: : Does anyone remember the commercial phrase: "Lestoil makes Water Wetter?"
: : Any input on this?

: "There's less toil with Lestoil".

: I do remember the Water Wetter tag but can not associate it with Lestoil.

You didn't exactly ask, but the way you make water wetter is by using a wetting agent. It reduces surface tension, enabling the water to wet things more easily. It's not the same as a water softener, in case you wondered. SS
