Our Mission: “As a socially responsible company, Sunshine Makers, Inc. is committed to being the worldwide market leader, providing high quality, environmentally safer cleaning products.”
The Simple Green® story began over thirty years ago, long before “environmentally friendly” products were mandated by law. Bruce FaBrizio and his father developed a safer alternative to the toxic cleaners then being used to remove tannic acid, a by-product of coffee roasting, from roasting machinery. It took three years to perfect the biodegradable, not-toxic, non-flammable, non-abrasive formula. After its initial success, Bruce began selling Simple Green to automotive and industrial customers in 55-gallon drums; which he delivered in his van, for use as a cleaner on equipment and floors.
In 1979, just as initial retail marketing efforts were beginning to pay off, Bruce’s father died. Bruce managed to keep the business alive and in 1981 gave his company the name it continues to carry — Sunshine Makers, Inc. Simple Green was then introduced nationally into several new markets including Hardware/Do It Yourself, consumer grocery & drug, GSA (government) and Club-Store classes of trade. In the early 1990s, Bruce created the Environmental Technology Division within his company in order to define the cutting edge of today’s cleaning solutions and solidify his company’s high standards for environmental responsibility.
Today, over 3 million dollars have been spent to prove the safety and efficacy claims of Simple Green. Sunshine Makers, Inc. is still owned and operated by Bruce P. FaBrizio. Bruce lives in Corona Del Mar, California with his wife Viviana and their happy family of five pampered pooches.

My husband was utterly thrilled to see Simple Green here at our house. He uses it frequently at work and says it works great, so I wanted to try it out for myself. Simple Green sent me the All-Purpose Cleaner to try and a dilution bottle to mix it with water. Depending on the amount of grease and grime you need to clean, you decide the potency. I made up a “general strength” cleaning solution and decided to tackle a greasy counter top that I had been previously ignoring. We live in an old farmhouse and the kitchen has yet to be remodeled. Yuk, is how I’d describe the entire kitchen on its best of days.
So below, you can see how the Simple Green did. I sprayed it and let it sit for a couple of minutes and then wiped it with a paper towel. Wallah! Like magic, the grime disappeared! I am very impressed by the cleaning capabilities of this product and I’m sure with my husband remodeling a 1965 Ford Mustang in our barn, there will be plenty more greasy situations to use this on.
Definitely, a cleaning product to have on hand, because you just never know when a large, messy mess will arise!
