Bacteria-proof fabric can create a more sterile environment, not to mention it could save you lots of time and money. Everything from odorless garments that don't need not be washed to bacteria-proof sheets that repel microorganisms.
The fabric in SilverAir Socks contains strands of silver that neutralize the bacteria that cause smelly feet. The socks are made of acrylic, nylon, spandex and feature ventilation on the sides for air to keep the foot dry.
This new technology allows you to use the same pair of socks, in extreme conditions, say its creators.
The socks cost $18 plus shipping.
Currently, HockeyDB reports the project is seeking financing via Kickstarter, and in it's first 30 days already their first goal of $ 35,000 has been bypassed, already accumulating $ 138,427 so far.
How about fabric that guard against infections?
After eight years of work, Dr. Aharon Gedanken created a fabric completely aseptic to the presence of microorganisms. A giant step that has enabled the manufacturer of textiles for hospitals to produce sheets that are resistant to various types of infectious disease.
If health centers utilize this type of sheets, towels, pajamas, etc., much of hospital infections would become a nightmare of the past.
According to statistics by the World Health Organization, 8.7% of patients admitted to the hospital end up being affected by viruses, fungi and other bacteria.
Professor Aharon Gedanken, ensures that the fabric he created is able to remain absolutely sterile and withstand up to 70 washes, something that has never before been achieved.
The expectations of this science are broad
