Detergency evaluation of fabrics soiled with solid india ink and commercial liquid india ink - Polyester, cotton and polyester/cotton blended soiled cloth

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The stain adhered on clothing with India ink could damage the appearance performance of clothing. Since the removal of soil is very difficult, a user gives up the use of clothing in many cases. In order to recover the function of clothes, removal of the India ink stain was considered from the viewpoint of the resources and environment that are the subject of a present-day clothes life. The soiled fabrics were made using white polyester, cotton, and polyester/cotton blended fabrics. The reflectance of the whole staining fabrics with solid India ink was lower. In the case of spot stained fabrics, no difference among the kinds of India ink was found. The soiled fabrics were washed out using bleach, dispersing agent and detergent. The significant difference was found between detergency and the kind of India ink, fiber, and the staining method (ANOVA, p<0.05). All of detergency was low and removal of India ink was difficult. When the kind of India ink compared the detergency, the detergency of the soiled fabrics with solid India ink was significantly higher (p< 0.05). The detergency of whole or spot staining fabric changed with the kind of a fiber or India ink. NaClO reduces function of protection colloid of a soot particle. It is thought that dispersing agent and surfactant are removing the soot particle from fabric.
