Persil

I am back in Beirut, after a wonderful holiday, and congratulate my housekeeper on the fact that both our dogs are so beautifully white. I’ve had one of them for some 15 years, and he hasn’t been so white since he was a puppy. I’ve tried all kinds of dog shampoos, and even Baby Johnson shampoo, but to no avail.

Is there a special way that you wash them or rinse them?” I ask .
No,” she replies.“
Well, what dog shampoo did you use then?”
Oh, I ran out of dog shampoo. I’m using Persil now.”

Don’t complain,” says my son when he sees my face, “Be glad she didn’t put them in the dryer.”

Indeed. But they are beautifully white

At least their fur didn't fall off. You might want to check their eyesight though.

Funny.

I come back reading, tears rolling...

Well, better than putting the cat in the washing machine. Cat survived, not yet clean though.

btw:
never knew why persil named itself after parsley (french)
And why spinneys chose a name so creepy (dutch)
