Challenges facing the garment industry
Most textile fabrics are prone to mold, especially natural fabrics. Most garments require ironing before packaging. Ironing increases the moisture content of clothes and provides favorable conditions for mold growth.
Some fabrics and clothing contain formaldehyde (commonly found in clothing with a strong smell). Formaldehyde is used in fiber products, mainly as a dyeing auxiliary and a resin finishing agent to improve the anti-wrinkle and anti-shrinkage effect, so that the color of the textile is bright and the color of the fabric can be maintained. The durability of printing and dyeing can make cotton fabrics wrinkle-proof, shrink-proof and flame-retardant.
Here are some of the challenges that the garment industry often faces:
The clothing industry mainly uses fungicides or mildew inhibitors to solve the problem of mold growth in clothing. This method treats the symptoms but not the root cause, and does not meet the requirements of environmental protection. The use of desiccant can fundamentally solve the problem of moisture in clothing, thereby blocking the conditions for mold growth, and it is a safe and environmentally friendly solution. The use of deodorants can absorb formaldehyde in clothing fabrics and eliminate the pungent smell and formaldehyde hazards of clothing.
