Preferred Abstract (Original): 
In this study we have investigated the efficiency of surfactants and ligands on cleaning artificially contaminated red, sandy and white chalk soil samples from copper ion. Various concentrations of four different surfactants: Triton, X-100, SDS, Tergitol and Tween 80 were used as washing solution for remediation of contaminated soils. Different concentrations of three different ligands (I- , SCN- and EDTA) along with nonionic surfactant, Triton X-100, were applied as soil washing agents to desorb copper from artificially contaminated soils.
