Bon Ami – Tried and True

by Sunrise Cleaning on September 28, 2011

Childs and Albert Erickson created the chick as a symbol and “Hasn’t scratched yet” as the slogan in 1901–chosen because Bon Ami does not scratch hard surfaces and chicks do not scratch for food for two or three days after hatching.

In the 117 years since its creation, Bon Ami has enjoyed a rich history of ads, posters and packaging that are largely preserved today, along with the original formula. Bon Ami packaging, advertisemets and memorabilia have become popular with collectors and are found online. Historical Bon Ami products are also featured online at The American Package Museum, along with other interesting products that our great-grandparents would have seen at the local store.

We are very happy with Bon Ami because it does so much, very simply.

Sprinkle it on a wet cloth or sponge, or on the moistened surface to be cleaned. Rub, then rinse and wipe dry. Use it for cleaning and polishing windows, mirrors, porcelain and stainless steel sinks, tubs & showers, pots and pans, painted surfaces, tile, aluminum, white shoes etc. and many other hard surfaces around your home and garage Bon Ami’s unique ingredients remove dried on splatters and spills, burned-on grease, baked-on food and sticky messes. Bon Ami works great on windows and mirrors, and is recommended by car manufacturers for cleaning windshields.

Environmentally sensitive people prefer it because it contains no chlorine, perfumes, dyes or phosphates. The packaging contains an excess of 75% recycled material.
