Full color 7 1/2" x 11 1/2" ad that discusses both their 99 44/100% Pure Hand Soap and their Ivory Flakes Laundry Soap. There is a five-frame cartoon that tells a story for each product. In the first ad two sisters are together and the one offers to bathe the baby of the other. The child starts to cry and his mother notices how rough her sister's hands are. She claims it is due to the rough dishwashing soap she uses and the other lady questions why she doesn't use Ivory Soap to wash her dishes since it does a great job on that and softens your skin too. The lady with the rough hands is worried that she cannot afford such an expensive soap but she is told that it is actually cheaper than regular dishwashing soap. The other ad shows two sisters preparing for a visit from a rich aunt by planning on wearing the lounging pajamas that she bought for them. The one sister brings hers out, bright as new, as the other one finds hers having been washed by the cleaning lady. The one done with Ivory Flakes look much better than the one done with the bath towels in a general detergent. The sister with the faded pajamas is relegated to having to fake an illness, miss a night at the theatre and dissapoint the lady with all the money.

Black and white 7 1/2" x 11 1/4" ad that tells us about the difference Rinso Laundry Detergent can make for you and Lifebuoy Health Soap can make on your relationships. The ad has a story told in eight-frames that are entitled "Gossip at a Summer Hotel" and tells the story about an engaged couple who seem to be somewhat cold to each other. The woman asks the man to go into town and buy himself some Lifebuoy soap since he seems to be aflicted with B.O. He does and their relationship starts taking off again. The portion of the ad entitled "Even her Husband Noticed it..." is about when one woman is talking to her neighbor who is ready to pull her already-dry laundry off of the clothesline. The lady whose laundry is just going up to be dried asks the other how she can already have had her laundry scrubbed and boiled and her neighbor answers that with Rinso she only needs to soak.

Safeguard
Full color 9 1/2" x 13" ad for the fact that their Deodorant Soap now comes in Three Colors. The large picture shows bars of the three colors and the boxes they came in lying on a wet surface with beads of water resting on each bar of soap. The caption says that "Now there are two more ways to get the best possible deodorant protection" and the text indicates that you can look at the color stripe on the box to ensure choosing the right color. Very important, we all know that a man cannot get clean using a bar of pink soap. The text also confirms that all three colors work just as well, they all contain the same "bacteria-fighting formula".

Swan
Full color 10" x 13" ad for their Pure White Floating Soap. There is a picture of a Swan and the headline "Oho! A baby-gentle floating soap that's a sudsin' whiz - Swan up and see!". The ad shows three members of the family using it at the same time: the baby sitting in his little tub washing himself (oh yeah, I remember those days), the father sitting in the bathtub bathing himself and the mother using the same soap to wash her dishes. You wonder how they could all use the same soap at the same time, this soap was snapable. Each bar would break in half so that you could use "half for kitchen - half for bath".
