Little dab'll do ya?... (25.53)

Man: How much do I use? 

Hall: Not much. Just trace amounts. That's all that's in there.

Man: It's like Brylcreem, then. Little dab'll do ya?

Hall: Just trace amounts on my signal.

‘A little dab’ll do ya’ was a famous 1950’s advertising slogan for Brylcreem, a British brand of hair styling products for men. The first Brylcreem product was a hair cream created in 1928, by County Chemicals at the Chemico Works in Bradford Street, Birmingham, England. The cream is an emulsion of water and mineral oil stabilised with beeswax.
