About Us

Jeyes is the Nº1 brand in Outdoor Disinfection* with over 140 years of history. We were founded in 1877 by John Jeyes, a chemist by trade, in the town of Northampton. Since then we’ve developed a long history of keeping the nation protected from hidden nasties and making outdoor spaces safe for all the family.

Trusted by generations, Jeyes Fluid continues to be the biggest selling outdoor disinfectant.
