The ’70s and ’80s were known for big hair (I had a Dorothy Hamill bob myself). How do you clean hair of that magnitude? Dishwashing detergent? Woolite? Fire? I remember the jingle of the day telling us how on AM radio:
The juice of one whole lemon
One whole lemon sets you free …
That’s what we got in every bright yellow bottle of
Lemon Up and make peace with grease
Yeah, Lemon Up sets you free
From this greasy little world, hey hey …
Surprisingly, Lemon Up is still available at the Vermont Country Store. It’s been marked up to $14.95, but I might buy some anyway. Come Friday, our little world is going to get a whole lot greasier.
