glass wash surface. 12" x 24" in size. 

The Economy is an Iconic washboard for Canadian Woodenware Co. This full size washboard with the glass wash surface has likely washed more clothes than any other.

The Printing of the Economy backboard today is done on the original Letterpress machine and the printing blocks are very worn. Each print is slightly different and makes them unique on every one made today.


Canuck Metal Washboard

The Canuck Is likely one of the oldest produced washboards for Canadian Woodenware Co. There are many old printing blocks with the Canuck name on it and all appear to have metal wash surfaces . The Canuck name with the Maple Leaf is truly Canadian and we wonder what the history of Canuck is.
