About Ajax (cleaning product)

Ajax is a brand of cleaning products, introduced by Colgate-Palmolive in 1947 for a powdered household and industrial cleaner. It was one of the company's first major brands. The Ajax name was successfully transferred to an entire line of household cleaning products and detergents; the line enjoyed its greatest success in the 1960s and early 70s. Ajax All-Purpose Cleaner with Ammonia, introduced in 1962, was the first major competitor to Mr. Clean, which Procter and Gamble debuted in 1958. Ajax' success as the so-called 'White Tornado' forced Procter and Gamble to introduce its own ammoniated cleaner, Top Job, in 1963.
