Softline Partners with GuardIn
GARDENA, Calif.-Softline Home Fashions has formed an exclusive partnership with GuardIn Natural Fabric Protection for the use of its technology to make fabric anti-bacterial and flame-resistant, as well as stain- and water-repellent.
GuardIn's technologies include GuardInFresh, which is derived from all-natural, food-safe essential oils and minerals, and which is used to inhibit bacteria and associated odors. FlameGuardIn, the flame-resistant treatment, serves as a replacement for deca bromine and antimony oxide treatments.
The WaterRepellent treatment contains up to 10 times fewer fluorocarbons than traditional water and stain repellents, according to a Softline statement.
