Within 5 days make 5 copies of this card
and send it to five of your friends. Send a
 wash rag to both names above.  Leave off
the top name and add yours to the
bottom.  In this manner you will
receive  30 wash rags immediately instead
of waiting till your name reaches the
top.  Do not break this chain as it is fun
to see where they come from.
