Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9830672A1] One aspect of the invention relates to a pourable cleaning composition having a bleaching action and suitable for cleaning hard surfaces includes: a) a carbomer; b) a compound selected from alkali metal hydroxides, alkaline earth metal hydroxides, sodium tripolyphosphates, pyrophosphates, bicarbonates, sesquicarbonates and mixtures thereof; c) a first nonionic or zwitterionic surfactant; d) a second anionic surfactant and e) an alkali or alkaline earth metal hypochlorite. A second aspect of the invention relates to an aqueous thickened bleach composition comprising (in parts by weight based on the total weight of the composition): a) 0.5 - 5.0 % of an alkali metal carboxylate; b) 0.5 - 4.0 % of an alkali metal salt, preferably an alkali metal chloride; c) 0.25 - 6.0 % of a water dispersible nonionic amine oxide; d) 0.5 - 8.0 % of a water dispersible anionic surfactant system including one or more sulfate or sulfonate surfactants; e) 0.01 - 10.0 % of a bleach releasing material, such as an alkali metal hypochlorite; f) 0.1 - 10.0 % of a pH adjusting agent for maintaining the alkalinity of the composition; g) 1.0 - 50 % of an abrasive material, preferably a particulate abrasive material; h) optionally, 0.05 - 3.0 % of a detergency builder, and the balance to 100 % being water. The compositions of the invention show good shelf life, exhibit a high level of bleach stability and show good stain and soil removal, particularly from hard surfaces.
