the depression 1930s and early 1940s, if you were renting
or just did not have much money, for a dollar or less you
could clean a room. Sometimes it was three cans for
twenty-nine cents, that's a lot less than a dollar.
We did not
have Silly Putty, we did not have Play Dough, we had the Magic
ball of Absorene. Mom would show us five kids how to have
fun wiping down the wallpaper. In the 1930s when you
rented and almost all you could make went for food, shoes and
clothes, you did not replace anything if you could fix it first.
Clean it, sometimes we could paint it if the landlord furnished
the paint. Sometimes we cleaned the wall covering which was
paper. (Not the washable vinyl like today.)
from 1891 to now ..and still doing the job.
