Snowflakes Soap Flakes

Loading the player...

This series of advertisements explains the benefits of hand-washing sheer silk or nylon stockings in Snowflakes, "the thinner, finer soap flakes."

Listeners are given tips on how to prevent runs and ladders caused by suspenders, and "brittle threads caused by perspiration."

Two women discuss the expense of buying sheer stockings – with the recommendation to give all stockings more than average care by washing them regularly with Snowflakes.

Snowflakes are also useful for hand-washing woollen clothing – "Don’t be afraid to wash your twin-set after it’s lost its first freshness."
