People who live in hot and humid climates sweat a lot and leave behind a bad odor that can irritate others. In fact, no one is to be blamed especially if the person giving off the scent has made good use of deodorants. It has been scientifically proven that when we sweat, microbial bacteria are produced that emit this rather unpleasant odor. Smells depend from person to person. Some may smell not as bad as others. The smells sometimes become unbearable, especially if you are in a public place, leading to some kind of embarrassment. Good educated and wise people do not want to lose their pride because of the bad smell. So if you are among these gentle people, here is some news for you. A new type of yarn is being produced in the textile industry that is used to make odor resistant fabrics.

The thread is called body fresh thread which incorporates an antimicrobial agent using a new technology. This is advanced silver-based technology to inhibit the growth of bacteria, fungus, mold, and other microorganisms that can cause odors, discoloration, and deterioration of various consumer and commercial products. By incorporating this technology into the yarn, clothing manufacturers can have a fine microfiber yarn that promises increased freshness through effective antimicrobial protection. Antimicrobial microfibers help control odor, making the product more attractive to athletes and outdoor enthusiasts. The companies are studying the demand for fabrics made from this yarn in the antibacterial yarn market and tested various antimicrobials in search of a product that could provide high-temperature stability and resistance to laundering. Nylon 6.6 yarn is used during the fiber formation process to incorporate the body’s new fresh yarn technology. This new technology also offers benefits in terms of durability, as the fabric will retain its antimicrobial properties for at least 50 washes.
