The global textile industry has an ongoing need for improved softening products.  Current materials systems, including those with siloxane polymers, exhibit certain limitations such as yellowing, high cost, and low softening efficiency.

Investigations into fabric softening mechanisms invoke molecular modeling tools to simulate siloxane polymer and cotton fiber interactions at the molecular level.

This research describes how certain polymer types exhibit fundamentally enhanced siloxane and fiber interactions within particular pH ranges. This research adds insight into efforts to understand fabric-softening phenomena.
