Do you have a little one destined to be a scientist or who just loves learning how things work? Log on to www.explorationclean.org, a narrated site designed to teach kids all about the science of cleaning.
You can check out the section on enzymes, ingredients that play a powerful role in removing stains and allow us to wash clothes in cold water. They work like the enzymes in our digestive system that help break down the food we eat. What’s really cool is that each type of enzyme is attracted to a certain type of stain, like insects to flowers.
