I remember these. I would help Mom or Grandma sprinkle the clothes. Mom took in ironing to make a little extra money.
I grew up ironing and still love to iron.
Below is a story someone emailed me and I thought I'd share it with you.
MEMORIES from a friend :
My Dad is cleaning out my grandmother's house (she died in December) and he brought me an old Royal Crown Cola bottle. In the bottle top was a stopper with a bunch of holes in it.. I knew immediately what it was, but my daughter had no idea.. She thought they had tried to make it a salt shaker or something. I knew it as the bottle that sat on the end of the ironing board to 'sprinkle' clothes with because we didn't have steam irons.
