From Vacuums to Eggbeaters: A Century of Domestic Technology
From Vacuums to Eggbeaters: A Century of Domestic Technology

AIR DATE: November 12, 2010

Today we've got the Rhumba and the Swiffer, but how did Americans cook and clean in the days before Mr. Clean? The Clark County Museum looks at the past 100 years of housekeeping technology, from eggbeaters and vacuums, to ovens and microwaves. How did the design of these gadgets change? What did they reflect about women's changing domestic roles? Go with us back in time and see housekeeping's evolution over the past century!

The exhibit "Domestic Technology: Making Housework Easier" runs from Nov. 19-Feb. 26 at the Clark County Museum.
