Wordless Wednesday — Colonial dishwashing

How did the colonists wash their dishes?

Much like we do today — with wash water and rinse water. Here are photos of wash basins at the American encampment in Camden, S.C.

I thought the metal pans looked pretty modern. This kind lady informed me that they were typical of the era. (Notice the wooden buckets for fetching the water.)

This is Part 10 of my "Trip to the Past." Here's Part 9.
