This study rated and compared the dimensional change and strength (elongation) of fabric finished for soil release after automatic laundering and drying. Neither finished nor unfinished fabric presented significant dimensional change. Unfinished fabric showed a higher degree of resistance to rupture than the finished one, both in warp yarns and weft yarns directions.
