Colchicine, an alkaloid derived from autumn crocus (Colchicum autumnale) had been used as a hard abstergent
for more than 2000 years, since ancient Egypt and Greece.
Also, an additional experiment using 1% solution of dish abstergent
"Fairy" after 5 hours and 24 hours post introduction of bacterial combination was performed Using abstergent
after 5 hours, the quantity of microorganisms decreased from [10.sup.8] CFU/g to [10.sup.5] CFU/g, while after 24 hours the substantial effect of cell concentration ([10.sup.7] CFU/g) was not detected.
