  • Jeyes Fluid /ˈdʒeɪz/ is a brand of disinfectant fluid made by Jeyes Group Ltd. in Thetford, Norfolk, England. It is for outdoor use only. Patented by John Jeyes in 1877 the product was granted a Royal Warrant to the British Royal Family in 1896, and continues to supply the Royal household to this day. Jeyes Group had an exclusive licence to sell the following brands into the UK professional cleaning market until it sold the professional division to Selden Research Ltd: * Palmolive * Carex * Imperial Leather * Ajax Historically Jeyes Fluid has also been used in medical treatments, as quoted by Dr. William Robert Woodman in the British Medical Journal (1888, Vol 2): Dr. Woodman drew special attention to the scarlet fever cases treated in hospital, and pointed out that the whole of the deaths among them occurred in 1877. From 1877 to December 31st 1887, 241 cases of scarlet fever were treated by the medical officers at the sanatorium without a death." Since 1877 Dr. Woodman's patients were given frequent warm baths with some Jeyes' Fluid added. This proved significant in the treatment of scarlet fever and the prevention of dropsy, which usually followed. For the first time in its 130 years, Jeyes Fluid appeared on television screens with a £500,000 advertising campaign that was aired in the UK over the Easter bank holiday in 2011. This campaign was to widen the appeal of the brand, remind consumers of its versatility, and introduce the product to a new generation. (en)
