ABSTRACT

Antimicrobial agents are applied on textiles to suppress or control the growth of microbes on textiles. Cotton fabric taken for this study was finished with triclosan and culture filtrate of Streptomyces fradiae CQLW to develop antibacterial property. Antibacterial activity of the culture filtrate was checked via well diffusion method. The impact and effectiveness of finishing methods (pad-dry and dip-dry) were also determined. Antibacterial activity was evaluated after completion of each laundering cycle and after 5 cycles was found to gradually decrease. Various properties like geometrical, mechanical and physical was evaluated to know the changes from their normal values Pad-dry method was found to be effective in improvement of physical parameters. Obtained results were subjected to ANOVA to check for the significance of the study.

Keywords: Pad-Dry method, Culture filtrate, Dip-dry method, Laundering, Physical parameters, Streptomyces fradiae CQLW, Triclosan.
