Durable Water Repellent Finish (DWR)
How DWR works?

When a DWR coating is applied to a surface, it increases the liquid contact angle of the garment,greater than 90 degree . This “suspends” the liquids, forming them into round droplets.The round shape limits the amount of surface area the droplet comes in contact with, allowing the droplet to bead and roll off the surface easily.

DWR diminish in performance due to a number of factors—dirt, body oils, abrasion and repeated launderings. Often they can be revived by a washing and a few minutes of tumbling in a clothes dryer set on low or medium heat. With heavily used garments, DWRs eventually need to be reapplied by a spray-on or wash-in product.

Maintaining DWR
Wash the garment with an additive-free detergent or soap. You can use regular laundry detergent, but you may have to give it an extra rinse or two to get rid of any residue. Do not use liquid detergents or delicate detergents as they contain fabric softeners that can impede the effectiveness of the DWR finish.Machine wash your garments using the machine's complete cycle.Repeat the rinse cycle once or twice to ensure all soapy residue is removed.Dry at medium-hot setting, and let the garment cycle for 15 minutes after it's dry to revive the original DWR finish. If you have an iron with a cool synthetic setting, you can lightly iron the garment to perk up the DWR treatment.



Why Do Clothes Smell?

Sweat is the leading cause of smell in our clothes.Interestingly, sweat itself has no smell but it’s the bacteria feeding on it that produces.

Turms products are coated with silver nano-particles which in the presence of sweat releases an infinite supply of positively charged silver ions across fabric. So during sweating more & more silver ions are produced which penetrate the surface of negatively charged bacteria and disrupt the cell division. Silver ions prevent the bacteria from breeding and prevent the t-shirt from smelling permanently for long periods of time.
