Cotton as a dominating natural fibre imparts a major contribution in the whole textile market including natural and artificial fibers. The demand of this cellulosic fibre is increasing rapidly day by day, on the other hand supply cannot fulfill its demand, and as a result price goes higher in world market. Viscose as cellulosic origin, the cheapest of all cellulosic fibres could be the best alternative. Viscose fibre exhibits some similar properties compared to cotton except its poor wet strength. Some chemical finishes like water repellent and soil release can be used to improve its poor wet strength. Both water repellent and soil release finishes helped in reducing the molecular barrier around the individual fibres that lowered the surface tension of the fibre. It reduces the absorbency of viscose fibre hence leads to higher wet strength. Water repellent and soil release finishes can be applied individually or combinly. This improved property of viscose could replace the cotton fibre in certain applications like bed linen.
