Cleaning agents are substances used to remove dirt. They are used in different ways for different things and have a different name. Most of them are made with the motive to kill microbes. With the increase in the amount of technology and needs in everyone's lives we have been looking for more quantity than quality. People have found different ways to sell things in any way possible that they have started playing with food. For example, apples have a layer of wax for showing a shiny appearance for selling them.[3] Other fruits have been given chemical injections for giving more quantity of the fruit while the quality has gone down miserably. Before we were able to eat the outer layer of fruits, but now all we eat is wax and chemicals. Fruit wash is a cleaning product which is used to remove dirt wax and chemicals from fruits. The point of making these fruit washes is to remove the chemicals by using organic and natural substances and reduce the side effects. [8] [9] In our study we are testing the effect of different natural extracts (with various antibacterial and antioxidant properties) on the microbial growth by checking the Optical density of the washed water sample after adding the extracts.
