What is washing powder?

Washing powder

The meaning of WASHING POWDER is soap in the form of a powder that is used to wash clothes, towels, sheets, etc.

Who invented laundry detergent?

In 1907, German Han Gao invented washing powder for the first time with borate and silicate as the main raw materials. Washing powder is an alkaline synthetic detergent. The main component of washing powder is an anionic surfactant: Sodium Alkylbenzene Sulfonate, a small amount of non-ionic surfactant, plus some additives, phosphate, silicate, sodium sulfate, fluorescent agent, enzyme, etc Powder spraying, and other processes, now most of them use 4A fluorspar instead of phosphate.

laundry detergent history

After the 1940s, with the development of the chemical industry, people used the chemical substance extracted from petroleum – sodium tetrapolypropylene benzene sulfonate to produce detergent with better performance than soap. Later, phosphate, which can soften hard water and improve the decontamination effect of detergent, was added to the detergent, so that the performance of the detergent was more perfect. For the convenience of use, carrying, storage and transportation, people make detergent into washing powder.
Because washing powder can show a good decontamination effect in well water, river water, tap water, spring water, even seawater and other water quality, and is widely used in all kinds of fabrics, its production and use have developed rapidly. Now, washing powder is a necessary washing product for almost every family.
