Trial Number 0

Trial Purpose:

To evaluate bathroom cleaning products at removing soils from ceramic, plastic, and chrome substrates.

Date Run:

10/15/2018

Experiment Procedure:

Nine pre-weighed coupons per cleaner (three Ceramic, three Plastic and three Chrome) were coated with a half of a gram of SSL Soil 1 Bathroom Soil using a hand held swab. The contaminated coupons were air dried for 24 hours at room temperature and weighed again to determine the amount of soil added.

Three coupons of each substrate were placed in the Straight Line Washability (SLW) unit, and a KC Wypal reinforced paper towel was attached to the cleaning sled and treated with two sprays of cleaning solution; each coupon was sprayed twice with the same cleaning solution. The SLW unit ran for 20 cycles (equivalent of 30 seconds of cleaning). Coupons were air dried after cleaning before recording final weights.
