  The History of the Washboard Industry in the United States : Columbus Washboard Company
The rubbing surface for this washboard had been patented and the name trademarked in 1907.From 1931 to 1938, twenty two other washboard names were introduced to the market place.
Problems successfully faced by the Columbus Washboard Company, were wage and price controls during the second world war and after and not being able to secure metal for the rubbing surfaces during this war.
This may have been a blessing, as the metal shortage caused the glass washboard to be born.

The frottoir or vest frottoir (from Cajun French "vest to be rubbed") is played as a stroked percussion instrument, often in a band with a drummer, while the washboard generally is a replacement for drums.
In a jug band, the washboard was stroked with a single whisk-broom and functions as the drums for the band, playing only on the back-beat, for most songs, as a substitute for a snare drum.
Some washboard players may add other small percussion devices to the washboard, such as a cymbal, woodblock, or cowbell, which can periodically be struck to vary the effect.

 Washboard Roads, Alaska Science Forum
Mather, who was studying nuclear physics in Australia in the early 1960s, wasn't satisfied with the theories of the time: that washboard roads were caused by "peculiar" soil, wind from passing vehicles, car exhaust, or impulses from car engines.
He noticed several keys to the formation of washboard roads: the road surface had to be non-rigid; the road had to be dry; and washboard tends to form just beyond an irregularity in the road surface, such as a bump, dip or small rock.
The washboard design spreads across the road when other cars repeat the action of the car that initiated it.
