Trial Number 1

Trial Purpose:

To evaluate three supplied products for all purpose cleaning following GS 37 requirements

Date Run:

09/18/2014

Experiment Procedure:

Preweighed ceramic, plastic G-10 and painted steel coupons were coated with Hucker's Soil Formulation (Jif Creamy Peanut Butter,Salted Butter, Arrowhead Mills stone ground wheat flour, Egg Yolk, Evaporated milk, Distilled water, Printer's ink with boiled linseed oil, Shaws saline solution) using a hand held swab and allowed to dry for 2 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 Kimberly-Clark Wypal reinforced paper towel was attached to the cleaning sled and soaked with 1 spray of cleaning solution. Each coupon was sprayed once with the same cleaning solution. The cleaning unit was run for 20 cycles (~33 seconds). At the end of the cleaning, coupons were wiped once with a dry paper towel. Final weights were recorded, efficiencies were calculated and recorded.

Success Rating:

Results successful using TACT (time, agitation, concentration, and temperature, as well as rinsing and drying) and/or other cleaning chemistries examined.

Conclusion:

The overall results of the cleaners were not effective at cleaning the hucker soil. However H2 Orange2 Tile and Multipurpose Hyper Concentrated were effective at removing the hucker soil from plastic substrates with an efficiency of 83%. Alternatively Tile Grout Hyper Concentrated is effective at removing hucker soil from ceramic substrates at an efficiency of 85%. However overall it has the lowest efficiency of 62% on average at removing all types of substrates. In addition to this Tile Grout Hyper Concentrated and Multipurpose Hyper Concentrated has shown to both have the best efficiency in removing the hucker soil with an average efficiency of 73% removal of contaminants.
