Encyclopedic?[edit]

The PD sheet warnings do not seem encyclopedic to me. -- Phuongj 02:24, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

Yeah, I removed that. Pasting data sheets into an encyclopedia article isn't appropriate. --Delirium 02:16, 26 December 2006 (UTC)
Is it appropriate to write articles on individual, branded products at all? Would this information not be more appropriate in a generic article on powdered cleansers? 71.198.65.9 00:47, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
"Floats the dirt, right down the drain/Bum-Bum-Bum-Bum-Bum-Bum-Bum". Is it just me or does anyone else get irrationally happy that there's a wikipedia entry with the phrase "Bum-Bum-Bum-Bum-Bum-Bum-Bum" in it. stib (talk) 03:06, 27 October 2010 (UTC)
As the jingle's only claim to notability was being the first TV jingle, and this was tagged as uncited for 19 months, I removed it. - Fayenatic (talk) 17:05, 27 April 2011 (UTC)

Cut speculative line[edit]

Removed this line:

The name Ajax may also reference an old British name for toilet, "the jakes".[1]

  1. ^ If Walls Could Talk, BBC Four documentary programme, 9 p.m., 20 April 2011. Looking at the evolution of the British bathroom down the years, Dr Lucy Worsley stated that the name 'Ajax' derived from "the jakes".

The statement appears at 19 minutes into the program, which is on the web at http://www.dailymotion.com/video/k71HE5b6Ftsd4o3ry91 . However, the speaker was not discussing the cleaning product; rather the topic was a Tudor-era flush toilet. --Bistropha (talk) 04:32, 28 July 2016 (UTC)
