A Bachelor’s Dream Come True

One of the great levellers in our time-pressed world is that we all need to bathe, and we all need to clean our clothes. But today a new technology promises to make the latter a little less imperative. Halo Source Corp., based in Seattle, has developed technology to keep clothes fresh for days, even with repeated wearing.

Halo’s development is an antimicrobial technology that uses a polymer to bond chlorine atoms to cotton fabrics and cotton blends. Under this patented system, the chlorine atoms work to prevent the growth of bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms — all known offenders to the sensitive nose. The result? You can wear those sweat socks again and again, and they’ll remain fresh as a daisy.

Best of all, the technology gets recharged by periodic laundering with bleach. Says Paul Budlong, Halo’s marketing manager, this is the “first major innovation to hit textiles since permanent press 30 years ago.”

The first products to appear using Halo’s technology will be socks, which are due from Halo in the first quarter of this year. Following that, look for athletic clothing, towels and dishcloths, as well as medical linens and kitchen equipment. Visit www.halosource.com.
