GOLD DUST will
sterilize your kitchen
things and make them
wholesome and sanitary
GOLD DUST does more than clean it steril
izes and leaves your kitchen thing's sanitarily safe.
The ordinary soap-washed utensil is not fit to eat
from, because soap does not cleanse as thoroughly,
as it should does not kill germs of decay which
are bound to lurk in oft-used utensils.
Besides its cleansing virtues, GOLD DUST
ihas the merit of doing work quickly, and saving
your strength. It will
do most oi the cleaning
. without your assistance,
and do it too, in a quicker
and more thorough man
ner than will soap, or
any other cleanser.
