So Long, Mr. Clean

October 2, 2008 / Posted by:

House Peters Jr., the original Mr. Clean, passed away yesterday in Los Angeles at the age of 92 from natural causes.

House starred as the first real-life Mr. Clean in commercials that ran in the late 1950s to the early 1960s. He also did a bunch of stuff including episodes of “Perry Mason,” “Lassie” and “Gunsmoke.

I couldn’t find a picture of House as Mr. Clean, so here he is looking Mr. Clean-ish as Shark Man in “Flash Gordon.”

I have an old bottle of Mr. Clean under my sink that I will bring out and use to clean my bathroom with today. I stopped using it a couple of months ago, because my dumb ass mixed it with bleach and I haven’t been the same after inhaling that shit. But I will fight through the fumes in honor of House!

Rest in peace, House. Heaven will be extra clean today. Below is a Mr. Clean commercial from the 50s. The Mr. Clean cartoon was based on House. Mr Clean! Mr. Clean!
