Abstract: This study evaluates efficiency of reetha, a biodegradable natural surfactant in aqueous solution, to solubilize sericin and other foreign materials in Muga silk fabric. CMC value of reetha solution in aqueous medium was found to be 0.017 g/cc (1.7 wt %) and surface tension (ST) of aqueous medium remained constant at 38.6 mN/m. Under degumming trials, weight loss was found to be 18.28% at CMC value of reetha solution treated for 36 h at RT. It was observed that at CMC value of reetha solution, ST was least and degumming maximum.
