SOAPS AND DETERGENTS

Q. Why is it easier to do the washing up with detergent?
A. Detergent acts to break large globules of fat into smaller particles. Also detergent is a molecule with two distinct ends. One end is hydrophobic and attaches to the fat molecule. The other end is hydrophilic and attaches to a water molecule. When you pull out the plug, they all go down the drain together.
