I went to tractor supply the other day and "the manager" was at the door. he was probably about 35 years young, he said can I help you? I said yes I need a foot tub he looked at me like a calf looking at a new gate, but said come over here. he took me to the shoe department! I said no it should be where the wash tubs are, again I got a funny look. then I said a galvanized tub, he said oh! then we went to the back and he said this is what I have, I pulled down a the one and only foot tub he had, I said this is a foot tub. he said he had never heard one called that before, I said well today you got educated. it's hard to believe in a couple of generations the knowledge of things that get lost,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

LOL, hard to imagine someone not knowing what a foot tub is. Used to bath in a few different foot tubs at Grandma's house (outdoors at that!) back in the day........when I'd actually fit into one... I have 2 right now......

What do you expect? Our young people have been indoctrinated by teachers and so called professors that sold them on Socialism.

I knew what you were talking about but I have always heard them referred to as just wash tubs.

I remember getting a bath in one when I was a kid (50+ years ago)...But...my family were PA Dutch farmers....I don't think I've seen or heard the phrase "Foot Tub" in a very long time.

I knew them as wash tubs. I never washed in one, but used one to cover my tiller out in the garden during the summer. We had tornadoes pass through one night and I looked far and wide and never found it. Someone a few miles away probably got a new foot tub.
When I was coming up the large one was just a wash tub, the smaller one was the foot tub. T Rex
We had No.2 Tubs ... all I ever hear 'em called

That's not a dolls dress, it's a clothes pin bag . She said what's a clothes pin bag? Her mother had to explain, that when you hang your clothes on a line outside you need clothes pins to hang your clothes.
She said why would you hang your clothes outside, just put them in the dryer.
