Acid Washing Information

Acid washing is a process that is done to accelerate the condition of a new fabric or garment into looking and feeling used and worn in. Acid washing can be done with a variety of processes, using either acids or alkali chemicals.

Metro Custom Dyeing is capable of acid washing on a multitude of fabrics and garments and routinely provides this service to clothing designers and manufacturers. To further enhance the look and feel of the garment, we recommend combining acid washing with enzyme washing to create a worn in, soft and subtle garment or fabric.
