The Hi-Lex gnomes

It is Friday and Fridays are for fun. As is the tradition the Hi-Lex Gnomes marched in last week’s grand day winter carnival parade.  It seems that some parade-goers do not know what Hi-lex is. Hi-lex is/was is a bleach solution made right here in St. Paul Minnesota.

As near as I can figure the company was founded in the mid-1940s. I tried to find out if I could still buy Hi-lex but every time I looked for it I found Clorox. The Hi-Lex gnomes live at Westcott Station in St. Paul and appear in our Winter Carnival parades every year.

The gnomes are very photogenic.
