Moringa Oleifera as an Alternative Detergent
1 Chapter 1 THE PROBLEM Introduction This study about Moringa Oleifera enables the creation of a new homemade detergent and its target to clean fabric and furniture. This study will prove that even vegetables like Malunggay can also be used as house cleaners. This study will try to improve the cleaning powers of the other commercial detergents by adding malunggay extract to it.
It will prove that the power of malunggay is not limited and this will prove people wrong. They think malunggay can only be used as medicines or food, but the researchers study, Malunggay’s purpose is to be a liquid detergent.
There is a great possibility that malunggay’s power can also clean items in the household. The target of this study is to improve the progress of cleanliness in our economy. Malunggay can clean and it can dissolve dirt in a great speed. Chemically speaking, there is a great possibility that malunggay’s chlorophyll might have the power not the leaves itself. The decision in doing this study was made during this late year of 2011 since herbal products such as malunggay shampoos and conditioners.
These herbal items are greatly needed by the public market not because only it has a small price, but also it has an effect. Malunggay can clean stains and dissolve them in a great time. Testing malunggay’s power but sooner and sooner, malunggay’s power can be soon unveiled and discovered. When this happens, there will be a great upgrade in the whole economy. 2 Statement of the Problem Moringa Oleifera as an alternative detergent This study will be conducted to develop a horseradish (Moringacae/Moringa Oleifera) liquid detergent.
Specifically, this study will attempt to answer the following questions. 1. How long does it take for the moringa detergent to remove stains? 1. 1 Catsup 1. 2Coffee 1. Is moringa detergent better than the stain removing capacity of the commercial detergent? Significance of the study This study will contribute to a growing number of demands to a commercial detergent by helping people work easier and finish earlier. People need many detergents for their works such as cleaning clothes but with malunggay detergents, you can clean in just 2-5 wipes the furniture.
This can also motivate and challenge school authorities to a cleaner and have a less stress and it’s only for a low cost price. This can contribute to household maids and moms so that they would not have a hard time in removing stains that need to be washed out for a very long time. Scope and Delimitation This study is focused on making an alternative liquid detergent from malunggay. This study is limited to only using malunggay as a detergent not as using this as shampoos and conditioners.
The investigation is concerned on the economy of the Philippines may sink down to poverty because of high prices of items in the public market which are needed in great amount have a high cost. This study does not only want the economy of the Philippines but also the world’s economy because it can contribute to world safety because it does not have poisonous and hazardous to health chemicals. In the way, we can contribute to the economy, we can save lives, and we can save Mother Earth. 8 Chapter 3 METHODOLOGY This chapter presents the method and procedure in conducting the study.
This includes the Research Design, Materials and Instrumentation, Collection of materials, Preparation of Treatments, Detergent Making, Testing and Evaluation of the Detergent’s Quality and, Statistical Treatment. Research Design The researchers used CRD or Completely Randomized Design because this study has replications of treatments (R) was assigned completely at random to independent experimental subjects. This study has 2 treatments; T1 = Control and T2 = Malunggay (Moringa Oleifera). Materials and Instrumentation
This experimentation used 1 mL of Malunggay extract, 1 mL of Malunggay’s chlorophyll, 10 samples of Malunggay seeds. Collection of Materials This experiment was done in General Santos City. 1 mL of Malunggay extract and 1 mL of Malunggay’s chlorophyll was from General Santos City. The 10 samples of Malunggay seeds are from the local residences in one of our researchers. 9 Preparation of Treatments Malunggay Extract (mL) Treatments T1 R2 R1 T2 R2 R1 LEGEND T- Treatments R- Replication 10 Experimental Layout T2R1 T1R1 T2R2 T1R2 Legend T – Treatment T2 – Malunggay E. T1 – ControlR – Replication 11 Detergent Making
In making this detergent, you will need 2 cups of distilled water, Fragrance, 4 packs of unflavored gelatin, an empty jar and, Red food coloring. Heat one cup of distilled water until it boils. Then, stir in 4 packages of unflavored gelatin until dissolved. Remove the mixture from heat and stir in another 1 cup of distilled water. Add 10-20 drops of fragrance and coloring. Pour Malunggay extract and Chlorophyll into the mixture. Stir the mixture then place in a cold temperature for approximately 5-10 minutes. Pour the gel into a clean jar or a small container. Testing and Evaluation of the Detergent’s Quality
The Malunggay detergent was compared to a commercial detergent by sinking them in the same size of a pail and at the same time with the same number of water and limit of detergent. The same stains were also added. Photographs were taken for public documentations. Statistical Analysis (ANOVA) It used the t-test dependent to determine the significant differences in the two treatments and replications and to understand the statistical independence of one treatment to another treatment on another material and t-test was used to determine which detergent was faster enough to clean the same amount of stains. 2 Chapter IV Results and Discussion This chapter presents and explains the data gathered in texture, graphical and tabular manner. Table 4. 1 Mean Duration in Removing Catsup Stains Treatments| R1| R2| R3| Mean| T1(Commercial)| 13. 00s| 17. 05s| 17. 00s| 15. 22s| T2(Malunggay)| 11. 25s| 12. 35s| 15. 17s| 12. 59s| Table 4. 2 Mean Duration in Removing Coffee Stains Treatments| R1| R2| R3| Mean| T1(Commercial)| 17. 25s| 18. 14s| 17. 25s| 15. 51s| T2(Malunggay)| 18. 35s| 25. 17| 15. 21s| 17. 91s|
From the table, it could be seen that replicates 1, 2 and, 3 reflect the seconds in cleaning the stains by each detergent. The mean duration in removing catsup stains using T2 (Malunggay) is much faster at 12. 59s compared to T1 (commercial detergent) which is at 15. 22s. However, the mean duration in removing coffee stains using Malunggay was a bit higher at 17. 91s. The above data prove that Malunggay is indeed an effective household material in removing stains. 13 Chapter V CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS
This chapter states in concise form the generalization in the form of conclusions and the solutions to the problem in the form of recommendations. Conclusions Based on the analysis of the results of this study, the researchers arrived at the following conclusions: 1. For the Moringa Oleifera detergent to remove the stains, it takes: 1. 1) 12. 59s to remove the Catsup Stains 1. 2) 17. 91s to remove the Coffee Stains 2. Moringa detergent is better than the stain removing capacity of the commercial detergent because it can clean faster without much scrubbing.
Recommendations There were factors of the study that need further analysis and consideration. To this, extent, the researchers came up with the following recommendations: 1. Antibacterial Activity Test of Moringa detergent should be conducted. 2. Further studies to the potency of Moringa detergent in removing stains such as chocolate, soy sauce and alike should be done. 14 Abstract This study reveals the use of Moringa Oleifera or locally known as Malunggay, as an alternative detergent in cleaning fabrics and furniture.
The alternative detergent was tested against the commercial detergent, by measuring the estimated time both detergents could clean. The outcome of the test was that the newly made detergent almost has the same estimated time with the commercial detergent, but cleaning the stains needs more scrubbing if the commercial detergent is used, while on the other hand, cleaning the stains with the alternative detergent provides less scrubbing. Thus, Moringa liquid detergent is an effective household material in removing stains.
