Trial Number 0

Trial Purpose:

To evaluate the efficacy of supplied dishwashing cleaners in removing standard food soil from ceramic, glass, and stainless steel coupons.

Date Run:

05/26/2017

Experiment Procedure:

Soiling Process:

A total of 15 trials were conducted, with five trials per dishwashing cleaner. For each trial a set of nine ceramic, a set of nine glass, and a set of nine stainless steel coupons were weighed on an analytical balance to determine their initial weights. The coupons were then soiled with 0.5 grams of standard food soil which consists of 80% margarine and 20% powdered milk using a hand held swab. The coupons were weighed again to obtain the amount of contaminant added. Following this a set of six dinner plates were soiled with 6.66 grams of standard food soil.

Cleaning Process:

The coupons were then placed on the top rack of the dishwasher, along with six tall glass tumblers and four small glass tumblers. The bottom rack of the dishwasher was loaded with four small dinner plates and six cereal bowls. In addition, a basket of assorted stainless steel cutlery was placed in the middle of the bottom rack. For each set of cleaning, the respective cleaner was poured until the detergent slot was filled. The dishwasher was then ran for 50-minutes as one trial cycle. After the cycle was finished, the six tall glass tumblers and four small glass tumblers were evaluated visually by a panel of three in regards to spotting and filming. The coupons were removed from the dishwasher and allowed to dry for 1 hour before being re-weighing to obtain the amount of contaminated removed.

The following rating scale from 1-5 was used for visual ratings on the glass tumblers:

Spotting Filming
1 No spots None
2 Random spots Barely
3 ¼ covered Slight
4 ½ covered Moderate
5 completely covered Heavy

Trial Results:

Gravimetric Analysis:
In regards to the ceramic substrates the Seventh Generation cleaner was most effective out of the cleaners, with an overall average removal of 96.27% as opposed to 94.79% for the AGAE cleaner and 92.66% for the Cascade cleaner. For glass, the most effective cleaner was the Cascade cleaner with an overall removal of 99.6%, barely edging out the Seventh Generation cleaner, which had an overall percentage removal of 99.59% and the AGAE cleaner with 99.49%. For stainless steel, the most effective cleaner was the Seventh Generation cleaner with an overall average percentage removal of 98.75%, eclipsing the AGAE and Cascade cleaners, which had overall average percentage removals of 96.23% and 96.48% respectively.
