Definitions for "Detergents"
herbs which cleanse wounds, etc.
a product designed to render, for example, oils and greases soluble in water, usually made from synthetics that lower the surface tension of a solvent (usually water).
compounds that possess a cleaning action and have hydrophilic and lipophilic parts.
