It seems that there was a new fear that employers in the United States had to look out for – the possibility that their rough, ineffective paper towels were creating Bolsheviks. In this actual Scott Tissue advertisement for their new ScotTissue paper towels, the company emphasizes the importance of quality paper towels in preventing the spread of communism. This advertisement ran in the 1920s when the first Red Scare was sweeping the country.
Is your washroom breeding Bolsheviks?
Employees lose respect for a company that fails to provide decent facilities for their comfort
Try wiping your hands six days a week on harsh, cheap paper towels or awkward, unsanitary roller towels – and maybe you, too, would grumble.
Towel service is just one of those small but important courtesies – such as proper air and lighting – that help build up the goodwill of your employees.
That’s why you’ll find clothlike ScotTissue Towels in the washrooms of large well-run organizations such as R.C.A., Victor Co., Inc., National Lead Co. and Campbell Soup Co.
ScotTissue Towels are made of “thirsty fibre [sic]” . . . an amazing cellulose product that drinks up moisture 12 times as fast as ordinary paper towel. They feel soft and pliant as a linen towel. Yet they’re so strong and tough in texture they won’t crumble or go to pieces . . . even when they’re wet.
And they cost less, too – because one is enough to dry the hands – instead of three or four.
