girdle care

Slip of a girl's blog passes along these washing instructions for your circa 1941 elastic girdles.

"soak in cold water for 20 minutes. wash in lukewarm water, scrubbing gently with a soft brush dipped in a solution of 2 tablespoons first-quality soap dissolved in a cup of hot water, then cooled. Rinse in 2 or 3 waters. Roll in a towel to remove excess water. dry away from heat."

There's a time-costly exercise in hygiene.
