Abstract

The continuously improved energy efficiency and reduced water usage of domestic laundry appliances has improved the environmental footprint of washing considerably. But the sustainability-driven shift towards lower washing temperatures, and the increasing use of bleach-free detergents, may unfortunately negatively impact laundry freshness and hygiene. This calls for new innovation for the sustainable detergents of tomorrow. Here we show that with the use of a nature-based dispersin enzyme technology, deep-cleaning and malodor prevention is possible, on textiles and in the washing machine, even at low temperature washing with liquid and single-dose detergents. This shows that it is possible to formulate detergents that can enable the consumers to wash their clothes sustainably without compromising washing performance.
