That's one hour wasted!
Dishes get dirty, greasy and sticky, and soap

cleans the surface; it doesrrt dig out the corners
and drive out the decayed food particles. More

hidden particles of dirt and kills the germs of de
cayed food which ordinary dish-water overlooks.
GOLD DUST sterilizes, as well as cleanses.

"They go any pla?e that people want

he bought a lot right across the street and
