Abstract:

Perfumes are generally used to enhance the attitude of the person. Deodorants and perfumes are designed to be applied directly to the skin. Some people with sensitive skin may find that their skin does get irritated if they use too much perfume and hence apply perfume directly to their clothes. Silk is one of the most luxurious fabrics and is used on all occasions. If perfume is applied directly on fabric, it may cause a stain or discoloration and may spoil a costly garment. Although there is a study on the effect of perfume on cotton fabrics, there is no study about the effect of perfume on silk fabrics in the literature. Therefore this study aims to investigate the effects of perfume on dyed silk fabrics and is the first work on this subject. Mechanical properties like tensile strength, pilling and abrasion resistance were investigated, and the change in colour under washing, dry cleaning and perspiration were recorded.
