How does Deodorization work? 
The deodorization test measures how efficient a textile material is in reducing unpleasant odour chemicals, e.g. ammonia, acetic acid, isovaleric acid and nonenal from body odour caused by sweat and odours from garbage, cigarettes and toilets. Usually, an antimicrobial finish prevents garments from having unpleasant odours. Chemicals which can inhibit the growth of odour-generating bacteria can be applied to clothing and textile materials to reduce unpleasant odours on the fabric materials.
