So it's "Use our soap" or some ditsy blond chick is going to launch herself out of a tree and land on you??

Is there any other body part that Ivory Soap can make young looking? 😜

Am I the only one that suspects Charlie had a handjob fetish?

We boomers remember the TV commercials for Ivory liquid in which some young guy would mistake the mother for the daughter, all due to "young looking hands." As if that's the body part guys stare at.

Oh for the days of old. When women stayed home to take care of the house and one of their top concerns was dish-pan hands. I just read somewhere that hand washing helps prevent allergies.

I heard that if you don't sing Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star while washing your hands you'll die of a flesh-eating, super virus from Chinese Chickens.

(Now, THAT'S a rumor!)

The old commercials were so corny, simple and funny. But they still have the saying, "As seen on TV" so the stuff advertised must be good.

We cut the cable to the TV a few years ago, so except for motels we never watch it. Anyone up for re-runs of Honey Bobo?

99 and 44/100ths % pure was not for the dish detergent but only for the hand soap. Detergent and soap are different things. And in fact, today's Ivory bars of "soap" are no longer soap and no longer have the word "soap" on the packaging.

Ah.... I'm a guy, Daka, if it gets dirty things clean it's soap and I'd have no idea what is/was used to wash dishes as that's women's work and happens in the kitchen well past where the the frig is.
