Introducing Soft Washing Surfactants: The Magic Ingredient!

By Mark Cave February 25, 2024

🌊 Introducing Soft Washing Surfactants: The Magic Ingredient! 🧪

💡Understanding Soft Washing

First off, let's dive into the concept of Soft Washing 🏊. Soft washing isn't just your regular cleaning – it is a delicate yet effective method of washing surfaces that doesn't cause any damage. The success of soft washing largely boils down to a unique blend of chemicals and surfactants for achieving brilliant results 🌟.

🌈 The Unseen Marvel – Surfactants

A surfactant, or surface active agent, is the star player in your Soft Wash Chemicals team. In short, surfactants are there to ensure that your cleaning solution fully wets the surface and maximises contact with contaminants. The result? A cleaner surface with less elbow grease 🧼💪. Beneath that gentle work is chemistry magic – surfactants affect the surface tension of a liquid, allowing the cleaning solution to spread out and penetrate more effectively. Now, isn't that clever? 😏 But not all surfactants are created equal, which is why the Clever Wash Surfactantstands out from the rest with its unique formula designed for optimal cleaning results. So, the next time you prepare your soft wash mix, keep the Clever Wash Surfactant handy!

🌿 Influencing the Soft Washing Process

Surfactants serve a singular goal in SoftWash UK Ltd's cleaning process: enhancing the overall cleaning power. They do so by: 1. Reducing surface tension to allow better penetration. 2. Busting soil and dirt wide open. 3. Keeping the dirt in the suspension to avoid re-depositing on the surface. Not only do these surfactants help you achieve an inspiring, streak-free shine on surfaces, but they also let you clean effectively with a lower concentration of cleaner. Less is more with the right surfactant!✨

👩‍🔬 The Safest Bet: Clever Wash

Why is the Clever Wash Surfactant the safest option for soft washing? 💭 Well, besides being an exceptionally efficient surfactant, it's also eco-friendly - a perfect combination of effectiveness and responsibility. Safe doesn't have to be less effective - and with Clever Wash Surfactant, you can ensure top-notch cleaning without any harmful impact on the environment. 🌍💚

⭐Conclusion: The Clever Way to Wash

In the world of Soft Washing, surfactants hold an invisible yet crucial role. They're the unsung hero, a hidden champion. If you're into soft washing, employing the right surfactant in your cleaning mixture can make an incredible difference, taking your cleaning from great to spectacular.

Soft Wash Calculator App

Now you can say I've got an app for that!


Available NOW Click Here To Download

Softwashing calculator is an indispensable tool for juggling complicated chemical mixes. It helps reduce wastage and keeps operating costs down by giving accurate proportions

If you are having difficulty getting your head around the maths, trying to work out what percentage of softwash you need, how much chemical, surfactant and water to add, then this is the App for you.



The Soft Wash Calculator App allows you to work out your soft wash recipe by telling you exactly how much chemical, how much water and how much surfactant to add to get the desired soft wash recipe.
It doesn't stop there!.
- It can also remix your leftover softwash to a new stronger or weaker recipe.
- all controls in one place for see at a glance operation
- ease of input via pre-loaded dials. no more calculator style typing
- instantly responds to changes of complex combinations
- works in both Litres and US Gallons
- tested for Protan and Deutan colourblind users
- links to SoftwashingUK website

Take this scenario
You started with a 1% soft wash recipe of 50 gal (or litres)  for a deck clean and you’re left with 13 gallons.

You get a call from a prospective customer to clean their roof. Past experience tells you a 4% soft wash recipe is needed, but what about your leftover mix at 1%?.

Do you waste time and effort driving back to base to transfer into a standby tank?
You could consider the 13 gal as just water, top up the tank and start again.  
But that’s throwing away the value of the mix and raising your overhead.

Soft Wash Calculator App to the rescue.

You get to the new job and it requires 100 gal / litres.
Switch into remix mode , confirming the 13 gal already in the tank
Move the dials to your new recipe and the app immediately updates the different amounts to add in front of your eyes including the correct amount of extra surfactant.

You now have a 100 gal / litres tank of 4% soft wash recipe ready for your roof clean job!

Not forgetting you’ve saved money too, all without stress and uncertainty . Don’t underestimate what confident calmness has on your customer putting out referrals.

The same applies if you have a 4% recipe left in your tank and you need to dilute it down to 2%. Again the app will tell you how.

Softwashing calculator will also work for any chemical recipe. For instance you can use it for Sodium Hypochlorite, Bleach, Biocide , TFR traffic film remover and degreaser. Even the mathematically-challenged rocket scientist can top up their booster tanks to new fuel mixes after launch delays caused by changing weather conditions.

Using this app you will know exactly what chemical strength to put on any surface giving you the confidence and the knowledge of a professional soft washer and you’ll save money as well.

So if you have little knowledge of how to mix a soft wash recipe then this app is for you.
If you have little knowledge of how to remix a soft wash recipe then this app is for you.
If you want to save money when mixing a soft wash recipe then this app is for you.

This app is also backward compatible to devices running iOS7. We've done this so you can re-purpose an old iPhone 4 or iPod Touch 5  for what could be hazardous work environments. Just toss one in your cleaning van's toolkit.

Once you learn the methods and procedures of how to apply the soft wash to the different surfaces that need cleaning you’ll be unstoppable!

The app also has  a guide to what percentage for what surface. And if you are the lucky owner of a Clever Injector it will remind you the correct setting for the job.
However you should always consider and risk assess what soft wash recipe you need to clean the surface.

** A major iOS code-base change may require a re-purchase. The appiverse at the time will confirm our promise that we won't do so unless the necessity is apparent.
