Chinese Scientists from Shanghai Jiao Tong University have come up with a special unique cotton material that can clean itself automatically when left under ordinary sunlight. The fabric is a mixture of nanoparticles coating made from a compound of titanium dioxide, nitrogen, iodine and silver.
A test experiment clearly proved that the special coating was able to remove an orange stain when exposed to sunshine for only 2 hours. The coating remained intact even after washing and drying the clothes.
Researchers Mingce Long and Deyong Wu recently published their findings in the American Chemical Society Journal Applied Material & Interfaces. A cool invention but it will take some time to become available in the shopping mall. So just be patient and wait guys.!!
