5 This is the way we wash our hands 1944 E.I. du Pont de Nemours & Company (originator) To make a test of the new salt water soap developed for the Army say Louise Feldman left, and Frances Montgomery, chemists in the DuPont Technical Laboratory at Deepwater Point, New Jersey. Miss Montgomery, using the new soap khaki colored for camouflage, got the heavy fuel oil off her hand quicker and more easily that Miss Feldman who used ordinary soap. Secret of the new soap's success is a special synthetic detergent, know n only as MP-646, developed by DuPont chemists. Both the laboratory...

To make a test of the new salt water soap developed for the Army say Louise Feldman left, and Frances Montgomery, chemists in the DuPont Technical Laboratory at Deepwater Point, New Jersey. Miss Montgomery, using the new soap khaki colored for camouflage, got the heavy fuel oil off her hand quicker and more easily that Miss Feldman who used ordinary soap. Secret of the new soap's success is a special synthetic detergent, know n only as MP-646, developed by DuPont chemists. Both the laboratory basins contain salt water, often the only kid available to soldiers for bathing and laundry in some theaters of war.
