To compare the effectiveness of removing Bathroom soil from a variety of surfaces using the supplied cleaning products.
Eighteen preweighed coupons, three for each substrate, were soiled with 1g of Bathroom soil (28.6% All-in-one shampoo and conditioner, 21.4% dry skin lotion, 21.4% liquid hand soap, 14.3% liquid body wash, 7.2% deodorant bar soap, 7.1% water) using a swab. Coupons air dried at room temperature (68F) for 24 hours before recording dirty weights. A sponge, provided by EcoEgg, was used to manually clean with both the supplied and comparative product. The sponge was saturated once with deionized water before rubbing it into the EcoEgg hard surface cleaner in a circular motion for five seconds. Coupons were cleaned one at a time for 30 seconds in a circular motion with a reapplication of the cleaner between each coupon. A dime sized drop of the comparative product was applied directly to the coupons one at a time and cleaned with a wet sponge for 30 sections in a circular motion. The coupons were dried by wiping once with a microfiber towel before taking clean weights and final observations.
|Cleaner||Coupon Type||Initial wt. of cont.||Final wt. of cont.||%Cont. Removed||Avg. Cont. Removed (%)||Overall Cont. Removed (%)|
|Hard Surface Cleaner||Ceramic||0.2158||0.0109||94.95||91.81||90.50|
Both cleaners easily removed the soil. EcoEgg’s product left behind some residue after drying, but it looks like it could be easily removed by wiping a wet sponge on the surface.
Success Rating:A cleanliness study, addressing only various analytical techniques.
EcoEgg’s Hard Surface Cleaner Citrus Burst is as effective as the comparison cleaning product at removing bathroom soil from ceramic, plastic, and chrome.
