Liquid detergent can be considered an essential item in our daily life. How good or bad a liquid detergent is affects how well we clean our clothes. How can we make better liquid detergents? Research shows that hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose, as a thickening ingredient, plays an important role in the manufacturing process of liquid detergents. Here’s how Kemox teaches you how to make better liquid detergent.
Step 1: Organise the essentials
Step 2: Mix HPMC with water
Next, pour 1.5 grams of HPMC into 400 grams of water. We need to keep stirring until it is completely mixed. This step is very important because Kemox HPMC has excellent water retention and thickening ability, as well as good dispersion in cold water. We can see the HPMC slowly blend in the water.
Step 3: Adding other ingredients
After the HPMC is mixed with the water, we gradually add the other ingredients needed for the liquid detergent. As shown in the video, various ingredients including sodium sulfate, fragrances, etc. are added. Again, these ingredients need to be mixed well. It is important to note that the ingredients and proportions vary from one type of liquid detergent to another. Contact Kemox if you would like more detailed information on the ingredients and proportions added to liquid detergents.
Step 4: Conduct a test
After all the ingredients have been added and mixed thoroughly. We slowly poured the mixed liquid detergent onto a dirty rag and scrubbed it by hand alone for a while before turning on the tap and scrubbing. We saw that it cleaned quickly and in a moment the rag was new.
Step 5: Prepare for home use
Finally, pour the liquid detergent into a small bottle take it home, and pour it into the washing machine to wash your clothes. Kemox HPMC is very effective in improving the consistency of detergents. With the magic of HPMC, homemade liquid detergent can work its magic.
In summary: The indispensable role of HPMC
Making a good detergent is not just a little experiment of mixing various chemicals, it’s knowing and using the right ingredients and experiencing the excellence of HPMC. HPMC is an indispensable ingredient in this process, not only improving product consistency and stability but also ensuring that the detergent is safe, non-toxic, and cost-effective. It is one of the key ingredients in the manufacture of liquid detergents.
