rub off or dust off. Its shine lasts four
times longer than the shine of any other
polish. You only need to polish one
fourth as often, yet your stove will be
cleaner, brighter and better looking than
it has been since you first bought it. Use
on your parlor stove, kitchen tove or gras itoa.
Get a can from roar hardware or stove dealer.

authorized to refund your money. But we feet
