"Laundry is being passed through the mangle"

This vintage photo reminds me of something I spotted on the label of my heated mattress pad...

I removed the electric heating mattress pad on our bed and read the label before washing it and packing it away for the season. On the label there were various methods of washing, by hand, by machine, and one line warning "us" not to put it through the wringer (or "the mangle" as the photo's titled).

Who buys and pays to use an electric mattress pad and also has a wringer washing machine? No judgement; just jaw-dropping amazement!
