The activity of Four commercial types of household detergents; Dettol, Clorex, Elrajih and Jett were assessed against Staphylococcus aureus. Filter paper disks were impregnated with 100%, 50% and 25% concentration of each detergent and applied on Mueller-Hinton Agar plates inoculated with S. aureus. After incubation at 37â‚’C for 24 hours inhibition zones were recorded. The largest inhibition zone (37 mm to 25 mm) was obtained by Dettol while the smallest one (13 to 7 mm) was obtained by Elrajih
