    Abstract: A cleaning composition includes water, glycerine, at least one alkyl polyglycoside and a surface modification polymer. The surface modification polymer acts to provides for initial cleaning or pretreatment of the hard surface and provides a hydrophilic coating or barrier layer on the surface which provides residual cleaning to the hard surface for an extended number of cleanings. The composition has an alkaline pH of from about 8 to 10.

  • Patent number: 8541355
    Abstract: A process that degasses a structured surfactant composition that comprises at least one surfactant, water, and at least one suspending agent chosen from polysaccharides, gums, and celluloses. By degassing the composition, the suspending agent can form a structured system. Gas, such as air bubbles, disrupts the formation of the structuring system, which reduces the ability of the composition to suspend materials.
