Drier Laundry Through Chemistry
You did not think you needed this. This is an old article post (2005) but something that relates to surface tension and something I should do today, my laundry. People at P&G and other researchers are constantly discovering about how to clean clothes better and more efficiently with better surfactant formulations. They found that your clothes hold water like tiny capillaries. Reducing the surface tension of liquid detergent by adding a mix of common ingredients in different proportions could release the water from the tiny capillaries easily. This leaves the clothes 20% drier and reduces the electricity needed to dry your clothes with a conventional drier or reduces the time needed to hang your clothes which you should do more often.
