The Pixie Sparkle story starts all the way back to the year 1959. Norman and Bernie Teitelbaum, who were brothers and veterans of World War II invented this creation while in the back of their Evanston, Illinois grocery store. They were attempting to create a floor wax. One of their friends from Leider Greenhouse in Morton Grove, Illinois asked if the product would remove the soot from oil heaters in the greenhouse from plant leaves. They tried it and found it worked and from this Pixie Sparkle was born.
