Question

List two problems that arise due to the use of detergents instead of soaps.

Solution

Two problems arise because of the use of detergents instead of soap:-

i. Soaps are biodegradable, while detergents are non-biodegradable; hence, detergents accumulate in the environment and cause problems.

ii. Certain phosphate additives are added to detergents. These phosphate additives act as nutrients for algae which form a thick green scum over the river water and upset the animal life in the river.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
