Could it be possible that we can stop doing our laundry?
At the University of California Davis, scientists created a chemical that can be put into cotton fabric without washing off.
When you step outside, the compound reacts with the natural sunlight to produce reactive oxygen species that break down harmful bacteria like e. coli.
This does not work for all stains, but this compound could eventually be used to develop hygienic clothing for health care so germs spread less.
This could help keep people healthier!
