Laundry Products

Spartan Chemical Company has introduced two new Clothesline laundry products. Clothesline Fresh Liquid Alkali is a concentrated laundry builder that prepares fabric for the washing process by raising the pH of the wash water and allowing individual fibers to open up and release trapped soil particles. Highly alkaline, the product contains biodegradable softening agents. It has anti-redeposition polymers to help suspend oil and greasy soils in the wash water.

Clothesline Fresh Xtreme Laundry Sour is designed to neutralize the pH of the finished wash so it will not irritate skin. The product helps to remove iron stains from previously stained linens.
