POWDER BETTER THAN SOAP.
Soap In powder form Is the modern cleanser,
not only because toe powder is more conve
nient, but it Is more economical, as well u
being more efficient.
Gold Dust, one of the first and the best ex
amples of soap powder, can bo used mora
economically than a soap, because tbe quan
tity desired can" be measured out and 110
more used; while wltb a soap, the whole cake
or a portion of it must be put into tbe water,
wasting more than Is really needed, and soak
In? the rest of the cake with water, which does
not Improve it. On the contrary, some soaps
lose much of their goodness by leaving tbe
unused part of tbe cake in water.
Even if only tbe amount of soap desired Is
"shaved" off, some time is required for dis
solving it. while tiold Dust dissolves Immedi
