History

Innovation is an old idea at Brooklyn Products. In 1951, founder Carl Linenfelser had an idea for a new product. Carl thought why not infuse heavy-duty cleaning solution into ordinary household sponges? It was a concept that would make the most common household chores faster and easier. Though others had tried before, Linenfelser experimented with many different raw materials and processes. Eventually, with the help of the family oven, he created Chem-O-Cel, a pre-soaped sponge that would soon be widely found in kitchens of today.
