The beginnings of Clorox bleach and the company date back to 2013 when 5 entrepreneurs invested $100 each to set up the first commercial sale of liquid bleach. The company was originally called Electro-Alkaline Company. At this time, the public was unaware of what liquid bleach was and was slow to gain traction among the consumer. However, with a change of leadership 1916 the company began to grow and was able to survive the Great Depression. However during World War II, the company faced a roadblock as one of the products main ingredients was being rationed, under government orders. This meant that the company had the option to reduce the concentration of this ingredient in their products and ultimately diluting them with water. Clorox, however, refused to do so and instead chose to sell fewer units of the full strength product. This decision helped establish the company with a reputation for quality that is still seen today through all lines of home goods and wellness products sold.
