My grandmother sold Avon Products when I was growing up so I can actually say I grew up with it. Back in her day the only products they sold were talcum powders, soaps   and a cologne called “Cotillion”.  Nowadays it’s like a department store, selling everything from A to Z.

I sold it for over forty-five years –off and on– and the last ten  years continuously. I got a myriad of excuses from people who didn’t want to buy it, such as they were “allergic” to it and I would think to myself, “well, are you allergic to candles, jewelry, etc.” I’m sure the customers would come up to a ready answer to that also. But I did very well and enjoyed being a sales person. Made many friends also.

I recently saw an article about the uses of one of their best-selling products, Skin-So-Sft and wish to share it with you:

1. It’s a bath oil, and it’s an after shower moisturizer. It  can be used to remove makeup, and it’s a great tanning oil.

2. It’s a hot oil treatment to treat cuticles. It’s a great massage oil for tired muscles.

3. It’s a great insect repellent for people and pets, and  it helps relieve itching caused by insect bites and dry skin.

4.Sponge it around doors, windows and screens to keep crawling bugs out.

5. It’s a good wood cleaner and conditioner for natural wood, It removes glue and gum left from price tags and labels from glass, metal and most plastics.

6. It cleans off tape marks left from bandages on skin. It cleans ink from skin and most vinyl surfaces, also painted surfaces.

7.It removes heavy oil and grease from skin and non-porous surfaces. It removes soap scum from shower doors, shower curtains, windows  and bathroom and kitchen fixtures.

8. It removes lime and hard water deposits from fixtures, tile, shower doors and windows.

9. It removes tar spots from car finishes  without damage to the  paint. It’s an oil lubricant for fitting pipe joints that won’t slip together.

10.Painting something? Use it to remove paint from hands instead of turpentine.

11.Mix five parts water, one part Skin- So -Soft  and mist on show animals and brush in. It makes their coats glean and keeps insects of so they don’t fidget.

12. It makes an excellent cleaner for gold, sterling or other metals. Use a soft cloth to apply and another cloth or tissue to remove and buff.

13. It works great on brass and even copper.   Try it, you’ll love it.

Thought for the day:  The happiest people don’t necessarily have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have.
