Are you a collector of oil cans and old tools? Love that old service station garage stuff? Then this block of original BRILLO SOAP is a collectible you need in that eclectic collection! Brillo soap was the popular hand-washing soap of mechanics and workmen who needed a tough, strong soap to get motor oil, paints and solvents from their hands -- and it surely worked powerfully well!

This crusty, crackled, discolored piece of vintage memorabilia measures 3 inches high, 2-7/8 inches wide, and is 7/8ths inches thick. One the front side it says "Brillo Mfg. Co., New York U.S.A." and on the other side, "Brillo, Pat. U.S.A." with a small diamond symbol underneath. On both sides the messages are imprinted into the soap. It feels soapy, and has only a very faint odor of its "soap-ness"!

I'm certain that if someone were to run this under water, the true deep crimson color would appear once more. However, I do not clean or polish or otherwise interfere with the original aged patina of my vintage items. That, I leave up to its new owner -- to clean, or not!
