Trial Number 0

Trial Purpose:

To test the efficiency of Natural Cleaning Company’s Citrus Cleaning ES against Lysol Power Bath.

Date Run:

10/07/2016

Experiment Procedure:

Ceramic, plastic and chrome coupons were selected and arranged into two sets of three coupons. The
initial weights were taken and they were promptly soiled. They were then allowed to air dry for a day, at which point the dirty weights were taken to determine the amount of soil added. Coupons were then cleaned for 30 seconds with a cleaner per set. Paper towel was sprayed once and attached to the cleaning sled. The coupons were sprayed once as well. After cleaning, the coupons were air dried for another day and final clean weights were taken and effectiveness calculated.

Chemistries Evaluated: Natural Cleaning Company Citrus Cleaning (ES) Extra Strength, Lysol Power Bath

Trial Results:

The Natural Cleaning Company Extra Strength performed the most efficiently on chrome coupons, however Lysol Power
Bath was the most effective supplied product on the ceramic and plastic coupons.
