5 Indestructible Items That Have Stood The Test Of Time According To The Internet
Do you have a family heirloom that’s been passed down to you throughout the years? Chances are that it’s not in good condition, but sometimes you can get lucky. Reddit is showing off their fave vintage items that still work today. Here are the five indestructible items that have stood the test of time.
Oxford Bookbag Circa 1880
How many Jansports have you been through during your school days? Like most kids, you probably got a new one every year. This vintage Oxford bookbag has been around since 1880 and was bought secondhand in 1950. It’s been handed down for almost 140 years and hasn’t even snapped a strap!
Waffle Iron From 1920
There’s nothing like a freshly made waffle, especially if you can make it at home yourself with a waffle iron. This handy dandy waffle maker has been around since World War I and is still putting in work. Even though it looks like a mini UFO, it probably makes a mean waffle!
80-Year-Old Cast Iron Pan
This cast iron pan may look just like the one on your stovetop at home. However, the only difference is that this one is 80 years old. Yep, you heard that correctly. This pan is probably older than your grandmother. Just make sure to dust off the cobwebs before you use it.
Hairdryer From 1939
Even though this hairdryer was probably manufactured in Nazi Germany, it is still an awesome relic to show off online. It’s in flawless working condition. Plus, it looks like it could give a good blowout too. You could start your own salon with that thing. Talk about a blast from the past.
1920 Gillette Razor
This Gillette ‘Old Type’ razor is probably the scariest item that’s still in use. The fact that someone is continuing to use their great-grandfather’s razor is a little sketchy. Would you trust putting this old thing next to your jugular? Add soap and water and it’s a slippery slope from there!
Social media response has been crazy funny!
Reddit user Doctor_Sauce joked, “If you want to talk bags and family heirlooms, I’m passing down a salad pouch from Burger King’s “Ugoff” campaign.”
Reddit user ilrosewood wisecracked, “The joy of home made waffles is never having to have a soggy waffle that sat at the window while Flo was busy flirting with the trucker hauling a load from Waxahatchee.”
Reddit user pug_nuts quipped, “I’m considering getting a used cast iron pan for $10 and just having one of the machinists at work take a lick off the top to clean it up.”
Reddit user MrKombucha teased, “At least it was good year for hairdryers.”
Reddit user Ltkeklulz jested, “Ugh, not a a mid 19th century Italian straight razor? Might as well be shaving with a steak knife.”
