Ajax All-Purpose Cleaner - "Armed with Ajax" (Commercial, 1979)

Views: 1016


Here's a commercial for Ajax All-Purpose Cleaner, with the power of ammonia plus a powerful grease-cutting solvent to cut through grease - just like a white tornado.

"Get that feeling of cleaning power!"

This aired on local Chicago TV on Friday, February 2nd 1979.

Is that Ellen Travolta?

At the start of this clip, why is she sitting on the job? Her hubby will fire her butt!

"This is a lot of house for one woman to do"


"but when I clean, I feel like an army, because I AM!"

I'm not; I feel like one person doing the job.

O-Cedar mops and a crest shield with the Ajax logo. :O0


Does anyone else? I don't. Who gets exited over mopping a floor...

BTW: What's a "white tornado?" Different from a dusty, brown tornado?

And from a glass/plastic bottle? What's up with that?

And B,BTW: She's all blue: Is she in prison doing time?

I had to get that out. When I was 6 years old, I saw this. I thought this was an ugly TV spot back in '79 as it is today.

In response to 'Dth1971's' query: I thought it could've looked like her, but wasn't too sure.

She looks like someone but I don't think it's Ellen Travolta: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dtvaTdc_qIc

Kathie Lee Gifford?
Sounds like her, but she went through a lot of physical changes through the years.
Hard to tell.
