Dishwashing Detergent: How much is enough? Conserve Water; Reduce Chemical Waste and Save Money.

Water problem addressed: Too little

Summary: Surfactants are known to be harmful to the environment but its usage cannot be totally eliminated. This project determines the minimum effective concentration of surfactants that exhibits required detergency effect, reducing surfactants used. Dishwashing detergent was used as the study model. Dishwashing detergents at critical micelle concentrations (CMC) levels were found to exhibit excellent degreasing effect. Finally, an education card was devised to educate consumers on appropriate amounts of detergent required, thereby conserving water, reducing wastewater and saving money.
