Paper Title:
Impact of Soft Nursing Care on Drying Efficiency of Cotton Fabric
  Abstract

The performance of heat transfer coefficient, wicking and water vapour permeability (WVP) of cotton fabric were tested after adding amino-functional silicone softening agent in simulating process of home laundry. Meanwhile, the experiment of line drying of fabric soaked in water after spinning was designed to study the impact of soft nursing care on drying efficiency of fabric. The result showed that with the amino-functional silicone softening agent added, handle was improved obviously. With the concentration of softening agent increasing, WVP of fabric increased, while heat transfer coefficient had the opposite result. Wicking effect increased slowly at the beginning and decreased sharply later. It was found that soft nursing care improved the drying efficiency.
