Trial Number 0

Trial Purpose:

To evaluate the efficacy of Bioneat with Hucker's soil

Date Run:


Experiment Procedure:

Nine pre-weighed coupons, three of each substrate per cleaner, were contaminated with one gram of Hucker's soil using a handheld swab and air-dried at room temperature (68 F) for 24 hours. The contaminated coupons were weighed to record dirty weights before placing three coupons per cleaner of the same substrate into a Gardner Straight Line Washability (SLW) unit. A Kimberly-Clark Wypal reinforced paper towel was attached to the cleaning sled. The Wypal and each coupon were treated with three sprays of the product and cleaned for 20 cycles (~30 seconds of cleaning). Cleaned coupons were wiped once with a dry paper towel before the final weights were taken.

Success Rating:

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


Bioneat is an effective cleaner to remove soil from the coupons.
