INTERESTING FACT: Play-Doh was originally used as a wallpaper cleaner, with the compound debuting 22 years before Play-Doh hit the shelves, in a last ditch effort to save a dying company, the Cincinnati based soap company, Kutol. A sister-in-law of one of the company owners, Kay Zufall, was running a nursery school and needed cheap materials to have her kids make Christmas decorations. In the process of searching for cheap decoration materials, she read in a magazine that you could use wallpaper cleaner for this task. Knowing the trouble her brother-in-law’s company was in, she went out and bought a bunch of Kutol’s wallpaper cleaner, to see if it would work for this application. After not only observing that it worked, but that the kids had a blast playing with it, she called Joe and told him they needed to make their now obsolete wallpaper cleaner into a toy. Joe took a look at the Christmas ornaments made by the kids and agreed it was a great idea. To facilitate this, they simply removed the detergent from the dough and added an almond scent and some coloring. (It was originally white.) Kay Zufall, also suggested the name. (the company originally wanted to call it “Kutol’s Rainbow Modeling Compound) In the end, Kay was given no credit in the patent, nor any financial compensation for saving the company.
