Gettin' Our Hands Dirty with Soap

Oh the olden days! How horrible you were to the ladies.

HOWEVER, I live for the woodcut inspired illustrations that someone drew all over your advertisements. It's basically a work of art.

Here's another gem:


Old soap ads are notorious for being extremely racist and sexist, stay tuned for a feature on the racism that was absolutely rampant in old soap print ads. I think I wrote a 12-page paper about it in University.

Palmolive is obviously still around today, but their ads are less than inspiring.

BORING!!! This almost makes me miss the sexist ones. At least with those I could get outraged about something...
