I haven't seen that brand on the shelf in years. Or at least haven't noticed it. You know it has to be superior with those GREEN bleach crystals. Really, would you trust blue or red crystals?

The Wise Woman seems familiar though. The name McCormack / McCormick comes to mind. Just can't place her.

Looks (and sounds) like Phyllis Diller.

It's not Phyllis but she did show up on some old TV shows. I'm getting the impression of a housekeeper or some such.

Oxy in English sounds like OXI in Greek which means NO!

Pretty sure that's Pat Carroll, best known in more recent years as the villainous Ursula in Disney's "The Little Mermaid." Wikipedia says she's still around. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pat_Carroll_(actress). She did a LOT of TV and movies over the years.

Silly old commercials. My favorite commercial now is the Cadbury egg ones with the animals trying out to be the spokes animal. Love the bunny!
