From washing clothes and linens at home to commercial establishments that launder tons of linens … laundry, simple as it may seem, is NOT a simple process when it comes to maintaining a sanitized end product that persists overtime.
Textiles are prone to contamination from nasty bacteria and fungi that often cause odor, staining and discoloration on fabrics, including molds and mildew. This has become a significant problem. Goldshield's (GS5 and GS75) antimicrobial agents can be applied to textiles such as linens, bed sheets, curtains, certain clothing, shower and privacy curtains, and many other fabrics. GS's antimicrobial agent becomes affixed to the textile through a covalent bonding action and will remain active for three months or when odors, staining or discoloration reappear.
Goldshield has been used on Military fabrics; hospital linens and privacy curtains, socks, underwear [both mens and womens], active apparley products, from marine cushions to bathroom curtains and liners. To inhibit these bacteria and molds that cause these problems we recommend you add GS 75 or GS 5 diluted to 1% to carpeting, as you don't want these microbes to be inhaled or picked up by kids on their hands.
