Title: ONDULAR WASHER

Applicant/Assignee: CHRISTIAN BAUER GMBH + CO. KG

Application No.: EP2007/056193   Filing Date: 21/Jun/2007

Abstract:An axial ondular washer made from a circularly annular, flat spring material having an ondular line with maxima and minima with respect to a centre plane, wherein these maxima and minima are defined as lying on different sides of the centre plane and in each case being tangent on a plane of a first or second abutment (1, 2), which plane extends parallel to the centre plane, is to be improved with regard to its initial compression behaviour. For this purpose, an ondular washer of this type is characterized by the following features: the ondular line is composed of consecutive first and second sections, of which at least in each case two sections exist

in a first section, there is at least one ondular longitudinal region which begins and ends in the centre plane (3) and has a maximum and a minimum

in a second section, there are at least two ondular peaks having maxima or minima and elevations which lie below the spacing dimension between the delimiting planes of the abutments (1) and (2), wherein each adjacent first section is adjoined directly in each case by one of said ondular peaks.

Title: DETERGENTS WITH STABILIZED ENZYME SYSTEMS

Applicant/Assignee: DANISCO US, INC., GENENCOR DIVISION

Application No.: US2007/015672   Filing Date: 06/Jul/2007

Abstract:The present invention provides methods and compositions for the stabilization of oxidase enzymes during storage. In some preferred embodiments, the oxidase is a component of liquid detergent compositions. In some particularly preferred embodiments, the oxidase is stabilized by the addition of a reversible inhibitor of the oxidase to a liquid detergent. In some particularly preferred embodiments, the oxidase is stabilized with bisulfite. In further preferred embodiments, the use of a reversible inhibitor also prevents premature generation of peroxide during storage of liquid detergent. In additional embodiments, liquid detergent formulations comprised of oxidase enzyme, its substrate, and its reversible inhibitor produce active oxygen species (peroxide) upon dilution of the liquid detergent in laundry wash liquor.

Title: MULTIFUNCTIONAL LAUNDRY SHEET

Applicant/Assignee: S. C. JOHNSON & SON, INC

Application No.: US2007/022731   Filing Date: 26/Oct/2007

Abstract:A multifunctional laundry sheet that comprises, and combines the benefits of, a color catcher, a fabric softener, and a fragrance is disclosed. The color catcher absorbs or traps loose dye in wash liquor during a typical wash cycle of a washing machine, thereby preventing the re-deposition of the dye to fabrics being washed therein, while the fabric softener enhances the appearance of fabrics during a typical drying cycle of an automatic dryer by decreasing static cling, increasing softness and fluffiness, or decreasing wrinkles, of the fabrics. Preferably, at least a portion of the catcher remains associated with the laundry sheet during the washing and imparts visual color change to the laundry sheet after the color catcher is affiliated with loose colorants in the laundry bath. It is also preferable that at least a portion of the fabric softener remains associated with the laundry sheet during the washing process so that the laundry sheet can be further used in a drying process to impart fabric conditioning benefits to the fabrics.

Abstract:The present invention relates to compositions and methods employing a water soluble magnesium compound. In certain embodiments, the composition includes water and water soluble magnesium compound, but lacks other materials commonly used in cleaning compositions. The methods and compositions can provide magnesium ion at predefined ratios to calcium ion in water, such as magnesium ion in a molar amount equal to or in excess over a molar amount of calcium ion. A water soluble magnesium salt including an anion of a water soluble calcium salt is more effective than a magnesium salt with an anion of a water insoluble calcium salt. These compositions can be used for reducing lime scale or precipitate formation from hard water, removing soap scum, or the like.
