Hmm. So Calgon over here is something you put in your washing machine to stop it getting all scaled up inside.
I suspect it's something different over there (bath cleaner maybe)? Please explain. Thank you.

Sorry, Kelly, sometimes I forget about Blogger's global reach. In the US, Calgon is a moisturizing bath product.

A "Calgon moment" comes from a long-running series of American ads featuring women enjoying relaxing baths after a hectic day.

A vintage TV ad from 1980:

I adore the top bathroom. Everything is perfect. Just need some Fresh Milk bubbles and I'd be good to go.

Yep, take me away. Straight to that first bathroom...wow!

Strange, I mentioned Calgon in my post for tomorrow. We must have some kind of sympatico going on... or maybe we both need some time off!

Ooh, I knew you were a May Baby like me (I'm 5/23)! I'm still trying to figure out a way to mail you some Pop-Tarts without Customs finding out about it.

Robin said...

Yeah, I meant to put that on the other post, the one with the crayon rings. Sheesh, it must be time for bed.

Raina said...

Enh, no problem. You're a "Robin" born in the spring? I love that!

i love that first tub! and neither hubby or me would be leaning on fixtures!

I generally think tubs are one of those things realtors say you must have, but that you never really use. These are certainly attractive, I'm a fan of that first one as well.

I have been MIA due to finally painting my bath! These are belle!

What I love about photo #1 is that I can totally knock off that artwork.

What I love about photo #2 is everything. Yummy perfection
