The study was planned to assess the efficacy of pomegranate and onion peel extracts on cotton fabric with respect to bacterial resistance. Pomegranate and onion peel extract were extracted by soxhlet method and applied in two concentrations i.e. 3g/l and 5g/l. Desized and scoured cotton fabric was finished with these two pure extracts of pomegranate and onion peels and their three standardized combinations by exhaust method. SEM analysis was also done for visual analysis of extract absorbed by the fabric. To study the effect of finished on fabric with pure pomegranate and onion peel extracts and their combinations for bacteria resistance activity, quantitatively by AATCC-100 test method. In study it was found that percentage yield of extract was 17.27% from pomegranate peel and 7.46 % from onion peel. As the concentration of extract increased, bacterial reduction of all finished samples also increased. Among all the treatments, cotton fabric finished with combination of 50:50 was found to be more in bacterial reduction as compared to combination of 25:75 and 75:25 and pure pomegranate and onion peel extracts. It was 98.75% bacterial reduction in cotton fabric with 5g/l concentration of extract.

Keywords: Bacterial resistance, Cotton fabric, Onion peel extract, Pomegranate peel extract, Soxhlet method.
