The authors have examined some of the potential causes of yellowing of cotton fabrics other than phenolic yellowing. Bleached interlock cotton knit composed of 20s carded yarn was used. The effects of packaging materials such as cardboards and polyethylene films on yellowing were demonstrated. The tendency to yellowing of finishing additives including fluorescent brighteners, softening agents and resin were examined with reference to the presence of atmospheric pollutants such as nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide. The effects of external agencies such as perspiration and heat treatment on yellowing were also studied.
