Zylo Cleaner made by Industrial Soap Company is an example of a nonionic detergent. It is a synthetic detergent containing neither soap nor any kind of abrasives or acids. It is easy to rinse and an effective cleaner for removing grease and oil.

Nonionic detergents do not ionize, meaning they do not carry any charge when they are dissolved in water. They can be safely used on all types of surfaces. Common examples of nonionic soaps are the dish detergents Ivory Liquid and Joy made by Proctor & Gamble. Nonionic detergents are primarily available in liquid form. They produce less foam than anionic detergents do.
