Description
Blue glass bottle with a plastic red screw-on cap. Label is off-white with red and black text. The front reads: "Mrs. Stewart's / Whiter Washing Easier Too! / Ten Fl.

History Of Use
White fabric turns yellow or gray with age and repeated washings. Bluing counteracts these ugly shades by adding a blue-whiteness to make them snow-white. (Information from the label)

Description
A heavy, brass-colored metal package sealer. The long, narrow body is cast in one piece, including the small feet protruding at the four corners. The back section is designed to hold a roll of tape. The front section is a rectangular reservoir designed to hold water and a brush. The sides of the sealer are similar; there is a stylized design in gold outlined with black on the back section. The front section has an orange rectangle with 'Jubilee' enclosed in a diamond design at the center. It also has 'Made in Canada', 'Packaged Sealer', 'Western Sales Book Co. Ltd.', 'Winnipeg, Man.', and 'Vancouver, B.C.' in black print.
History Of Use
How it works: put water in the metal part and brush gets wet, then you pull the tape like material over the brush and it gets wet. Then the tape material gets sticky and you can use it to stick on loaves of baked goods.
