|Abstract:||The effects of an easy-care finish, namely DMeDHEU and DMeDH EU plus silicone softener, on physical properties of bleached cotton fabric have been studied. It is obvious that easy-care finish i mparts marked increase i n the fabric crease resistance along with the increase in static and kinetic frictions. The application of silicone softener on top of the easy-care finished fabric decreases the fabric friction and a further i ncrease in the crease recovery angle is also observed. Easy-care finishing marginally changes the bending length, which is reduced to some extent by the application of silicone softener.|
