Grandma Bragg used Fels Naptha Soap. I remember a late 1960s "Wisk" laundry detergent commercial where the catch phrase was "RING AROUND THE COLLAR!" chanted by obnoxious voices. I always wondered why one didn't just "Wash Around The Neck!"

Johnny Carson's response to "Ring around the collar!" was "Pie in the face!" Failing that, the kid should carry around a baseball bat, to help instill manners in her ruder classmates.
