The main components of washing powder are anionic surfactants, sodium alkylbenzene sulfonate, a small amount of non-ionic surfactants, plus some additives, phosphates, silicates, sodium sulfate, fluorescent agents, enzymes, etc., after mixing , Powder spraying and other processes, most of them now use 4A fluorite instead of phosphate. Washing powder refers to a powdery (granular) synthetic detergent.
After the 1940s, with the development of the chemical industry, people used the chemical substance extracted from petroleum-sodium tetrapropylene benzene sulfonate to produce detergents with better performance than soap. Later, people added phosphate, which softened hard water and improved the detergent’s decontamination effect, into the detergent, so that the performance of the detergent was more perfect. For the convenience of use, carrying, storage, transportation, etc., people make detergent into washing powder.
Since washing powder can exhibit good decontamination effects in various water quality such as well water, river water, tap water, spring water, and even sea water, and is widely used in various fabrics, its production and use have developed rapidly. Nowadays, washing powder is almost a necessary washing product for every family.
