Is your Laundry Detergent Bar the Best?
The following comparative assessment of laundry detergent bars gains significance in light of the fact that the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) has revised certain important parameters including detergency. Other parameters that have been revised are ash built-up and phosphate limit. All of these ultimately determine the overall quality of the product you are using. While foaminess and mushiness are perhaps the qualities that we notice more while using a detergent bar, there are other aspects that are equally or more crucial. Due to the large number of detergent bars available in the market, the process of selecting a ‘best’ brand is often a formidable one. In order to find out if some of the better-known detergent bars are complying with the national standards and how these come out on quality parameters, we tested nine brands.
