The quality of a fabric is assessed on the basis of its softness, smoothness, elasticity and so on. In order to impart these qualities, every textile is treated with reactive softeners. It is basically used to prevent the static cling and make fabric softer. Reactive softeners are applied on fabrics to improve their drape, cutting, handling and sewing qualities. Reactive softeners are usually applied as a thin layer coating on the surface of the cloth. These reactive softeners are electrically conductive and exhibit lubricant properties, which prevent the build-up of static electricity, making the fibres feel smoother and softer.

Textile/fabric generally undergoes various processes such as bleaching, resin finishing, soaping, weaving, knitting, etc. These chemical and mechanical processes make the surface of the fabric harsh. However, a nice soft texture is often decisive while purchasing a textile. As the consumers care much about the soft feel they get while touching the fabric, these reactive softeners are used extensively in textiles sector. The textile softener does not affect the shade of the material and is compatible with other chemicals as well as is stable even at higher temperatures. Reactive softeners are also nontoxic, non-caustic and easily biodegradable. Reactive softeners are N-methylol derivatives of superior fatty amides or urea compounds, which are replaced with fatty acids. These are formed by using graded fatty acid and amine derivatives with surfactants. Reactive softeners can easily disperse in hot as well as in cold water. Reactive softeners can be used for all kinds of fabrics for giving a permanent finish to them. Fabric softeners also contain chemicals to improve the aesthetic property of the materials. Emulsion stabilizers and preservatives are also used to ensure the quality of the fabric.
