Pine-Sol is a registered trade name of Clorox for a line of household cleaning products, used to clean grease and heavy soil stains.
Pine-Sol detergent was invented by Harry A. Cole in 1929. The Pine-Sol brand was acquired by Clorox from Shulton, Inc. in 1990. The cleaner is slightly acidic and used to remove bacteria from household surfaces.
Although the original Pine-Sol formulation is pine oil-based, not all cleaners sold under the Pine-Sol brand contain pine oil. As of 2008[update], the material safety data sheet for the "Original Pine-Sol Brand Cleaner 1" formulation lists 8–12% pine oil, 3-7% alkyl alcohol ethoxylates, 1-5% sodium petroleum sulfonate and 1-5% isopropyl alcohol. More recently, The Clorox Company's product line includes "Clorox Commercial Pine-Sol Brand Cleaner, with the same ingredients and concentrations as "Original Pine-Sol Brand Cleaner 1." Since January 2013, Clorox also makes a product called Original Pine-Sol Multi-Surface Cleaner which includes glycolic acid while lacking any pine oil.
