FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – A star was born on social media, all thanks to a jug of bleach. Manager of the Fort Wayne Mastodons, Brian Blackwell became an online hit when he was spotted on the court after the big win against IU drinking from a Clorox bleach bottle.
Through the years, other styles of Clorox bleach bottles were considered by The Clorox Company. None of these ever reached full national distribution because they failed to meet Clorox’s exacting packaging standards.
Because people frequently write The Clorox Company asking the vintage of old Clorox liquid bleach bottles they’ve acquired, this online guide has been prepared to help collectors determine the approximate age of different Clorox bottles used over the years.
Blackwell, who was actually drinking water, found the idea of drinking from a bleach bottle funny and wanted to prank people. He has since been interviewed by ESPN and gained nearly 800 new followers.
