Soaps and Detergents

Parent Category: Cleaning
Soaps and detergents help clean everything from dirty hands to soiled laundry. Ask questions about their chemical properties and uses around the house.
It depends upon several factors: a) The size of the load (the larger the load, the more detergentwill be required) b) How dirty the load is (the more dirty, the more detergent islikely to be needed) c) How hard your water is (the harder the water, the more detergentis likely to be needed) d) The...

This is a soap used in the aid of skin lightening
Bubble, and foam are just a result of the chemical and physical  reaction between the detergent and water, while shaken.   Typically, the bubbles are proportionate to the concentration of  detergent, but not always so. Some bubble up more, some less.   In short, the amount of bubbles isn't a...
  == Answer ==   There is no chemical reaction.  Lathering is just air bubbles getting trapped inside the liquid.  Soap has a high surface tension, and so if you introduce air bubbles inside it, they tend to stay for a while (unlike water for instance, where the air bubble won't...
Well it really depends what plant and detergent in reference. Some detergents can actually be used to fight and kill off pest of plants and some can not. A prime example of a particular type of detergent that can be made and diluted with water is dish soap of any kind to spray the leaves, stems and...
In 1933, this discovery was introduced in a detergent called dreft but it could only handle lightly soiled jobs. The next goal was to create a detergent that could clean heavily soiled clothes. That detergent was Tide®.
Detergent contains surfactants and salts which help to dissolve  dirt and oil from the materials being cleaned.

Hypoallergenic soap is soap that is made wihout certain ingredients, which would otherwise create an allergic reaction. Hypoallergenic means "less likely to cause an allergic reaction when used." (candleandsoup.about.com)
They are alike in their chemical properties.Answer 2:They are both surfactants, with molecules that have both a hydrophyllic and a hydrophobic "end" that allows non-polar compounds to become suspended in polar compounds, i.e. "oil and water mixing."

The dish washing detergent simply mixes with the water. The contents of the detergent are what lift the grease off the dishes. It changes the pH and adds acids to breakdown protreins found in grease
Soaps are made from natural fats and oils and so are fully biodegradable. Detergents on the other hand are made from synthetic chemicals. These chemicals do not break down in the environment, and so they cause huge amount of pollution in our water ways- killing fish and water plants. This is due to...

Soap basically contains alkali and plant cells in the seed are slightly acidic ( 6 pH), therefore, soap will have adverse effect on seed germination.
I heard soap opera is when you sing a opera song with soap on your hands. ------------------------ *****These television serials have earned that moniker because they "sell soap". Their major sponsors are producers of a variety of cleaning products. I hope that clears this up for you.
Addictive, no. If it is good for you is another thing. Most soap is made from oil and petrochemicals, which are hazardous for that exact reason: they are man-made chemicals. Natural or organic soap usually consists of vegetable oil(s), lye and salt(s). Even though this soap is more natural, it will...
Serials got the nickname "soap operas" because they were interspaced with commercials for soap. As housewives were the main audience, soap manufacturers were the main sponsors.

It depends on what kinds of detergents you are using. If you have 100% natural organic detergent, it should have no effect on the plant growth. However, regular detergents have chemicals in them that would kill the nutrients in the soil. If you kill the soil, the plant would basically starve to...
Most soaps don't directly kill germs. They dissolve oils and dirt and loosen them from your skin so they can be washed down the drain, and with them go the germs. That is, if you wash your hands correctly. See the related question below for proper technique.
In this context, the word cake simply refers to the shape of the soap, it does not mean a delicious piece of soap. It's just a (more or less) rectangular piece of soap.
They used tide. Tide-to-go was not yet invented.
The Egyptians used Lye to clean they're clothes in the river, only after the Lye was rinsed out of the clothes and washed downstream did people notice that it would bubble and clean the skin. It was pure accident
No,trust me;I think I would know.
Supposedly, yes, but antibacterial soap has to stay on your hands for at least a minute. If it doesn't, it will only kill the weaker bacteria and still leave the worst germs on your skin.
See discussion area: "I need the information on the label or you should ask the manufacturer. If someone would give an answer without such information, it would be imprecise or even misleading."
Soap is a chemical compound or a mixture of more of them
i think, yes. that's because when i used it for a week or so , i  noticed some change in my face .It became soft and smooth. The  chemicals used in it are not that harmful.Now my face is soft and  glowing. It's not just the face but my body has also become soft.

it is mainly fat which rubs the oil and dirt off your handsIt works as a lubricant to help bacteria slide off the skin. Interestingly, the temperature of the wash water is not that important...it is merely the vehicle which rinses away the soap & impurities.
Answer . There are constituents of certain soaps that could be harmful or fatal to a goldfish. Detergent would be far more dangerous, however, than soap.
  Ashes were soaked in water for a few days which produces lye. The lye separates to the bottom of the kettle and is drained off. The lye is then mixed with animal fat and boiled. This is poured into a mold to make the soap. It wasn't the best smelling substance, but it did clean.

Cheap and simple, white distilled vinegar use diluted from around 30% to full strength if very bad. The science behind it, is that bacteria brakes down the urea into ammonia, hence smell. As the the vinegar is acidic it kills the bacteria, and neutralizes the ammonia. Job done! Just do the usual...
