Advantages of synthetic detergents over soaps

Synthetic detergents have several advantages over soaps.

  1. Synthetic detergents can be used even in hard water whereas some of the soap gets wasted if the water is hard.
  2. Synthetic detergents can be used even in acidic medium as they are the salts of strong acids and are not decomposed in acidic medium.
  3. Synthetic detergents have a stronger cleansing action than soaps.
  4. Synthetic detergents  are more soluble in water than soaps.
  5. Synthetic detergents are prepared from the hydrocarbons obtained from petroleum. This saves vegetable oils which are otherwise used for making soaps
