The effects of commercially available softeners for cotton products were quantified. The compressibility (C),compressive elastic modulus (CEM), surface frictional coefficient (SFC) and the directional anisotropy (DA), were measured for a cotton towel that was treated with three commercially available softeners, D, R and H after 10 or 20 washings. It was found in samples of 20 times washings that C was improved to 115 %, CEM to 1.20 % with D but not with R and H, SF to 85 %, and DA to about 90 % in both directions.
