Ce journal ne date pas d'hier.
Bill Phillips: I would think it is about 60 years old
Would OMO add brightness to this time-aged ad, Bill???
Bill Phillips: Haha probably not Ginnie, but it is a product I remember from my childhood

It was a Monday she would always remember because Mrs Croft, of Croydon, was made an offer she could not refuse. Probably a couple of quid..
Bill Phillips: You are not suggesting she was paid to look so enthusiastic?

"She boiled her things ..." Sounds a bit dicey I would say.
Bill Phillips: People used to boil there things....perhaps that is why we lost the Empire
You need to get out more.
Bill Phillips: I am far too busy
Her poor nose!
Bill Phillips: Taken a bit of a battering grin
For some reason my Mum wouldn't use Omo, she was a Persil woman.
Bill Phillips: My mother used Fairy Snow and I think she used to use Tide at one time

Those were the days....and OMO was not the best, I think it was so strong that it even got holes in the laundry... I think my mom used Persil too and some unknown stuff what was as good and a lot cheaper...
Bill Phillips: My mum used Fairy Snow and Tide. I can't remember if she ever used Persil. I know she never used Omo or Daz

what did the ad mean "she boiled her things"? and i imagine "improves even on perfect" is hardly accurate, Bill. i like this nostalgic advert shot though.
Bill Phillips: People used to use boiling water to wash white clothes. There was a machine called a baby Burco as I recall! Advertising in those days was even less true than now OMO added brightness to the whiteness which was perfect so the brightness made it better than perfect. total nonsense grin

that's all women are concerned about, if one is gullible enough to believe the ads : - )
Bill Phillips: This sort of ad has long since vanished
It's not that he understood a lot, but the idea is very original, smile
Bill Phillips: This may be a bit difficult for Google translate Claudio smile
