In garments washing there are two processes. One is a wet process and another is a dry process. The process which we do in the wet condition is called the wet process. In the wet process, we use different types of garments wash. Now we will describe them as follows:

Rinse Wash

Rinse wash is done only by water and slight detergent and backstair. This shade is dark and not so much different from its raw denim. This process has some problems like colorfastness to dry rubbing, wet rubbing, and washing failure.

Garments wash is a combination of rinse wash and softener wash. At first rinse, the wash is done and then softener wash is completed. In this wash, the color will not reduce. Generally, the garments remain almost tonally unchanged. Garments wash also has some problems like colorfastness to dry rubbing, wet rubbing and washing failure.

According to the requirement of shade, the enzyme may be neutral or acidic. It is one kind of laundering process that uses enzymes to clean or finish the garments or textiles. This wash is especially done for jeans. Enzyme wash also carries economic and environmental benefits. On an industrial scale, it has replaced laborious laundering techniques such as stone washing.

This wash is like an acid wash. It is one kind of an uneven wash. We get uneven shade from this wash. At first, we cut the towel into small pieces and dip it in the bleaching solution. After that, we take these out from the solution and slightly dry them. Then the garments and towels are tumbled in another machine for a certain period of time. After tumbling we have to neutral the garments properly. Now we will see that some places of garments are discolored or changed in color where the towel pieces touched the garments.
