Prod uct Description & History :
Lan O Sheen was trademarked in 1943 and became popular in the mid-1950s until the late 1960s.
I found records of selling for 37 cents a box in 1955.
The boxes themselves so not have a creation date but this box sold for 47 cents (see photo 4).
The back of the box lists all the uses (and how to use for each item/surface) for Lan-O-Sheen, which is quite extensive (and I found some descriptions humorous). Such uses included:
For Removing Ink, Soot, Grease, Dust and Dirt, For a Cleaning Compound Having Incidental Water Softening Properties, But Not Including Bar Soap
Cleaning Powder For Rugs, Upholstery, Drapery, Clothing, Silks, Woolens, Woodwork, Painted Surfaces, Tile Linoleum, Silverware, Dishes, Washing Machines, Vitreous Enamel, Lamp Shades, Sweaters, Woolen Blankets, Leather, Leatherette, Snow Suits, Baby Togs, Diapers, Girdles, Stockings, Lingerie
