Holy water and dryer
So further to the papal bull about women's liberation being largely attributable to the invention of the washing machine, this vintage washer-dryer ad which I found on Jezebel.
I'm guessing from the hair and fashion that this was made in the mid-late 50s. You can bet Mad Men -- accent on the men -- dreamed this one up. I wonder how many appliances it sold.
Anyway, thanks Catholic Church for hanging women out to dry ... again.
