The Laundry Detergent and Misunderstandings

The cleaning power of laundry detergent mainly depends on the following:

Nowadays, laundry detergent has gradually become the first choice when it comes to laundry, for many households. For laundry detergent, people have misunderstandings: some people think that the more foam the laundry detergent produces during the washing process, the higher the cleaning power; some people think that the thicker the laundry detergent, the stronger the cleaning power; The more the liquid is used, the cleaner the laundry will be… Is the cleaning power of laundry detergent determined by these? Not!

Three misunderstandings about the cleaning power of laundry detergent

 1. The more foam, the best cleaner?

During the washing process, the generated foam can only indicate the strong foaming ability of the laundry detergent but does not mean that the cleaning ability is strong.

Machine-washed products have too much foam, which may cause problems such as foam overflow from the washing machine and difficulty in rinsing, which is not conducive to the washing of clothes.

As the concept of energy-saving and emission reduction is deeply rooted in the hearts of the people, low-foaming detergents have become a development direction in the washing industry. The current international trend is to popularize non-foaming and low-foaming detergents.

2. The thicker laundry detergent, is clean fast?

The viscosity of the laundry liquid is not equal to the concentration. The viscosity mainly refers to the thickness and thinness of the laundry liquid, and the concentration represents the active content of the laundry liquid. Therefore, the viscosity of the laundry liquid is not directly related to its detergency ability. The higher the viscosity of the laundry liquid does not mean its cleaning power is stronger.

3. The more dosage, is it good laundry washing?

Consumers tend to have the mentality that adding a little more detergent can wash more cleanly during the laundry process, but adding too much detergent may result in waste of detergent on the one hand and excessive foam and difficulty in rinsing on the other hand. Wait for the problem, but it is not clean.

What is the cleaning power of laundry detergent?

The active ingredients of laundry detergent are mainly surface-active substances, which have strong decontamination ability and can penetrate deep into the interior of clothing fibers to play a washing role.

There are differences in the content of active substances in the detergents on the market. According to the standard QB/T 1224-2012 “Liquid Detergents for Clothing” and “Technical Specifications for Concentrated Detergent Marked Products (Liquid Detergents for Clothing)”, ordinary type The active substance content of the laundry liquid needs to be ≥15%, the active substance content of the concentrated laundry liquid needs to be ≥25%, and the active substance content of the “concentrated +” laundry liquid needs to be ≥45%.

Generally, the higher the total actives content and the higher the concentration in the detergent, the better the stain removal effect. When consumers buy detergent, it is recommended to choose one that meets relevant standards, preferably an option with “concentrated” and “concentrated +” logos.

In addition to surfactants, adding auxiliaries such as active biological enzymes to laundry liquids can also enhance the washing effect of laundry liquids to a certain extent. For example, by adding protease and amylase to laundry detergent, protease can decompose protein and can easily remove special stains such as milk stains and sweat stains, while amylase can decompose starch stains on clothes, such as oatmeal, rice porridge, noodles, and other stains.

The synergistic effect of the two enzymes can play a good decontamination effect. [1] Take Lisnor saffron stain removal and antibacterial laundry detergent as an example. This laundry detergent uses “enzyme stain removal technology” to upgrade the compound formula. It uses high-energy cleaning factors and multiple active enzymes to directionally remove protein and starch stains. It can effectively improve the cleaning power of laundry detergent and prevent clothes from yellowing.

Anti-stain redeposition technology applied to laundry detergent also helps to improve the cleaning power of laundry detergent. The so-called “anti-redeposition” refers to the inhibition of the re-deposition of washed soil particles to the fabric fibers during the washing process. Due to its unique molecular structure, the anti-redeposition agent can surround the dirt particles and make them dispersed and suspended in water, thereby preventing the washed stains from attaching to the clothes again, and preventing the clothes from graying and becoming old after multiple washing.

“ The cleaning power of laundry detergent cannot be judged simply from the perspective of the richness of foam, consistency, and amount of use. The cleaning power is related to multiple factors. impact on cleanliness.”
