1606 - sweep it
I think I have a winner in the competition for "The Oddest Thing My Grandparents Did." When Gram moved in after my mom died, she wouldn't use the vacuum cleaner. She said that all it did was blow dust around. So she put water in a bucket, with sheets of newspaper to soak in the water. Then she pulled the dripping sheets out and tore them up and threw them on the rugs. Then she swept up the newspaper, which (she said) pulled up all the dust and dirt from the rugs. La Voila! Clean rugs. (It was so embarrassing!)
