Soaps and Detergents



Soaps and detergents are artificial cleansers having cleansing action in water. Their molecules consist of long hydrocarbon chains with one polar end. When a dirty cloth is soaked in water containing soap/detergent, the molecules of soap/detergent gather around the stain and an aggregated particle, called micelle, is formed with oil trapped inside it.
