The ability of an item to break down into natural materials over time without harm to the environment.
The formation of bubbles in a liquid
The amount of time required to properly remove the debris from the item that is being cleaned. Cleaning cycles will vary, but typically will fall in the 5 – 20 minute range.
The process of removing trapped air bubbles in the cleaning solution

A substance which reduces surface tension thereby increasing the spreading or wetting ability of the cleaning liquid.
A purposeful deviation from the cleaning frequency designed to enhance cavitation activity.
