The usage of antimicrobial textile products is aims to prevent microbial contamination and improving environmental hygiene. Antimicrobial agents are applied to textiles fabric that inhibit and kill the microbes when they become in contact with finished surface. Antimicrobial textiles are being utilizing continuously hygienically, where textiles surface is anticipated to contact with microbes. Owing to vastly diverse applications of antimicrobial textile products and intended usages, significant progress in developing novel application methods of antimicrobial agents has been accomplished in recent years. The efficacy of antimicrobial property also majorly depends application method beside nature and concentration of antimicrobial agent. Various antimicrobial agents require different application method on to textiles where they can maximum antimicrobial action. This article critically summarizes the potential applications techniques for finishing textiles with antimicrobial agents.
