What effects can microbes have on textiles?
From socks to bed sheets, textiles are everywhere in our daily life. However, without proper protection, the accumulation of bacteria can cause stains and odor build-up. This decreases the useful life of the textile, leading to increased landfill loading.
With 92 million tons of textile waste produced annually, brands and manufacturers seek innovative technologies that actively contribute to more sustainable textiles.

Added to the textile during manufacturing, Microban technology inhibits stain and odor-causing bacterial growth for the product's life.
