Transcript of Inventions and Innovations leading up to and after Dissolvable Clothing

By: Kensley Sutton Inventions and Innovations Leading
up to Dissolvable Clothing The first clothes were made from natural elements
animal skin and furs
grasses and leaves
bones and shells
Usually draped or tied but sometimes made with simple needles made out of animal bone Dissolvable clothing is made of PVA fabric
and it called OREX. It is used in labs so
that the chemicals used do not stick to
the clothing and cause a dangerous chemical
to spread. They are used once because they
dissolve after the first use when you are
finished wearing it. In the past they had
problems with the clothing not being cleaned
thoroughly after lab use. That would cause
dangerous chemicals to spread.
You wear it and after your lab is over it will probably be contaminated with chemicals.
You can then just throw away the clothing and not have to wash out the chemicals and be at risk of getting harmed by them. Disposable Clothing OREX Dissolvable Clothing Dissolvable Clothing is made
to cover several issues: rad waste
reduction, cost control, and
personnel protection. It saves
money becasuse you don't have to pay to get it washed. It is also
safer because instead of washing the chemicals out of your clothes and risking not getting it out you can throw it away and not harm the environment.
Regular lab wear such as
a lab coat, gowns, or scrubs
were worn for the day and
then they were washed. They
had problems getting hazardous
chemicals out of the clothing
and then the chemicals were
spread and dangerous. They had
to be washed by professional
laundering facilities which was
costly. Also these items were not able to hold up after multiple washes. regular clothes
(store bought/factory made)
Before people realized that they were
working in hazardous surroundings
they wore their regular clothes in
the lab. That was dangerous because
when the chemicals got stuck to the
clothing it became dangerous to whoever was wearing it. home made clothing
People bought, traded, or made
fabric and hand-stitched it
together to create their own
clothing. Those clothes were
not very protective but they
suited their purpose for that
time. Works Cited
