It's a good thing I wasn't married in the 50s/60s. I would NOT have done well.

Thank the lord for feminism. I want to laugh, but I can't help feeling depressed...this was published on 50 some odd years ago...

I do think there's something to be said for making your home a comfortable place to come home to...but it's something John and I do TOGETHER...LOL!!!

I love doing things for my hubby, and he loves helping me out too. That's what makes our marriage so great.

(I too am glad that I was not a housewife of the 50s!!!)

OK ladies, be prepared to be grossed out: Lysol was used as a douche to prevent pregnancy (among other things). I kid you not. Read on:

In the late 1920s Lysol disinfectant began being marketed by maker Lysol, Incorporated and distributor Lehn & Fink, Inc. as a feminine hygiene product. They intimated that vaginal douching with a Lysol solution prevented infections and vaginal odor, and thereby preserved marital bliss[7]. This Lysol solution was also used as a birth control agent, as post-coital douching was a popular method of preventing pregnancy at that time. The use of Lysol was later discouraged by the medical community as it tended to eliminate the bacteria normal to the healthy vagina, thus allowing more robust, health-threatening bacteria to thrive, and may have masked more serious problems that certain odors indicated in the first place.[8] All the same, Joseph De Lee, a prominent American obstetrician who held great sway over American obstetric practice through his writings, encouraged the use of Lysol during labor. "...[J]ust before introducing the hand, the vagina is liberally flushed with 1 per cent lysol solution squeezed from pledgets of cotton, the idea being to reduce the amount of infections matter unavoidably carried into the puerperal wounds and up into the uterus by the manipulations." [9]

In the US, from around 1930 to 1960, vaginal douching with a Lysol disinfectant solution was the most popular form of birth control.[10] US marketing ads printed testimonials from European "doctors" touting its safety and effectiveness. The American Medical Association later investigated these claims. They were unable to locate the cited "experts" and found that Lysol was not effective as a contraceptive.[10]

Can you imagine??? Between things like this and how women were portrayed in ads, no wonder women revolted in the 1960s. To quote an old Virginia Slims commercial, "You've come a long way baby!" Thank goodness. :/

A year or so ago I posted some links to old Lysol-douche ads on another thread. Maybe back then the Lysol formula was gentler and was reasonably safe to use as a topical antiseptic (as some of the ads suggested, ETA 06.24 and mizski's source specifies "1% lysol solution" which is pretty dilute), but I WOULD DEFINITELY NOT TRY THAT WITH TODAY'S LYSOL! ::wishes there was a skull-and-xbones smiley::

ETA 06.23: Issues of using household cleaners for fem hygiene aside, didn't it occur to anybody (including me: get the wet lo-carb noodle and give me 20 lashes) to run this how-to-be-a-good-wife thingie by our friends @ Snopes? (Hint, it's accurate in the 50s attitudes it reflects, but its supposed source can't be traced, something like those "Granny's washday receet" or "Instructions for teachers 1872" lists)

Oh, don't even get me started on the Good Wife's guide!!!!

I was reading part of the Good Man's guide and cackled so loudly now I'm going to have to let Hubby read them both!!! Plus the Lysol just to gross him out! {me too!}

On the plus side of the Good Wifes guide, I don't work and Hubby does. He often tells me how nice it is for me {and the dog!} to greet him at the door when he gets home. Awww!

douching in general is a terrible idea. part of the Good Man's Guide should say, "You don't want to deal with girl smells? Clean your balls."

Unfortunately, there are many who still believe in this ancient, outdated, poppycock!
