Asa Eldredge, my grandfather and medic in World War I, wanted a way to sterilize bandages. He and his brothers started the Hilex bleach company in St. Paul. At the height of Hilex popularity, the Hi and Lex gnomes, shaped like bleach drops, walked in parades. Grampa kept them in his garage. Now there are many sanitizing products and companies.
