the main component of fabric softener is cationic surfactant. The easiest way to identify them: they are all very & quot; Acid & quot; The pH value is very low. Next, let’s quickly learn about the function of fabric softener in
, which is like a protective film evenly on the surface of fabric fibers. Due to the adsorption of softener on the fiber surface, the friction coefficient between fibers is reduced, the mobility is enhanced, and the inherent smoothness, extension and compression properties of fibers are restored, So the fabric becomes more soft, fluffy and elastic. In the same way, because of the softener & lt; Protective film; It can reduce the friction between fibers and improve the electrostatic phenomenon of cotton, wool, silk, especially chemical fiber fabrics to a certain extent.
