Abstract: In this article, the performance of stretch denim fabric under the effect of repeated home laundering practices was studied. Four denim fabrics with different percentages of elastane were subjected to various simulated home laundering cycles, i.e. one, three, five, and 25. After the repeated home laundering processes, performance properties such as dimensional stability, tensile strength, air permeability, stiffness, mass change, thickness and fabric growth and stretch ability were evaluated. Based on the results obtained, those evaluated properties were affected by the repeated home laundering practice to various extents; the results were quantitatively measured and discussed. In addition, the effect of various percentages of elastane in the stretch denim fabric on the fabric performance after repeated home laundering practices was also investigated and discussed.
