Friday, October 26, 2012 will save your marriage.

The copy reads:
A woman needs two deodorants
there are certain times when the most fastidious woman feels the need of added protection against offending.
During hot weather, after the menstrual period or times of emotional stress, to name a few. A lysol douche
gives you protection against the very germs that cause offensive odors. And Lysol is so gentle it won't harm delicate tissues.
For the confidence that comes from being REALLY sure, try new Lysol for your feminine hygiene needs today.

I feel the need to puke now.

This one is equally disturbing.  I only could stomach part of the copy:
"She was guilty of "ONE NEGLECT" that mars many marriages "LYSOL" helps avoid this."

I'm totally scared for life with this last one:

This is just part of what the copy says:
A man marries a woman because he loves her. So instead of blaming him if married love begins to cool, she should question herself.
Is she truly trying to keep her husband and herself eager, happy married lovers?  One most effective way to safeguard her dainty feminine allure is by practicing complete feminine hygiene as provided by vaginal douches with a scientifically correct preparation like "Lysol"...

Oh the horror!  Ladies, be glad we know better now!



  1. This isn't the same formula of Lysol we have now and it was heavily diluted when used. Also, douching was a code for "birth control", since actual birth control was illegal back then.

  2. I totally get that, it's just the whole cracks me up as do the ads.

    1. I love these ads. I have a ton scanned on my Flickr.
