The Works®

Our History


Beginning over 50 years ago in a garage in Waterloo, Indiana, The Works quickly became a household name with its exceptional performance on the stains created by the hard water conditions in Indiana and neighboring areas. Back then, products were packaged in any empty bottle that was available and products were distributed from the trunk of a car, selling door-to-door in the northeastern Indiana communities.

The excitement spread and a reputation was born. The heart of The Works' success is a friend telling a friend telling a friend about the products, and, now, more than 50 years later, the Works is a thriving brand of household cleaning products sold in many parts of the United States.

Our attention to quality, our dedicated employees, and our great relationships with loyal customers, all allow us to grow our brand, selling quality products at value pricing!
