As some of this furniture is very fine it requires careful attention and we have found it neces sary to issue the following instructions covering its care: "Use a weak solution of Ivory Soap suds, lukewarm. Apply with a soft cloth and dampen only about one square foot at a time, drying promptly with a chamois skin." The above recipe practically is the same as the one we have published for many years in books of directions for the general household use of Ivory Soap. We recommend it for furniture and woodwork of every kind. This booklet, "Unusual Uses of Ivory Soap," contains over a hundred recipes helpful especially at house-cleaning time. You may have a copy postpaid. Address The Procter C Gamble Co., Dept. 23-C, Cincinnati, 0. IVORY SOAP 99% PURE 'V FLOATS "Mention the Geographic-It identifies you."
