Standard Test Method for Evaluation of Laundry Sanitizers and Disinfectants for Use in High-Efficiency Washing Operations

This test method is designed to evaluate sanitizing/disinfectant laundry detergents/additives for use in high efficiency (HE) automatic clothes washing operations that typically utilize very low wash water volumes.

Significance and Use

The procedure in this test method is used to evaluate the effectiveness of a test reagent or formulation under simulated low wash volume conditions to reduce or completely kill bacterial populations on contaminated fabrics and in wash water following a single wash.

Scope

This test method is designed to evaluate the effectiveness of laundry detergent formulations in disinfecting/sanitizing fabrics loaded in front loading high efficiency automatic clothes washing operations. This method designed to test on vegetative bacteria but can also be employed to test on viruses and fungi.

This test method is used in the in-vitro laboratory to evaluate the effectiveness of laundry detergent formulations in disinfecting/sanitizing fabrics loaded in front loading high efficiency automatic clothes washing operations.
