Growth of bacteria on textiles possesses a range of unwanted negative effects; initially irritation and up to reach eczema, these are concerning the wearer, particularly, if grown bacteria are into socks or underwear; also clothes can generate unpleasant odour, stains and discoloration in the fabric, as well as reduction in fabric strength and subsequently contamination.  In the medical field, incorporating bacteria within nursing gowns can be fatal.  Aim of this paper, is to assess the functional efficiency of nano-quaternary ammonium compounds (QACs) treated garments; including woven nursing gowns, knitted under-wears and socks.  Methodology was undertaken using a number of nine different clothing materials; both woven and knitted garments, with fibre content of 100% cotton, PES/cotton and 100%PES.  All of which were treated using nano-QACs antibacterial substance.  Both treated and untreated garments were examined using a number of test methods; first, the agar diffusion plate, second, thermo-physiological comfort properties of wettability and heat-loss, finally, spray test was done evaluating stain resistance of nursing gowns.
