House Peters Jr., a television actor who was the original Mr. Clean for Procter and Gamble, died Wednesday at the age of 92.
In the 1950s and 1960s, Peters Jr. played the bald-headed, hoop-earring wearing, grime-fighting Mr. Clean to advertise the household cleaner with the trademark jingle, “Mr. Clean, Mr. Clean. Mr. Clean gets rid of dirt and grime and grease in just a minute, Mr. Clean will clean your whole house and everything that’s in it. Mr. Clean Mr. Clean. Mr. Clean.”
The animated version of the Mr. Clean image is still used today.
