These molecules will help get rid of dirt from clothing as they jerk and they will drift out of water at the end of each wash cycle. The other two ingredients are enzymes and bleaches. Enzymes help accelerate the process of decomposing food particles that cling to clothing, while peroxide-containing bleaches help to brighten fabrics.
