If any of my readers can help me out, I want to be able to properly attribute the pivot pole laundry but I was not able to find the inventor via Google.

Hey, mom, can I help?
|Flipping the pendulum toward the pivot will cause the bag to drop into the tub. Flipping the pendulum away from the pivot will lift the bag out of the water.|
There is no reason a laundry business could not have an assembly line with twenty of these teeter-totters. The left end of the pivot pole has a hook on it. Bags of dirty laundry progressing from soapy water through successive rinses.
Tubs of water could move in the opposite direction. The last rinse would be the cleanest "newest" water. The rinse water would become progressively soapier and warmer as it moved from last rinse==>to==>first rinse. The first rinse water could be heated and additional soap could be added to become the last "wash" tub. That same water could keep moving in the opposite direction of the bags of laundry. After a stint as "first" wash it could be tossed onto the garden.
"Low Tech" can be labor and resource efficient. "Low Tech" can be elegant.
