US PATENTS RELATED TO AUXILIARY COMPOSITIONS FOR LAUNDERING PUBLISHED IN 2013



Patent No.: US8349788B2  Issued: 08/Jan/2013

Title: Cotton-gentle hypochlorite bleach

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 13/373399   Filing Date: 14/Nov/2011

Abstract:

This invention discovers that laundry-strength hypochlorite bleach compositions are described by three essential components

hypochlorite, hydroxide, and the concentration ratio (CR), the latter defined as the concentration of hypochlorite over the concentration of hydroxide (also, its reciprocal). The hypochlorite content determines fabric cleaning efficacy, the hydroxide content determines stability, and the CR indicates quality of fabric safety, such quality ranging from damaging to gentle. Therefore, hypochlorite bleach compositions can range from fabric damaging to degrees of fabric protection, depending upon the values of CR. Values of CR (as defined) greater than 30:1 characterize fabric-damaging common regular bleach. By decreasing the ratio value, fabric protection progressively improves to a relatively broad maximum at a ratio value about 2:1.

Title: HYPOCHLORITE DENTURE COMPOSITIONS AND METHODS OF USE

Applicant/Assignee: THE CLOROX COMPANY

Application No.: 12/903471   Filing Date: 13/Oct/2010

Abstract:

A solid composition including calcium and/or magnesium hypochlorite, a builder (e.g., one or more of carbonate, bicarbonate, sesquicarbonate), an acid, a water-soluble polymer, at least one anionic surfactant, and optionally, a hydrotrope. The composition does not include any potassium hypochlorite, sodium hypochlorite, lithium hypochlorite, N-halogenated compounds, peroxides, persulfates, hydantoins, isocyanurates, or carboxylic acids that also have hydroxyl, amino, amido, imino, or imido groups. Upon dissolution of the composition in water, the calcium and/or magnesium hypochlorite and acid react to form hypochlorous acid. The use of hypochlorous acid, rather than direct use of an alkaline or alkaline earth hypochlorite results in a composition that is typically acidic rather than basic, and that results in improved cleaning.

The composition is particularly suited for cleaning and disinfecting dentures.
