Keepin’ it clean: Vintage soap ads
I’ve never heard of her before, but according to Wikipedia, Sally Eilers was an American actress whose film career spanned from 1927 – 1935.
Maybe if she had used something besides “toilet soap” as the focal point of her beauty regimen, she would have been more popular.
I suppose Pears Soap was trying to illustrate the well-known phrase “throwing the baby out with the bathwater”. But, does this ad entice you to buy Pears Soap?
I’m getting more of a Pears-Killer-Soap-on-the-Loose vibe from this:
“Help me, Mommy! Why did you buy Pears’ Soap? Why??!!”
