Indian webbing cleaners

These Indian-made webbing cleaners (from Stig Roadie’s collection) are very small and poorly made but follow the Pickering’s original style of raised lettering (unclear, possibly “SAME WHITE”) around the top edge and a well to ease mixing. They come wrapped in fancy coloured tissue paper and the product is white, buff or green.

These were sold for a while as an alternative to the scarce UK Blanco by the US reproduction militaria supplies company What Price Glory.
