Transcript of Orange Fruit Peelings as Tile Cleaner

Chapter 1 Chapter 2 Chapter 4 Chapter 5 Chapter 3 Background of the Study Investigatory Project Orange Fruit Peelings Almost every household contains cleaning solutions with harmful chemicals. The problem today is that we had gone too far in creating cleaning solutions that contain such chemicals that are use every day in daily chores. What most people don’t know is that some cleaning solutions are harmful to the environment and the ozone layer. It is due to this reason that we had decided to focus on the study of creating an eco-friendly cleaning solution using orange fruit peelings and its extracts. With this investigatory project, we aim to find an alternative cleaning solution. We will make a cleaning solution from orange fruit peelings that contain an acid that can fight germs and odors. The vinegar will be the ones that will eliminate the bacteria. Through this, we will be able to successfully create a cleaning solution that is not just for the benefit of man but also for the benefit of the environment. Background of The Study Introduction The orange is a fruit known for its delectable taste, as well as its amazing use in the field of medicine. However, it was soon proved to be more than just food and medicine. It was, in fact, also a fruit for household purposes! And through various digging of information, the researchers found out that it can be specifically used as a tile stain remover. With the citric acid found in the citrus family, it was not deemed impossible. And so went the existence of this project. Hypothesis The created eco-friendly cleaning solution from fruit peelings can be used as a tile stain remover. And there will be no significant difference on the effect of our product from the commercial cleaning solutions. Significance of the Study In our present time, the condition of the world we are living is getting worse most especially the ozone layer, which is getting thinner. According to our research, one of the factors that cause ozone layer in continuing to be thinner is the chemicals and substances that are present in cleaning solutions. Cleaning solutions contains ammonium hydrogen bifluoride and hydrofluoric acid that are hazardous. Significance of the Study
Our main focus and goal is to make a better cleaning solution using orange fruit peelings and vinegar. We choose to produce to lessen the use of hazardous chemicals which is contained by the cleaning solutions. And since it is used every day, we find our project truly amazing if not important. Scope and Limitations The study focused in making a cleaning solution that will both benefit mankind and environment using orange fruit peelings as its main ingredient. The vinegar will be the substances to kill and repel the bacteria. Most importantly, the product should be safe for every individual and will not damage the environment. Methodology Materials Canning Jar Vinegar Procedures 1. Boil 3 cups of vinegar. Orange Peels Spray Bottle 2. Pour it over into the orange peels packed in a canning jar. Strainer 3. Let it sit for three weeks. 4. Strain the infused vinegar. 5. Pour the infused vinegar into clean spray bottle. Water 6. Add water to fill the bottle The Respondents of the Study The researchers chose a set of 15 respondents that will test the effectiveness of the product. The scent, odor, color, appearance and ability to remove stains will be the basis for the effectiveness of the product. Table 1.1 in the paperwork shows the average for the product's effectiveness in terms of Scent and Odor is 4.33 which in rating scale corresponds to a Very Good rating. With the Color and Appearance, the rating is 4 or a Very Good rating. With the ability to remove stains, a rating of 4.27 or a Very Good was given. Summary Through this study that investigates the potential of a cleaning solution that has been created using vinegar and orange peels, the researchers found out that the cleaning solution or the output of the study when sprayed to the stain on the surface of the tile is effective. Through this simple method of infusion, a cleaning solution from vinegar and orange peels was produced. The infused vinegar was sprayed on tiles with stain. After the experimentation, it was revealed that the product is effective. Conclusion The data presented on the previous chapter indicates that the output of this study is effective. There is no significant difference between the effectivity of the cleaning solution or stain remover that has been created using orange peels and vinegar to the effectivity of the commercial products available in the market. The researchers therefore conclude that our product can be used as cleaning solution or stain remover. Recommendation Through this infusion method, the researchers were able to produce a stain remover that is very effective compared to the chemical stain removers that affect one’s health and the environment. The researchers therefore recommend this stain remover and for the others who are interested to have more experimentation about it to improve the quality of the product. Tile Stain Remover Trials 1 2 In this trial, we used coffee stain. Now, in this second trial we used charcoal stain. Conceptual and Research Literature Orange, the round-shaped fruit, immensely rich in vitamins and minerals, is one of the favorite fruits of the world. This fruit is supposed to have originated in Southeast Asia. It belongs to the genus citrus, the other famous members of which include the lemon, lime and grapefruit… The fruit is covered by a bright yellow to orange-colored skin, known as the epicarp and a thick, spongy mesocarp that lies beneath the epicarp. The internal part is called the pulp, which is divided into several individual segments that contain the actual pulp and the juicy fruit. Conceptual and Research Literature Today, they are of the most sought after fruits of the world, not only for its great taste but also for its nutritional value. It is a rich source of vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, folic acid, vitamin B6, flavonoids, pecitin and dietary fiber. Besides, it also contains a significant amount of minerals like potassium salt, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, copper etc. It does not contain harmful cholesterol and fats. It does not contain harmful cholesterol and fats. It can be of immense help in many ailments like high blood pressure, hardening of the arteries, constipation, heart disease and stomach ulcer. Besides, it contains antioxidants, which are effective in protecting the body from harmful free radicals. Conceptual and Research Literature Citrus fruits like lemon and oranges have citric acid. Citric acid is a weak organic acid found in citrus fruits. It is a natural preservative and is also used to add acidic (sour) taste to foods and soft drinks. It also serves as an environmentally benign cleaning agent and acts as an antioxidant. Citric acid exists in a variety of fruits and vegetables, but it is most concentrated in lemons and limes, where it can complete as much as eight percent of the dry weight of the fruit. Conceptual and Research Literature Researchers on cleaning products were concentrated on the safety of the users and environment, ease of use and lower production costs. Conceptual and Research Literature Based on this research, cleaning solutions are often hazardous and as well as corrosive. The group found an alternative cleaning solution from orange peelings that contain citric acid that fight both germs and odors.
