Time for a trip in the wayback machine to September, 1954, when Good Housekeeping cost .35c and children with rosy cheeks were on the covers of national magazines.
Clearly aimed at laundry converts. And I hate doing laundry, so, you know. If I could fit a washer and dryer in my house I would sit around in pedal pushers while I did the laundry too.
Another washer ad. This one I find interesting because I am used to thinking of the 1950s as a kind of profligate era when no one thought about the environment, and this ad heavily stresses saving water. (Possibly from a moneysaving perspective rather than an environmental one, though.) I was also intrigued by the reference to “delicate modern fabrics,” since I thought the whole point of modern fabrics was to avoid the delicacy issue.
You can use this on babies in addition to cats? I’ll have to keep that in mind.
