 It may be difficult to read, but the ad copy states: "Mayonnaise doesn't stand a chance."

Generally, I would root for the guys in white.  In this case, nope.  Rotton mayo is one of the most disgusting smells on the planet.  And I, for one, am glad to have an army the size of Tide 2X Ultra fighting on my side.

Cleaning Ad #9: Veja X-14

Okay, there's something lost in the translation here.  The ad copy reads: "Do not play with your kids at the vacations.  Yes that's dirty."

What?  Now my dirty little mind can read all sorts of things into this line.  Not to mention the plural "vacations."  Again... what?

It's too bad that the ad copy blows.  The actual visual is quite inventive and fun.

Cleaning Ad #10: Tekna Cleaning Machines

And a new superhero is born: Wash Man!  Up and away!!!And a new superhero is born: Wash Man! Up and away!!!

Egad.  It's like a pocket fire hose!  Great ad.  Gets the point across quite well.  I gotta wonder if one of these things would put my pressure washer to shame...

BONUS Cleaning Ad: Alka Seltzer

Yeah, I know.  Alka Seltzer isn't specifically a cleaning material.

But we've all had mornings like this.
