Cotton fabrics are easy to clean. Cotton fibers have good moisture absorption and breathability, which allows them to quickly absorb and release moisture, keeping the skin dry and comfortable. In addition, cotton fabric is also relatively easy to clean, can be cleaned by machine washing or hand washing, not easy to deformation or damage.
Wearing cotton fabric clothing can bring a cool feeling. Cotton fibers have good breathability and moisture absorption, which can quickly remove sweat from the body surface and promote evaporation, ensuring that the body stays dry and comfortable. This makes cotton fabrics ideal for summer clothing.
