Wash Your Mouth Out Afterwards

Another name that (I would think) would have been bad for business, but I guess  not:

Art deco Eau de Suez dentifrice poster with huge female head and sparkling white teeth
I understand from Google that this was a popular toothpaste. What clean teeth have to do with water from the Suez Canal, I have no idea. Maybe it's just turn-of-the-century exoticization of all things Egyptian?

Nice poster, though.

Seen at Salut, Grand Avenue, Saint Paul
