  • Publication number: 20140128480
    Abstract: Microfibrous cellulose (MFC) broths are provided having improved performance as compared to wet cake microfibrous cellulose (MFC) and powdered microfibrous cellulose (MFC). In embodiments, compositions having an effective amount of an MFC broth and an effective amount of a surfactant have an improved yield value as compared to a composition having a surfactant and a wet cake MFC, a powdered MFC, or a combination thereof at the same concentration as the MFC broth. Also, methods are provided for improving the yield value of surfactant compositions by adding an effective amount of a microfibrous cellulose broth to an effective amount of surfactant to provide a surfactant composition having a yield value that is higher than a composition having the surfactant and a wet cake MFC, a powdered MFC, or a combination thereof at the same concentration as the microfibrous cellulose broth.

  • Publication number: 20140115794
    Abstract: A solid fabric softening composition is disclosed which includes a quaternary ammonium fabric softening compound which is stabilized to form a solid with a mixture of a water soluble organic salt and a medium to long chain carboxylic acid. This stabilizing combination has been shown to effectively form a solid quaternary ammonium based fabric softening composition with up to as much as 70% by weight of quaternary ammonium compound. The formulations are stable at typical storage temperatures of up to 110° F. and provide fabric softening similar to and even superior to other traditional liquid formulations.
