What is "Antimicrobial" - Definition & Explanation

Antimicrobial is a wet finishing technique that is durable. It is an application of chemicals that inhibit the growth of odor causing bacteria and fungi. This is of particular use on wicking synthetic performance fabrics, which tend to accumulate perspiration and wetness, breeding microorganisms. It is also used to help alleviate asthmatic reactions by creating a hostile environment for dust mites.
