Abstract:

For assessing the antimicrobial efficacy of commercial and laboratory prepared utensils and floor cleansers, three most commonly used utensils cleansers and three floor cleansers were purchased from the market. Four types of cleansers i.e. 2 for utensils cleaning and 2 for floor cleaning were prepared in the laboratory. A total of 10 cleanser i.e. 5for utensils and 5 for floor cleaning were tested for their antimicrobial efficiency using swabbing method. All the cleanser were also tested for their MIC i.e. (minimum inhibitory concentration). The finding of the research show that in case of laboratory prepared acidic as well as basic utensils cleansers, there was no bacterial growth when cleansers were applied in concentration of 2ml or more, similar were the result of commercial utensils cleanser UC-I while utensils cleansers UC-II and UC-III were unable to inhibit the microbes even upto 2ml concentration. Similarly in case of laboratory prepared acidic as well as basic floor cleansers bacterial growth was not detected when these were applied in concentration of 20% whereas none of the selected commercial floor cleansers was able to inhibit the bacterial growth on tiles at 20%concentration. The findings further revealed that laboratory prepared utensils and floor cleansers inhibited the growth of yeast and mold in all types of soiled surfaces tests and have better antimicrobial properties as compared to selected commercial utensils and floor cleansers. Therefore, these cleansers need to be promoted for wide spread use.
