After clothes were washed and rinsed, water had to be removed by twisting. So, the wringer/mangle machine was developed. The mangle used two rollers under spring tension to squeeze water out of clothing and household linen. Each laundry item would be fed through the wringer separately. The first wringers were hand-cranked. The wringer swung over the wash tub so extracted wash water fell back into the tub to be reused for the next load..
