Scrubbing Bubble Still Bank

This ceramic still bank takes the form of the anthropomorphized “Scrubbing Bubble” for the SC Johnson cleaning product of the same name. “Scrubbing Bubbles” were first introduced as a spokes characters for Dow Chemical Company’s Bathroom Cleaner during the 1970s. The Scrubbing Bubbles were used in both print and television advertising, often with the tagline that “the scrubbing bubbles work hard so you don’t have to.” When SC Johnson acquired Dow Brands businesses in 1998, they capitalized on the popularity of the spokes character by renaming the cleaner “Scrubbing Bubbles.”
