Lay for the Day
2nd June


1740: the birthday of the Marquis de Sade.


Have You Stopped –


Getting biological out there in Staines,
in Sudbury and Hornchurch?
Do you find your usual tumble dry?
Try FLAJ!

Scientifically formulated,
with FLAJ you bring to bear the eek!
o-friendly power you need
for a low lather at high temperatures.
And how do you like your end result?

Fast colours, gorgeous, good as
brand spanking new.
Look how it perked up my delicates
and left my whole awash with a deep down softness.”

So Mums remember –
FLAJ FLAJ FLAJ
Forget about blue Mondays
and let your weeks begin with shrieks.
What puts the ows in houses?
FLAJ
