Household cleansers are changing critically in last decades. Newer active materials of vegetable origin are replacing conventional active ingredients like acid slurry and alpha olefin sulphonates. In the present research work we have developed a novel polymeric surfactants based on liquid glucose, sorbitol and some organic acids. The idea is to replace fossil fuel based raw materials with renewable materials like liquid glucose and sorbitol. Mole ratios, reaction condition and order of addition have been standardized and a polymer suitable for dish wash liquid has been developed. In all the formulations reported in Table-2 we use 20% polymer successfully. The other ingredients are common ingredients. The physicochemical properties of dish wash liquid are reported in Table-3. Our samples are excellent in respect to foam height and surface tension reduction. The surface tension reduction is better than commercial products. Various household experiments were conducted to check our products as a dish wash liquid. Our products are on par with commercial samples. These samples were evaluated from some housewives and the details of results were reported in the table given below.
