An Aid to Spotless Lata Tubs
It is easy to keep the bathtub clean
and bright, when you know how. A
solution of Gold Dust washing powder
and warm water will quickly remove
every particle of dirt. If any rough
places or dark spots appear, tnese can
be easily removed by sprinkling a little
Gold Dust washing powder on t cloth
and rubbing briskly. The water baslu
and water closet can be kept perfectly
bright if thoroughly cleansed with Gold
Dust once a week. Gold Dust not only
cleanses but sterilizes everything with
which it comes in contact.
