|Abstract:||The influence of four concentrated liquid softeners, viz. Lenor, Silan, Soupline and Dosia, on the properties of different knitted fabrics has been studied on the basis of textile hand parameters using KTU-Griff Tester. The results show that the rinsing of textile materials with liquid softeners changes the properties of fabrics more significantly as compared to the changes in case of rinsing with pure water. The five parameters, namely pulling force, tangent of the slope angle of curve, pulling work, difference of fabric thickness measured at two different pressure levels and fabric deformation, and a complex parameter determined as the area of pentagonal chart, the axles of which are these five separate parameters, have been used for the evaluation of changes in fabric mechanical properties. Silan is found to be the most efficient softener followed by Lenor, Dosia and Soupline.|
