Over the last few years, there have been a fair number of companies offering stain blocking/resisting technology for or on clothing. But very few of them were able to satisfy people/customers. But now, there’s a new fabric softener technology called Sofft that never lets your cloths have stain.
Retired chemist Greg Van Buskirk has created this new fabric softener technology. Buskirk has mentioned that Sofft, which is a play on the words “soft” and “off,” can prevent both water- and oil-based stains from sticking to clothing fibers.
Here’s how it works:
- Positively charged molecules seek out the fibers of the clothes rather than detergent molecules, as do traditional fabric softeners.
- These positively charged molecules form a “soft ionic bond” with the negatively charged fiber molecules creating a “co-operative attraction”.
- Thermal energy in the dryer activates the molecules and causes them to “face outward” and soften fabrics, repel stains, reduce wrinkles and leave a clean, fresh scent.
