Are you suffering from laundry woes?

You can now choose to not change or wash your shirt for days! A US-based company has come up with a shirt which does not require washing or ironing for up to 100 days, and would stay free of odor and wrinkles! This wool science is all about temperature thread dynamics, wicking and cotton comparison.

The clothing industry generates USD7 trillion annually. Hence, the introduction of a wrinkle-free fabric with such sturdiness could create a niche for eco-friendly clothing. However, the chemical formaldehyde, also known as embalming fluid, used in the fabric to give it a wrinkle-resistant consistency could cause mild skin rashes. Should health risks become more prominent in the long-run, consumers would switch back to regular shirts without any hesitation.

How else would such wrinkle-free fabrics reshape the clothing industry?
