Comet
Full color 9" x 12" ad for their Cleanser with Josephine the Plumber. There are six pictures that tell the story about the day that "The wife's away but Josephine saves the day!" Josephine is called to open up a plugged kitchen sink which is accomplished but Josephine comments on the stains in the sink. The husband isn't real sure on how to do that either but Josephine suggests using Comet against the cleanser that his wife has. The Comet half of the sink is spotless and the husband is now anxious for his wife to return and see what he has done, all by himself.

Easy-Off
Black and white 10" x 13" ad that says that "It's Clean Your Oven Week" and "We'll Pay You to use Easy-Off: America's No. 1 Oven Cleaner". The drawings say that they will offer you "25 cents cash refund" on the larger size and "10 cents cash refund" when you buy the regular size. The ad tells you "Now! Let Easy-Off get your oven ready for the holidays...and keep it cooking clean". There are two photographs at the bottom: one says that "Easy-Off does the hard work" and it tells you how to get your oven clean and the second picture says that you should "Keep ahead of the job" by using Easy-Off often.

S.O.S.
Full color 10" x 13" ad that describes another use for the Magic Scouring Pads. The ad headline asks if you are "Cooking Outdoors?" and warns that if you are you should "take along the most useful cleanser there is!". The ad has pictures of people at Barbecues, out Camping or relaxing on Picnics and claims that whichever you choose, you should clean-up with S.O.S.. There is a smaller picture of a red convertible being driven by a family of four with the caption claiming that "Experts agree S.O.S. easily cleans white-wall tires - really white". This ad is larger than my scanner bed so the outer edges of the ad will not be visible in the scanned view.
