Our Story

More Than 100 Years of Making Everyday Life Better, Every day.

Bringing the cleaning and disinfecting power of bleach to the world. Helping out in wartime and natural disasters. Investing time and energy in our communities. And bringing hundreds of products to life that make everyday life better every day — there are literally thousands of ways The Clorox Company has earned the trust and respect of people everywhere since we opened our doors in 1913.

We’ve showcased some of our historical milestones both great and small to help you see how our company — which celebrated its 100-year anniversary in 2013 — continues to touch people every day.


Few companies survive a century and fewer still have made significant contributions as ours.
