Bio-wash is a wet, permanent finish that we usually do before or after of fabric dyeing. It is also known as bio-polishing, and is done only with cotton fabrics.
During this process, we add some acid and enzymes to the fabric. The process is takes place at very high temperatures to avoid pilling, rough surface to make a soft and silky fabric. This gives the fabric a superior colour brightness and glossier appearance.
Bio-wash increases the softness texture to the fabric and there will be no rough ends anymore on the fabric. It also increases the fabric life with some more durability. At early times, chemicals were used to apply over fabric but that decrease the life of fabric. Bio-wash makes the fabric more shine and increases the luster compare to chemical.
