If detergents were acidic rather than basic, can we still achieve a clean surface? What would be more effective? Strong acid or a weak acid? How would the result of cleaning be different if an acid of pH 4, for example, is used? Is it possible to achieve the same result with an acid and a base, or even if they are both present in a detergent?
