NOVEL WASHING STUDY OF STAINED WOOLEN FABRIC (HAVING STAINS OF BOOT POLISH AND HAIR COLOR DYE) WITH BUTANOL DRIVEN AMYLASE LOADED BSANPS AS BIO-ACTIVE NANO-WOOL SHAMPOO ADDITIVESAbstract
Amylase has been exploited in textile, leather, paper, and detergent industries for washing and desizing of fabrics. It was reported to immobilize on to various compatible matrices by adopting various methods to increase its thermal and storage stability. Its immobilization onto bovine serum albumin (BSA) was observed to be very significant to synthesis its non-toxic and low-cost BSA loaded nanoparticles (BSANPs). In this designed washing study, Cicer aritenium amylase loaded butanol driven BSA nanoparticles (BSANPs) were used which were synthesized by using the desolvation method. These synthesized BSANPs were made bio-active with standardized 35U of alkaline protease for their biodegradation to allow the controlled release bound amylase. Then, this bio-active amylase loaded BSANPs were used as nano-wool shampoo additives with chosen woolen shampoo named, Perwoll Shampoo to test the stain removal efficacy from stained woolen fabric without affecting the delicacy and softness of the chosen fabric. In this study, chosen stains were comprised of daily routine stains of boot polish and hair color dye cream named, kiwi leather extra shine black and garnier nutrisse nourishing color crème black respectively. Sometimes, these stains are very difficult to wash off from the woolen/cashmere fabric or required couple of pre-washing practices. So, keeping this domestic or industrial washing problem, chosen stains are selected very thoughtfully. And, from this washing study, effective washing observations were carried out to wash off the selected stains form woolen fabric when washed with chosen wool shampoo along with bio-active prepared butanol driven amylase bound BSANPs solution as compared their washing with chosen wool shampoo alone.
