To evaluate supplied products for all purpose cleaning using manual cleaning
Preweighed ceramic, painted steel, and plastic coupons were coated with DCC17 soil using a hand held swab and were allowed to dry for 24 hours at room temperature. The contaminated coupons were weighed again to determine the amount of soil added.
Three coupons were placed into a Gardner Straight Line Washability unit. A Wypall L30 reinforced wipe was attached to the cleaning sled and soaked with 1 spray of cleaning solutions with a VWR bottle. Each coupon was sprayed 1 time with the same cleaning solution. The solution was allowed to penetrate for 30 seconds followed by cleaning in the SLW unit for 20 cycles (~30 seconds). Efficiency was calculated for each coupon.

Success Rating:Results successful using TACT (time, agitation, concentration, and temperature, as well as rinsing and drying) and/or other cleaning chemistries examined.
Each product has shown a very similar high level of cleaning, with Chrisal outperforming the Clorox in every instance. The spread of results for Chrisal at different dilutions shows that there is a minimal difference between the lower concentrations of Chrisal.
