Applicant/Assignee: KIMBERLY-CLARK WORLDWIDE, INC

Abstract:

The present invention is directed to a health-and-hygiene appliance comprising a dispersible component and a releasable component. Some or all of the releasable component is not homogeneously distributed throughout the dispersible component. Instead, the releasable component is disposed adjacent or proximate to the dispersible component, as would occur if the dispersible component was coated, sprayed, injected, deposited, printed, or otherwise associated with a formed dispersible component. One example of such an appliance is a cleansing product in which, on exposure to liquid, such as water, the dispersible component disperses or disintegrates, thereby releasing, and making available, all or substantially all of the releasable component, in this case a soap, cleanser, or other formulation.

The releasable component may be released prior to, concurrent with, and/or after dispersal or disintegration of the dispersing component. The appliance can be sized for convenient handling by a caregiver or user-e.g., a child-and for delivery of a pre-selected amount of the releasable component in a single use.

Title: Cleaning

Applicant/Assignee: RECKITT BENCKISER (UK) LIMITED

Application No.: 11/572361   Filing Date: 18/Jul/2005

Abstract:

A liquid cleaning composition and a solid state catalyst are provided in combination. The solid state catalyst causes a chemical reaction in the liquid cleaning composition, when the liquid cleaning composition is brought into contact with it. The chemical reaction may increase the oxidising power of the liquid cleaning composition, or change its pH, or cause gas evolution, or release heat.

Title: WAREWASHING COMPOSITION FOR USE IN AUTOMATIC DISHWASHING MACHINES, AND METHODS FOR MANUFACTURING AND USING

Applicant/Assignee: ECOLAB INC

Application No.: 12/250177   Filing Date: 13/Oct/2008

Abstract:

A warewashing detergent composition is provided according to the invention. The warewashing detergent composition includes a cleaning agent, an alkaline source, and a corrosion inhibitor. The cleaning agent comprises a detersive amount of a surfactant. The alkaline source is provided in an amount effective to provide a use composition having a pH of at least about 8. The corrosion inhibitor includes a source of aluminum ion and a source of zinc ion. The relative amounts of the source of zinc ion and the source of aluminum ion can be controlled to reduce visible filming when the warewashing detergent composition is used in the presence of hard water. Methods for using and manufacturing a warewashing detergent composition are provided.

Patent No.: US7638475B2  Issued: 29/Dec/2009

Title: Space Saving Toilet Cleaning System

Applicant/Assignee: GEORGIA-PACIFIC CONSUMER PRODUCTS LP

Application No.: 11/689170   Filing Date: 21/Mar/2007

Abstract:

A cleaning system having pulverulent foaming cleanser (e.g., acid, alkali metal carbonate and surfactant) is sealed within a water soluble (e.g., PVOH) deformable pouch frictionally retainable within the core of a roll of bath tissue. Upon placement of the pouch in the bowl, water in the bowl penetrates the water soluble wall of the pouch, generating foam which provides cleaning action by activating and carrying cleansing chemicals, not only below the water line of the bowl, but also considerably above it. When used routinely with each change of bath tissue roll, such a cleaning can extend the time between required manual cleanings considerably.
