The Feasibility of Sodium Bicarbonate as a Stain Remover for Grease Abucay, Larry
Manlangit, Luis Alfonso
Morales, Don Niel
The Problem and Objective:
Stain removers in the market today have multiple health hazards that could endanger our health. Dangerous chemicals can cause irritation, health problems, dangerous fumes and other complications. The group aims to find a new alternative material for the removal of stains. The group also aims to find a cheaper alternative to other stain removers in the market through the use of easy to find ingredients at home. The main stain that will be focused on is Grease which is common in the field of Engineering.
The main objective for the ERD is to create a stain remover for Grease.
The Goal of this ERD is to create a cheap alternative for stain removers in the field of Engineering. The main contaminant we will focus on is grease or oil which is common in machines as a lubricant. The group will focus on using Sodium Bicarbonate or Baking Soda and Oyster. Both of these materials have proven to be effective stain removers with vinegar being 8% acetic acid diluted in water. The group plans on mixing the two ingredients to create a cleaning agent capable of removing grease or oil stains. It will be used for stains found in cloth. Sodium Bicarbonate is also used as a deodorant and can remove odours. It is also used as a replacement for softener when washing clothes with detergent. It is a weak base with a pH of 8.7.
The main materials we will use for the experiment are:
