1920s Advertisements

From September, 1921 issue of The Ladies’ Home Journal. I love old advertisements.

  1. I think we generally called it laundry soap. It was used to clean everything, though, including the mouths of children who swore . Fels Naptha was what many a mother reached for when she washed her child’s mouth out with soap for uttering a naughty word.

  2. Thanks, Nancy. I adore the advertisement. I was looking up the journals you mentioned and look what I found!

  3. I *cannot* imagine how disgusting that would be to the poor child who used profanity! I use this soap everyday in the world’s best homemade laundry detergent I make and it is awesome but very, very odiferous. I love to look at old ad campaigns too.
