Title: Low-builder, highly water-soluble, low-density solid laundry detergent composition

Applicant/Assignee: THE PROCTER & GAMBLE COMPANY

Application No.: 11/974841   Filing Date: 16/Oct/2007

Abstract:

The present invention relates to a solid laundry detergent composition having a bulk density of from 100 g/l to 500 g/l, wherein the composition comprises: (a) from 1 wt % to 70 wt % anionic detersive surfactant

(b) from 0 wt % to 10 wt % zeolite builder

and (c) from 0 wt % to 10 wt % phosphate builder

wherein the composition comprises: (I) from 61 wt % to 90 wt % low-density particulate component, wherein the low-density particulate component has a bulk density of from 100 g/l to 426 g/l, and wherein the low-density particulate component comprises inorganic material and organic material

Title: Method of disinfecting and providing residual kill at a surface

Applicant/Assignee: SOLUTIONS BIOMED, LLC

Application No.: 12/217292   Filing Date: 30/Jun/2008

Abstract:

The present invention is drawn to disinfectant systems and methods which can be used to produce a disinfectant solution. The system can include a first liquid composition and a second liquid composition. The first liquid composition comprises from 0.0005 ppm to 100,000 ppm by weight of a transition metal or alloy and an alcohol, and the second liquid composition comprises water and a peroxygen compound. The first and second liquid compositions are formulated to be combined so as to yield a resultant disinfectant solution. The disinfectant solution can be used to disinfect a variety of surfaces and even liquid compositions.
