Fun Fact Friday: War Powder
Hey there Sea Spray fans, happy Fun Fact Friday! This week, we're getting historical again, going back to World War I. Did you know that the modern powdered laundry detergent that we use today originated in Germany during the First World War? When the Germans were entrenched in the war (both literally and figuratively), they were cut off from a supply of soap. German scientists began to experiment with synthetic cleaners in powder to counteract the soap shortage, and developed a powdered laundry cleaner. After the war, this powdered laundry detergent spread to the rest of the world, and became a household staple in the United States by the 1940's. At Sea Spray, we use similar powdered cleaners to get the toughest stains out of your clothes, even the ones that seem impossible to get out. To see us work our magic, give us a call, and see just how powerful powdered laundry detergent can be!
