1. Rinse wash:
The wash which is done by using water and slightly detergent with anti back stainer is called rinse wash. Here, the shade is especially dark and not too much different from its raw denim. This type of wash has some problems, among those back staining is the most common.
2. Resin wash:
In the case of resin wash, we used resin in the bath. At first, we add resin in the bath then loading the apparel for a certain period of time. Finally, we can get a hard garment.
3. Softener silicon wash:
In the case of silicon wash, we used softener and silicon together. Here, we used silicon for the surface slipper and softener for the softness of cellulose. As a result, we can get both hand feel and softness for the garment. The softener can be cationic and nonionic.
4. Garment wash or normal wash:
This type of wash is a combination of rinse wash and softener wash. Here, the first time completed rinse wash and then softener wash.
5. Enzyme wash:
The wash where the enzyme is used is called an enzyme wash. Here, we used enzyme for abrasion of garments. Enzyme washed garments are looking very nice to see. The enzyme may be neutral or acidic according to the requirements of shade.
6. Medium stone enzyme wash:
In the case of medium stone enzyme wash, we used enzyme and pumice stone together for washing. Here, we have to avoid the damages of edges. Heavy abrasion is produced in this wash. This wash is specially applied for denim and the time required about 20-30 minutes.
7. Heavy stone enzyme wash:
Here also used enzyme and stone together for washing. But the time required about 50-60 minutes to achieve the required shade.
8. Bleaching wash:
Bleaching wash means that a bleaching chemical is used in the water while washing in a tumble washer. Strict washing time is a requirement with such kinds of wash. Otherwise, the garment may be over bleached and the color cannot be reversed.
9. Enzyme bleach wash:
In the case of enzyme bleach wash, we used the enzyme process first then the bleaching process by using chlorine or non-chlorine bleach. The shade of enzyme bleaching wash is light. Here more color will be cut down. So, extra caution should be needed here.
10. Acid wash:
Acid wash is done by using potash and pumic stone. At first, we have to dip the stone in the potash solution then slightly dry the stone and wash it in a garment washing machine. Finally, we will achieve an uneven look at the garment.
11. Towel bleach wash:
Towel bleach wash is done by using Japanese bleach and a towel. At first, we have to dip a towel in the bleach solution. After squeezing, those towels loading into the drying machine and tumbled with the garment. Finally, we get an uneven look in the garment.
12. Tie wash:
Tie wash is done by tiding the garment then wash. As a result, we will achieve an uneven crease in the garment.
13. Rubber ball wash:
Rubber ball wash is nothing but a garment and softener wash. In this process, the garment will be softer and at the same time seam abrasion will come. We used this type of wash if needed more hand fell for the garment.
