I need help, please. What laundry detergent came with free glassware? Does anyone remember? My grandmother used to tell me stories about getting her glassware in the detergent box. I didn't grow up around here and I can't remember the name of the detergent. Thanks.

Ouaker Oats used to put red glass ware and dishes in boxes, it was square. I think my sister has some that someone gave her.Do you remember when flour came in pillow cases?After 50 lbs. of flour you had a set.Feed sacks dresses were a staple when I was young, if you were lucky enough to get two alike you could make a pretty dress. The white ones could be bleached out and used for everything from petty coats ,that is slips for you young folks, to dish rags.I guess this was up until the late 50s early 60s.If any one has any old feed sacks now, they are worth a lot,oh for the good old days.

honey, we didn't throw away anything back then, I have worn feed sack dresses, even when I started high school, had some under pants made out of them also lol. My mom would look in a catalog and make her own pattern from looking at the pictures and would sew with a needle and thread.Remember ric rac ?Dont think many people sew anymore.

Any one remember the old battery radio? Or living without electricity? We had 2 rooms and a path, had to carry water from where ever if you didn't have a well, chop wood wash on a wash board, hang clothes on the clothes line year around,and the old flat irons we had to heat on the cook stove? The first phone we had was on a party line, now this was in the 60s,I was a teenager before I saw a T,V.If young folks had to live like that for a week now they would not know where to begin.I really wouldn't want to but at least I think I would know how.lol

I remember stemware being in Duzz Detergent.
Tide and Cheer both had wash cloths, face towels and bath towels.
Oatmeal had cups and saucers in it. Just a few of the things from the good old days.

I can remember the glasses but I can't remember the brand name. I also remember the ones we got out of Oats. There were also some big spoons. I think they were ice cream spoons. they had a hole in the end of the handle so we could hang them up.
I remember the 3 cents postage stamp. 17 cents a gallon gas. Oh, the GOOD OLD DAYS!!!! we are living in them. Just a couple weeks ago I was cooking over a fire in my fireplace. Had that been in Lexington or western KY, they would not have known what to do.

We walked to the head of Wooton to get Dan Hamilton to charge the battery. Raised everything we ate too. I can still can and put food away for the winter. A lot of young peolpe today don't even know how to cook let alone raise a garden.
