Teepol supports Cooking With Heroes

We are very, very proud to be one of the patrons of the new book 'Cooking With Heroes' commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Royal British Legion.

Teepol and the Trafalgar Square Foam Incident

Our roots date back to World War Two and the first 'Teepol' detergent that was used by the armed forces. When we were invited to become a patron of the book and to appear in it, we accepted immediately. We love the history and people it reflects on, and we look forward to trying out the recipes! Among the images we put forward for inclusion is a very old black and white press photo of Trafalgar Square in a sea of foam created when a group of soldiers decided the fountain would be livened up by adding Teepol detergent.
