Historic Ad - Ripple Washette
posted: Mar. 09, 2007
This 1960 ad was too funny to leave out. The Ripple Washette was advertising a $1 special on what I have to assume is bedspread dyeing, and not washing a dyed bedspread. That isn't the funny part. The crack up is the last line specifying the location of the Washette - "Behind The Bank In Broad Ripple". A description like that today would take days to search!
