Summary

A commercial promoting Schicht's washing powder Radion and polishing cream Vim.

Synopsis

A young betrothed couple discusses the future family budget, but the discussion results in a dispute. The woman falls asleep and has a dream: a cuckoo from the clock comes to life and its call wakes up a box of washing powder, which precisely follows the instructions given on the packaging and finally dissolves in a pot filled with water to wash dirty laundry. A little box with polishing cream also comes to life and polish cutlery and other dirty things. All of a sudden, the washed laundry on a line splays a recipe for washing and polishing. The woman wakes up and the couple reconciles - they find out that their budget problem does not exist any longer. Later, the two boxes - the Radion washing powder and the Vim polishing cream - are part of the wedding lane approaching the altar where the couple marries.
