The History ofPine-Sol

All Pine-Sol Product Bottles

From the simple green and yellow label your Grandma recognized, to the bright and cheerful look you see in your home today, the power of Pine-Sol® Cleaners last. Just after the start of the Great Depression in 1929, chemist Harry A. Cole found himself living in miles of pine forest near Jackson, Mississippi.

Mr. Cole long knew that pine oil was a natural disinfectant and deodorizer, so he rolled up his sleeves to create Pine-Sol® Brand Cleaner. In 1990, The Clorox Company acquired Pine-Sol® and set about innovating the formula and extending the line, with scented products that offer the same time-honored benefit of real clean.
