A specimen of the textile in contact with one or two specified adjacent fabrics is mechanically agitated under specified conditions of time and temperature(prescribed temperature of 60 oC ± 2 oC) in a soap solution, then rinsed and dried. The change in colour of the specimen and the staining of the adjacent fabric (s) are assessed with the grey scales.
