AATCC Test Method 135, Dimensional Change of Fabrics After Home Laundering

Scope: Determines the dimensional changes of garments when subjected to home laundering procedures used by consumers.

  • Method is for fabric not yet make into a garment
  • Sample is mark with benkmarks before home laundering
  • Then laundered 3 times total, then the benchmarks are measured again
  • Before and after laundering benchmarks are compared
