Default Fleecy White Bottle

I don't usually find a lot of bottles, just a few in the creeks now and then when the ground is too frozen to detect. I had to clean out one of our culverts today after a heavy rain, and my wife was standing on top of the culvert as I was pulling the debris away. She noticed this bottle, and said it looked kind of old. I was surprised at the nice condition it was in. It is Fleecy White 1 quart bleach bottle. On the bottom it has The John Puhl Products CO Chicago Ill. It is a cork top bottle, and it looks like the cork is broken off in the opening. I thought it was pretty cool to find. Just a quick look online indicates it is from the 30's or 40's, but I am definitely not an expert on bottles so I could be wrong.

Good find, old bleach bottle. They don't make them like that anymore.

At least it's not the VERY common 50's-60's ones with the screwtop. Or those ubiquitous Clorox or Linco's.

LOL. Yeah I had never even heard of Fleecy White until this one.

Thanks! I agree, I find a lot of broken or chipped bottles, we were lucky to find this one.

I listen to old radio shows from the 40s-50s and there are ads for Fleecy White. They have a slogan "Fleecy-White!----Fleecy White!" similar to "Bob-O-Link! --Bob-O-Link!".
