    Toilet cream is how I have always kept my skin soft and manageable. Actually not so much. Apparently toilet cream was a more attractive name in the long ago. This product first appeared in 1906 back when I believe the toilet was the bathroom as opposed to the bathroom bowl. I recall old commercials always called it the bathroom bowl instead of a toilet.
    The company was E. C. DeWitt and Co. Inc. Companies had long and distinguished names back then.
    The price of this is 25 cents which is printed on the label which made stocking the shelves a bit easier. If I could figure out when something like this would cost a quarter I could figure out when it was made. It has a screw off cap so this would not be an early bottle. My guess is 50 75 years old.

      Interesting find. I'm guessing that's also where the term "Toilet Water" came from as well in reference to cologne or perfume.

      Oh MY MY MY, but the myriad of...ummm..."potential purposes" of such a little bottle of 'stuff' could be, when its label is read with a more modern mindset and noting the complete lack of any clue towards its usage or ingredients...?

      ['ya want me to put that on my WHAT, WHERE??? oh, H*LL NO...]
