Clorox, 1974

From American "Woman's Day", September 1974.

"Clorox. If you thought your sink was sunk.

Clorox gets out stubborn stains without scrubbing or scratching! Just run two inches warm water into sink, pour in 3/4 cup Clorox liquid bleach. Swish solution around, let stand for 5 minutes. Then simply drain away many stubborn food stains - even tea and grape juice - as well as germs and odors.

Remove tea and coffee stains from coffee pots, tea pots and cups. Just soak 5 - 10 min. in solution of 3 tbs. Clorox to quart of hot water. Rinse. (Not for metal pots.)

Clorox. It does more than the wash."

The manager,
The Shell Company of Australia Limited
Brisbane

Dear Sir,

One of our machines, a Gypsy Moth, VH-UIR has used Golden Shell Oil solely and the Oil has been changed at proper intervals, with the result that when the Machine came in for a general overhaul, after the Machine covered 35,000 miles, there was no necessity for replacements, and Bearings, etc, were found to be in perfect order, equal to any machines that have only done 50 hours running on other lubricating Oils.

I also wish to mention the fact that the Air Service Machines, using Siddeley Lynx Engines and your lubricating Oil, Golden Shell, have done 275 hours per Engine, covering 18,000 miles in the first month, at the cost of only one valve spring, and the Engines are in perfect order and condition.

Ia m,
Yours faithfully,
Technical Adviser

Each drop counts"

"An 'Orange Blossom' skin

Your complexion is smoother - clearer, too - with your First Cake of Camay!

Mrs. Jackson Stanton, the former Marian Richards of California, is a recent - and lovely - Camay Bride

Doesn't Marian Stanton look like a story-book princess? Her hair is the color of spun gold - her eyes are azure. Yes, and Marian has a complexion soft and lovely as any heroine of fiction. Her first cake of Camay brought romantic new beauty to her skin!

Say 'Camay' and Marian's eyes sparkle. 'Camay smooths and freshens your complexion so quickly,' she confides to friends. 'Why, when I changed to regular care and mild, gentle Camay - my very first cake brought a clearer, softer look to my skin!'

You'll be lovelier, too - when you change to regular care - use Camay alone. Camay's lather is rich and creamy - just the kind you need to wake the sleeping beauty of your skin. Use Camay - and a softer, clearer complexion will be your reward!"

Golden Age Americanized Macaroni seconds the hostess' invitation. And inviting is the name of it whether combined with meat or other foods, or served alone - a meal in itself, with more food value than meat and bread of equal weight. There's magic in macaroni, the most quickly prepared of dishes - magic in the way it combines with every variety of meat, vegetables, fruit - it makes everything from the breakfast cereal that begins a day even to a dessert that finishes the dinner at night."
