The use of enzymes to clean laundry, and hence the invention of laundry detergent, was introduced in the early 20th century by Otto Rohm. Mr. Rohm founded Röhm & Haas in Germany in 1907, and his research on using enzymes in technical applications became a revolution in the use of washing detergents in 1914. Today they are chemically produced by running electricity through salt water to produce sodium hydroxide (NaOH) or caustic soda and potassium hydroxide (KOH) or caustic potash. These are the most commonly used alkalies in soaps and detergents. Lavender was widely used in Rome, both for scenting water and as a medicine. So soap is quite old. A detergent used in the same way as soap was also used in ancient China (not using fat as ordinary soap); but this was soon replaced by soap. The Wisk brand was introduced in 1956 as the first liquid laundry detergent which marked a huge step forward in the laundry landscape away from messy powders.
