Space-age Lestoil ad

From the Boing Boing Flickr Pool, this contribution by V.Valenti, showing a superb space-age Lestoil ad.

Lestoil Woman of the Future, 1968.


    1. I immediately thought along similar lines…this is what Earth women can look forward to if Gingrich’s (*shudder*) moon base plan goes through.

    2. Don’t be surprised to see legislation allowing one wife on Earth and one wife on the Moonbase.

  1. Shouldn’t she be wearing heavy gloves when she handles that stuff?  It already seems to be doing unpleasant things to her fingernails.

    1. You’d be surprised.

      Fine as flour and rough as sandpaper, Moon dust caused ‘lunar hay fever,’ problems with space suits, and dust storms in the crew cabin upon returning to space. 
      During the Apollo 17 mission, for example, crewmembers Harrison “Jack” Schmitt and Gene Cernan had trouble moving their arms during moonwalks because dust had gummed up the joints. “The dust was so abrasive that it actually wore through three layers of Kevlar-like material on Jack’s boot,” Taylor says.

  2. Pfft – so silly.  The moon will be cleaned by what ever cheap minority labor we can exploit. Gah.

    1. As a matter of fact, Lestoil is great for sanitizing a wife’s feminine bits, to make her more pleasing to her man after reentry (that’s astronaut speak, FWIW).

  3. I love those old brand names: “Less Toil.”  So super freakin’ sweet!

    The white bindi is pretty freakin sweet too.

  4. Lestoil is hard to find anymore and it’s a shame. That stuff is an AWESOME cleaner. Way to drop the ball America. We have to have a dirty moon now.
