Phyllis Diller knows a lot about Carpet Cleaning

In this mid-eighties commercial for Cleanol Carpet Cleaners, Phyllis Diller, sporting a bright yellow ensemble talks about the benefits of using Cleanol. I was surprised to see a talent of Diller’s caliber doing a “local” commercial, but I guess I should not make any assumptions about how “Local” something is, since I do not know anything about Cleanol.

It turns out even after all these years the company still exists and it appears to be still based out of Toronto.
