Scientific method has been a viable method of acquiring knowledge through the creation and investigation of theories concerning an observable fact. Everyday aspects of the human life depend on the scientific method whether it is opening the door, cleaning up or driving a car to work (O'Leary & Shelly, 2003). It is ever evolving and improving these activities to safer, better and more effective levels than before. Scientific method uses objective reasoning such that when a problem gets realized, research and tests are carried out tests to solve it. The development of a hypothesis helped create a sober and educated guess to suggest a possible answer to the problem at hand. Practical, testable and quantifiable evidence are the basis of the research so as to come up with ways of improving the detergent.
Detergents are a part of everyday life. Scientific method provides step by step directions for helping solve Martha Stewart Clean laundry detergents shortcoming which has appeared on consumer reports as among the worst stain removers. The addition of Hydrogen Peroxide in the detergent will help increase it effectiveness while maintaining its sensitive nature to the consumers and to the environment (Bloch, 2006). Testing the hypothesis will require experiments that will help compare the results of the two types of the detergent. One detergent is the usual Martha Stewart Clean laundry detergent without hydrogen peroxide, and the other has low concentrations of Hydrogen Peroxide. The detergents will be used to clean white clothes of the same fabric, with the same type and amount of stains under controlled conditions.
[...] Through the scientific method, this research paper seeks the response to the subsequent question: What are the ingredients missing in the detergent that reduces its efficacy in removing stains? Hypothesis and the expected outcome of the experiment Hypothesis statement: If safe levels of hydrogen peroxide are added to the detergent, it will increase its ability to clean stains in white fabrics. Hydrogen peroxide is oxygen-based bleaching agent that is gentle and safe on colors (Bloch, 2).006 It removes stains making it an important component of detergents. [...]
[...] Keywords: Detergent, scientific, hypothesis. Everyday Life Scientific Method of a Detergent Brand Scientific method is the incorporation of procedures and techniques used for the systematic acquirement of knowledge, observation, investigation, correction and the assimilation of previous findings regarding a phenomenon (O'Leary & Shelly, 2003). Scientific method is objective, and a scientist's goal should be based and influenced by facts rather than by feelings and emotions. It reduces bias when conducting experiments and analyzing results based on the findings of the experiments, thus increasing the resulting accuracy in the case of an investigation by other scientists.

[...] P = .05 also comprehends the rejection of the null hypothesis. A rejection of the null shows that the result is significant which further implies that it is true that if safe levels of hydrogen peroxide are added to the detergent, it will increase its ability to clean stains in white fabrics. Conclusion Rejection of the null hypothesis indicates accuracy in the experimentation of the effects on the efficiency of the detergent. Retention of the null hypothesis points out inaccuracy of the test, and that would call for a different criterion for conducting this study (Gauch, 2003). [...]
