House-dresses Aprons Maids uniforms Always fresh and spotless now that washing is so easy I GUESS I another day. Hasn't the ,u Kooti trinlfv dress made just one thing more to wash. Une thing more to scrub and boil and get hot and tired over. It seemed as if you'd never get through washday. But now there is a new way without any of the toil and drudgery that used to make washing so terrible. Try it just once the new Rinso way. Rinso is the new form of soap in granules for your family washing. You soak your clothes in the rich suds overnight. Or for three bours iu the morning. Then rinse that's all. A o hard rubbing no boiling You do away with rubbing except for very badly soiled places, such as collars, wrist bands and hems. And these you need only rub lightly between your bands. Rinso is so pure and so high in cleansing value it simply soais the dirt out of the clothes. Then, when you xinse, the dirt floats right out You do away with boiling entirely unless jou wish to boil your clothes, occasionally, to sterilize them. You do away with half the wear on your clothes. Because it's the hard, rubbing and boiling that wear out the fabrics and fade out the colors. Use Rinso for 3our whole washing. Get it from your grocer today. The easy directions re on the packace. Lever Bros. Co., Cambridge, Mass. (Makers of Lux).
