Researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, have enlisted a natural ally to fight the foul smell that emanates from clothes after they have been worn. The fabric is first given an anti-microbial treatment to keep odour-causing germs at bay, which may fail to go even after washing. The material used for such treatment is normally of synthetic origin. Researchers have isolated a compound from neem seeds, which when blended with glycol, could foster anti-microbial properties lasting upto 25 washes.
