Abstract

Cleaning liquids, cleaning compounds, and cleaning fluids remove unwanted materials (soil such as oil, sugars, proteins, dust, lubricants, etc.) from a solid substrate (fabrics and fibrous materials and hard surfaces like glass, metal, and painted surfaces) by bringing the soil into mechanical suspension or colloidal, molecular, or ionic solution in some solvent. The nature of the solvent provides a means of classification.
