Vintage Cleaning Commercials

What a hoot!  I love this vintage Ajax commercial with its snappy tune.
Remember to pause the playlist at the right to hear the commercial.
If that doesn't make you wanna start scrubbin' the tub I don't know what will.

Here's one for Mr. Clean from 1958.  The announcer says it's "new" from Proctor and Gamble.  I couldn't get it to download onto the blog. You can link to it here.

According to Wikipedia, Mr. Clean's theme song, has been around since the product's introduction, initially sung as a popular-music style duet between a man (Don Cherry) and a woman (Betty Bryan).  Thomas Scott Cadden wrote the jingle at his home in the spring of 1957 while working for Tatham-Laird & Kudner Advertising Agency.  You can learn more about Mr. Clean here

Here is one more Mr. Clean commercial, this one from the 1960's.

Now, with these jingles swimming around in our brains, lets go get some housework done!
