Author(s) : LAURSEN P. K.

Summary

COMPARISONS ARE MADE BETWEEN COTTON AND POLYPROPYLENE SOCKS IN A STORE AT A TEMPERATURE OF 283 K (10 DEG C). THE INITIAL TRIAL TOOK PLACE OVER 6 WEEKS, THE COTTON SOCKS BEING INFERIOR IN THE NUMBER OF BACTERIA PER SQ CM. AFTER 4 WEEKS COTTON SHOWED A MARKED DETERIORATION WITH FUNGI. A SECONDTRIAL WITH THE TWO MATERIALS IN A PREVIOUSLY INFECTED ROOM AGAIN DEMONSTRATED THE GREATER EFFICIENCY OF POLYPROPYLENE. THIS WAS ENHANCED WHEN A PRE-FILTER WAS USED GIVING A 60 FOLD REDUCTION IN 30 MINUTES. G.R.S.
