Most important with maintenance products is to minimize on the burden of cleaning. Your home full of shining furniture is just a whistle away with Ça-va-seul. Cleaning with Hoover appliances goes so fast, the brand and free time are almost synonymous. Speed and convenience is one thing, but we want the place spotless after the mopping. Vigor answers this requirement: it will dash away every blot (no '+', 'extra' nor 'vitamins' needed).

This wall carries two brands: Crème Eclipse and Lumière.

The painting is for the bigger part hidden behind some evergreen plants. The advertisement-researcher, however, has at least one thing in common with the mill-scientist (Mills in Aragón): no shrub can stop him. And that's how he brought the fine sunny face to the light. You'll find another extremely well done face at the Vermouth page.

or: maintenance products
 
Ça-va-seul Ça-va-seul
Ça-va-seul was born in Diksmuide (Belgium) when G. Bouquey experimented with cleaning products and shoe wax. That was in the 1880s. In the 1920's production moved to Vilvoorde (near Brussels) and a second plant some years later in the North of France. After several take-overs the brand eventually became Reckitt Benckiser's in 2001 and production moved to France.
