Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 37, issue 4, 1999, Pages 29~40
Effects of the commercial laundry detergents, fabric softeners, and bleaches on bactericidal activities were studied. Bactericidal activities under various conditions during washing, rinsing, and bleaching were evaluated in terms of minimum inhibitory concentration(MIC) by a broth dilution method. The experiments were carried out using Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli which were usually employed in antibacterial activity tests. The results are summarized as follows : 1. All samples of Powder detergents(10 samples), soaps(7 samples) and fabric softeners(4 samples) were inactive against the Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli. 2. One sample in the liquid detergents(6 samples) showed a very low MIC for Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli., and three samples showed a selective effect for two bacterial strains. 3. Bleaching agent(containing peroxide) did not have bactericidal effect for Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli. but the other(containing chlorine) had the effect for every bacterial strain in standard concentration. 4. All samples showed bactericidal effect above 60

Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 37, issue 4, 1999, Pages 41~58
The purposes of this study were 1) to segment the market based on purchase frequency of products such as apparel, food, home electronics, life commodity in department store and low-price retailing, 2) to identify differences among segments in belief and attitude toward each store, purchase frequency of apparel items in each store and demographic variables. The data were collected via a self-administered questionnaire from 274 married women living in Seoul, Korea and analyzed by factor analysis, cluster analysis, one-way ANOVA and x
-test. The results of this study were as follows: First, using cluster analysis on purchase frequency of products in each store, four groups were identified and labeled as department store patronage/ non-purchasers of apparel in low-price retailing(25.2%), purchasers of apparel in department store and low-price retailing(16.8%), low-price retailing patronage(30.3%) and non-purchasers of products in department store and low-price retailing(27.0%). Second, a series of one-way ANOV As revealed significant differences among four segments on beliefs of low-price retailing(four store attributes: price and variety of apparel product, facilities for convenient shopping, promotion, brand-reputation and fashionability of apparel product) and department store(three store attributes: price and variety of apparel product, facilities for convenient shopping and promotion) and attitude toward low-price retailing and department store. Attitude toward each store was yielded using Fishbein's multiattributes model. There were also significant differences among groups in purchase frequency of seven apparel items in low-price retailing and six apparel items in department store, and six demographic and personal variables(age, educational status, type of husband's occupation, monthly income and housing). Finally, the papers discussed manageral implications for each segments as well as theoretical implications.
