  • Detergents
    • A detergent lifts the grease stain off into the water
    • Low temperature advantages: less energy needed, no damage to coloured dyes
    • Hydrophilic head-dissolves in water, forces with water meolecules
      • Hydrophobic tail -dissolves in grease, forces with oil molecules
        • Detergents form strong intermolecula-r forces to the oil and the water to remove grease stains
    • Dry cleaning-organic solvent that is not water
