3 Black-Owned Toilet Paper, Mouthwash, & Laundry Brands

Typically, we don't give much thought to who is the owner of the companies that produce the products we use. From toothpaste to mouthwash, soap to laundry detergent, bathroom products, & all the other products we use on a daily basis, all are made by companies that were started by entrepreneurs with an idea to solve a problem or make life a little easier. And guess what? Some of these entrepreneurs are African-American.

Here are three Black-owned companies that make common household products that we use every day:
