Summary

Flyer advertising Pretty Kitty cleaner, issued by United Soap and Perfumery Co Pty Ltd, Melbourne, circa 1910.

This single sheet flyer, colourfully printed in blue text on pink paper, claims that Pretty Kitty cleaner is a 'solution of the domestic problem!' It states that the 'new Australian cleaner and polisher cleans everything but clothes!' and was the 'best and cheapest article ever placed before the public'.

Illustrations on the flyer show a domestic maid polishing knives, washing pots, doing house work, and cleaning doors and washstands. The text notes that the cleaner could be used on windows, silver, brass, copper, tin and all metalware, glassware, china, crocker, linoleum, tables, floors, paintwork, baths and enamelware. It also notes that Pretty Kitty cleaner, which was sold in a tin, removed oil stains and rust and would be useful to engineers and mechanics who could use it on their hands.
