Cabbage and blocks of ice cream were some of the items found in the larder. The ice cream was either served in bowls as a pudding after lunch or dinner, usually with tinned fruit cocktail, or cut into smaller blocks and sandwiched between wafers for eating rather like a choc-ice. Brillo pads were used to clean pans if needed, and Fairy Snow washing powder for the weekly wash, leaving the most amazing and comforting homely old fashioned soapy smell on the pure white cotton sheets on my bed.

I still use Brillo - the real stuff, not the cheaper versions which go rusty very quickly. This is real memory jogging stuff, Johnny. Does anyone remember the round tins of Cadbury's drinking chocolate which had a pretty blue paper with small pictures and stars on it?

We had what I thought was ghastly Palm olive green soap ! Then Shield came out, in that marbled bar and I LOVED that.And anyone remeber that shampoo that smelt of fresh mown grass, it was always promoted in my sisters girls mags like 'Oh Boy'. Oh then much later when I left home at 18, Victoria Principle advertised a shampoo and conditioner range which we all went mad for, and when Vidal Sassoon three step, shampoo, condition, and rinse came out I had those, loved them, smelt strongly of almonds and left my long teenage tresses looking as shiny as glass ! Ha Ha..

Remember these, my mum used to buy the bars of lifebuoy soap it was.ghastly.

We had Lifebuoy too & Sunlight soap for floor scrubbing! My mother only used Roger & Gallet Carnation soap for the rest of her life once the war ended & things were more available.
