When Bon Ami was first created, household cleaners came in bars – or cakes as we call them. Bon Ami’s innovation in 1886 was to make a more gentle cleaning cake that used feldspar to polish away dirt and stains. American homemakers loved it.
But after the chemical revolution in the mid-twentieth century, the simple cleaning cake fell out of favor. A generation of American homemakers grew up not knowing about the Bon Ami Cleaning Cake. Yet we hear this same generation calling for more thoughtful cleaning products with smaller carbon footprints and better cleaning abilities.
We hear you.
In celebration of our 125th Anniversary year, Bon Ami is again offering our tried and true 1886 Formula Cleaning Cake.
