Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9907275A1] The present invention is directed towards a hand-held container for predissolving a detergent composition. The container includes a housing (1) for containing a predetermined amount of detergent (14) and solvent, where the housing has a dispensing passage (11), and the dispensing passage has a distal end (29). A filter (6) is located inwardly of the distal end and has a pore size that prevents undissolved detergent from clogging the dispensing passage. During dispensing, the filter is oriented such that the predetermined amount of detergent does not completely clog the filter to prevent dissolved detergent from passing through the filter. At least one valve (52) is interposed between the filter and the distal end, to partially block the distal end. This container is suitable for predissolving detergent compositions which evolve gas.
