Fillers are functional additives to laundry detergents. They facilitate the removal of dirt and prevent its re-deposition.
The role of the fillers is to effectively soften water by removing calcium and magnesium ions through chelation. Another function of fillers is to buffer washing baths and disperse dirt. They also have an anti-redepository effect, i.e. they adsorb on dirt particles and form a layer that inhibits dirt accumulation on fabric fibres.
Fillers are used in cleaning and washing compositions in household chemical products and cosmetic industry.
