In response to the increased market presence of liquid detergents which now account for 60 percent
of all detergents sold the American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists (AATCC), Research
Triangle Park, N.C., has expanded its line of detergents for the textile industry with the approval
of the Standard Reference Liquid Laundry Detergent. Available with and without brighteners, it is
designed for use in applicable consumer testing, and is similar to nationally marketed liquid
cleaning, color care and fabric appearance products.
