Silver in Clothing

December 28, 2013 Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Google+ Education

Silver inhibits the growth of bacteria and fungi on clothing, such as socks, so is sometimes added to reduce odors and the risk of bacterial and fungal infections. It is incorporated into clothing or shoes either by integrating silver nanoparticles into the polymer from which yarns are made or by coating yarns with silver.The loss of silver during washing varies between textile technologies, and the resultant effect on the environment is not yet fully known
