Chapter 1 Background of the Study
This chapter gives an overview of the research study, which includes the short introduction, the statement of the problem, the statement of the hypothesis, the significance and the importance of the study, the scope and delimitations and the definition of terms.
Men and women in the present day, as essential to their living necessitate clothes. Clothes, of different designs, and of different functions serve the human race by giving them protection, and by providing them with proper hygiene. Different clothing brands have now appeared and each giving its customers the comfort and the satisfaction they expect.
Parallel to what the needs of people, scientists of different races have come up with substances that cleanse and disinfect clothing and fabric from germs that have the potential of harming the human race. They name it detergents, together with different soaps and surfactants.
As a vital factor for the cleansing of fabric in clothing, the researchers have searched for substituent materials that may in turn provide the cleaning action given by the modern detergent. While loitering around the community a member of the team saw egg shells hanging from orchid vessels. In turn, the researchers have searched for a waste product, commonly unused and usually left away. The team found out that salted egg shells, in a way may serve the detergent’s purpose. A detergent composition which is mainly composed of a salt of basic amino acid of a surface activity-having organic sulfuric acid or organic ester sulfate, and is possessed of an extremely low virulence especially to marine products. Usually, Borax (Sodium Borate) is the main ingredient of the detergent that serves as the cleaning agent. Its chemical analysis is anhydrous borax, 53.8 percent; boric acid, 37.2 percent; sodium oxide, 16.6 percent; water of crystallization, 46.2 percent; and chloride, 37 parts per million, which borax can be a cleaning agent of...
