Author(s): Apoorva Gupta And Dr. Archana Singh
In this study an attempt has been made to approach of developing Mosquito repellency finishes using natural herbs. The herbal extracts of sweet lime peel was applied on cotton fabric directly by using pad dry cure method. The Mosquito repellency finishes of the finished fabric was assessed against mosquito. To enhance the durability of the finished fabric, wash durability test has been carried out and the results showed good efficiency of finishes even after 6 domestic washing cotton fabric. This paper described the textile materials selection, methods of imparting the repellent into the fabrics, repellency test of treated fabrics. The assessments used in the treated textile are summarized and conditions of the assessment of repellency relative to this discussion are presented.
