Germ-killing fabric

July 30, 2009





G&K Services offers BioSmart a patent-pending textile technology from Milliken that binds chlorine bleach (when used in accordance with its EPA-registered label instructions) to textiles and reduces the spread of common bacteria and viruses from growing on textile products. Independent testing has demonstrated that when BioSmart fabrics are laundered according to care instructions with EPA-registered chlorine bleach, the chlorine killed 99.9% of common bacteria and viruses, including salmonella, E. coli, staph and Hepatitis A.
