PERSIL washes clothes with Oxygen, and Oxygen is harmless to hands, harmless to colors and harmless to fabrics; but it banishes dirt and grease like magic. However, there is no magic about PERSIL. It's a real, scientific discovery. PERSIL is simply the right way to clean clothes. Rubbing is the wrong way—so is alkali—-these methods destroy clothes and don't get them any too clean, either. The PERSIL way is to Soak, Boil and Rinse. The clothes, -whether laces or overalls, come out spotless, stainless and beautifully cicaii; without any soapy smell and without being injured in any way. The washing is done in less lhaiv half the usual time. PERSIL is for sale in your city. Let it take the place of hours of drudgery.
