Machine Wash – Commercial

Purpose and Goals

  • Evaluate and compare the durability of multiple textiles in laboratory-controlled washing. 


  • Commercial Laundering
    • Laundering cycles will be performed in a non-continuous (not high-throughput) commercial machine according to the manufacturer’s instructions or AATCC TM 96 unless otherwise requested. 
    • Please inquire for currently available commercial machine models.
  • If multiple textiles are submitted, please specify whether they should be laundered separately from each other (each with separate ballasts) for an additional fee.
  • Please note: upon request, these tests can include documentation, auditing, and archiving for an additional fee, but are not eligible for GLP compliance due to the off-site location of the Testing Facility.

Data Analysis

  • Data will be analyzed to determine the consistency between replicate textile swatches.
  • Data will be analyzed to determine the differences between each set of laundered material compared to the original state material control at each wash interval (such as every 10 cycles).
