According to this vintage ad, women should be ashamed of their hands due to cleaners that "roughen and redden" them. "Your hands, your bathtub... both show what kind of cleaner you use." But Bon Ami cleaner is different, apparently, and will leave your fingers and nails soft and smooth.
Well, if this isn't enough to make you shove your paws into your pockets in embarrassment, we don't know what is. We kid. (But thank goodness for Dawn with Olay, right?).
