Pots and pans collect more dirt and grease than any other cooking utensil.
The one best way of cleaning them is to use Gold Dust. Gold Dost not only
takes off the outer dirt coating, but digs deep after germs and hidden particles,
and makes them as spotlessly clean and sanitary as when new.
If you want your pots and pans so bright you can see your face in them
your pots and kettles spotless and germ-proof, use Gold Dost in cleaning. It
will do the work, too, in half the time of the ordinary cleanser and save most
of your labor. Gold Dust does the bulk of the work alone you merely assist it
