*cant be used*The Feasibility of Malunggay (Moringa oleifera) as Cleaning AgentAbstractThe purpose of this study is to investigate malunggay leaves as cleaning agent. The malunggay leaves wre separated from the stalk, pounde using the mortar and pestle until the extract comes out. The pounded malunggay leaves wre mixed with baking soda and then water. The purpose of baking soda is toincrease the effectivity of the product. The product was then placed in a container. Using the sponge, apply the mixture on stained areas (kitchen sink, refrigerator wall and tile wall). After applying the mixture on stained areas, rinse immediately. Observation was then done.Chapter 1: IntroductionA. Background of the Study:Cleaning agent refers to all compositions intended to be used in connection with and for increasing the effectiveness of cleaning activities. Cleaning agent includes but is not limited to hard surface cleaning compositions (kitchen, bathroom, floor, general household & glass cleaning compositions), detergents, dishwashing and food cleaning compositions, disinfectants and the like. The term cleaning as used hereinrefers to those activities which involve the removal of undesirable residues from surfaces and particularly includes activities such as chemical, mechanical and thermal cleaning activities as well as combinations thereof.Malunggay (Moringa oleifera) is called a miracle vegetable because it is not only a food, it is also a medicine. It may therefore be a functional food. This plant tree is not only useful but it is the most nutritional vegetable and a herbal plant. its flowers, leaves, young pods and roots are being utilized. It is native to India but has spread to other tropical regions; in the Philippines, it grows repidly and with ease innearly every backyard when desired. Its leaves contain different amino acids such as sitosterol and pectinesterase.This study was conducted because the researcher wanted to know if the malunggay leaves can be an effective cleaning agent to household stains. Through this the researcher will determine the effect of malunggay leaves to common household stains. This is why the research study is conceived.B. Statement of the Problem:General Problem: This study is aimed to determine the effect of malunggay (Moringa oleifera) leaves on common household stains.Specifically it answers the following questions:1. Can the malunggay leaves be an effective cleaning agent on common househod stains?2. Is there any significant difference between the malunggay leaves and the commercial one?3. Is the cleaning agent suitable in replacing the commercial one?C. Hypothesis:
The malunggay leaves are effective as cleaning agent.D. Significance of the Study:This research study can contribute an idea to young minds in creating new alternative cleaning agents derived from any abundant plants. Research studies like this develops the value of resourcefulness and open-mindedness to young researchers and if landed to the right plant, this will serve as an everyday use to clean common household stains.
