All-Purpose Cleaners and Their Formulation book
The most fundamental use of surfactants in cleaning formulations is probably personal cleansing, closely followed by laundry applications. However, the general cleaning of the surfaces of the home is represented by all-purpose cleaners. These are the topic of this chapter: formulations devoted to general household cleaning. They are referred to as either all-purpose cleaners (APCs) or in some cases bucket dilutable cleaners (BDCs). Although, as we shall see, the cleaners do not target any particular soil by name, the overall target is greasy soils.
