Lysol Douche?...

I remember seeing mom's red rubber bag with a tube hanging from the shower head and not know what it was... not much caring, either. Of course as I got older I learned. But using Lysol for douching wasn't one of the things I learned.

When a friend e-mailed this ad from the 30's to me (along with some others) I read the silly thing and when I got to using Lysol, after I picked my chin up off my chest, I fell out laughing and knew I just had to share.

Apologies to any fellows out there that might be embarrassed. As a friend we all know and love likes to say, "Just keeping it real."

A friend of mine was young back in the 40's, she worked at a 5 and 10 store. She said that ladies used to come in there smelling like Lysol. And they really thought they were something.
Nowadays if someone came near me smelling like that, I'd think she's been cleaning house. But it would always remind me of her and her little story.
I can't imagine using that stuff for that purpose.

I only know that Lysol was used in farming communities in Argentina decades ago as a disinfectant for the men who had been working with sheep and cows...and that it stung!

I had no idea it was used for 'feminine hygiene' and as a special way to keep your husband happy. Ugh and double ugh. Click on the picture to enlarge, and you'll see the man's expression is very uncertain as to whether he's all that delighted about the way his wife now smells...

Made me laugh!! thanks.

OMG that was more information then I needed. Oh my... just say No...

Lysol reminds me of After the hurricane Camille...we thought that was the bad storm till Katrina.

But, I can't do lysol for that reason and NOW for your reason..

Thanks, Thanks alot for sharing!

That's just wrong. So very wrong.

Debbie said...

I'll never think of Lysol in the same way again!!!

God Bless~

I have an image. Husband walks in after a hard day at work not happy because the house is filthy. Wife says, But dear, I couldn't scrub the floors, countertops, and bathrooms. There was only enough lysol for my weekly personal cleansing.
I think I'd rather smell like a summer rain or a field of daisies.

I hear this a couple of years ago and it just boggled my mind. I so wished my mom was still around so I could ask her. I'll never think of Lysol in the same way....imagine...

hetty said...

This has certainly changed the way I think about Lysol!

Laura ~Peach~ said...

if you think back to the brown bottles of lysol (which you can STILL buy) lysol STUNK... so just imagine the ... oh never mind ACK...

I can't believe this!! Snarf. You know that was man's idea. Ever read Even Cowgirl's Get The Blues by Tom Robbins?

Tipper said...

I've heard older ladies talk about using Lysol for douching. Looks like it would have burnt like heck-I was too shy to ask : )
