What is "Biowash" - Definition & Explanation

Biowash is a wet, permanent finish that is usually done before dyeing. It is also referred to as bio-polishing, and is done only to cellulosic fabrics. During this process, enzymes are applied to the fabric under acidic conditions and at a high temperature to weaken fibers that would normally pill, and instead of pilling, they readily break-off.
