No one without a cold could fail to notice it. But why don't you have ym:r clothes washed with Fels-Naptha? It will leave them sweeo and fresh without any odor. And they'll be cleaner and wear longer than if washed in the old, waabfeoil er way. • • Do your clothes have an odor when they come from the wash ? No—if you wash with Fels-Naptha. Yes—Jf you use ordinary laundry soap or washing powders. If you could see what goes into the ordinary soaps and powders, you would understand why they leave the clothes yel low and ill-smelling. If you could see the pure materials that form a basis for Fels-Naptha you would know why it makes your clothes white and sweet, free from all odors. Compare clothes washed with Fels-Naptha in cold or lukewarm water with clothes on which ordinary laundry soaps and powders have been used. No other soap is anything like Fels-Naptha—in results. Be sure to use Fels-Naptha the Fels-Naptha way, in cold or lukewarm water—no boiling.
