Comparative Study of Some House-Hold Surface Active Substances

Authors(1) :-Dr. Ashoke Hazra

Present study describes how surface tension changes of some house-hold substances that we have use in our daily life? Here we use four different surface active substances such as Face wash (Neem), Hand wash (Dettol) , Dish wash (Vim) and Shampoo (Clinic Plus). Surface tension of different solutions was measured by Stalagmometer (Drop weight method). Dish wash shows lower surface tension than the other three. Low surface tension helps to better cleansing propertry. All (house hold) surface active substances are compared with Sodium Laryl Sulfate.
