Why are cleansing agents such as detergents preferred over soap?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 9th Jul, 2014, 05:03: PM
Detergents are cleansing agents which have all the properties of soaps, but which actually do not contain any soap. Detergents are preferred over soap as it works on hard water i.e. it forms foam in both hard and soft water, unlike soap.
Some of the detergents give foam even in ice cold water.
