All-Purpose Cleaners

A detergent is made with surfactants that aid in cleaning by reducing the surface tension of water, making soils water soluble. Water, by itself, cannot clean stains, especially organic stains, which have oil in them. Water’s surface tension does not allow the oil and the water to interact, thus the saying “water and oil do not mix”. When the surface tension is lowered through the addition of a detergent or surfactant, the water can spread itself more and is looser than it was in its normal state.
