Development of Sustainable Technique for developing Antibacterial Face mask Effective for Protection from Viruses

The people are very familiar with the fact that the clothes are the home for bacteria to grow and multiply. This results mainly in the transmission of communicable diseases and in general the skin-related diseases such as rashes, allergies, irritation, infections, lesions, and foul smell. Antimicrobial clothing treated with natural/herbal material is becoming popular as the first barrier towards bacterial activity in an eco-friendly way.

In past years, very few to nil efforts have been made for the development of antimicrobial fabric using medicinal plant's aqueous extracts from used Natural Recourses. In Rajasthan many plants with medicinal properties are available, the same plants are grown on self no need to give more water, care, and fertilizer also. Such types of plants are very beneficial for developing herbal products. The textile sector is a very large sector to produce harmful gases and these are very harmful to Environment as well as responsible for pollution and different health issues like skin irritation, breathing problems, etc.

Textile Ministry is very serious to stop textile industries wastage, very strict rules are also developed by Ministry and strict advisory is there to use sustainable techniques for textile production. In this paper researcher work on basically two objects, one on developing Sustainable technique and another one developing the herbal antibacterial mask which protects from different viruses also provide a good level of protection from Nobel virus covid -19. 2nd Novel virus Pandemic nature is that it spread around the world very rapidly and affected approx. 11.8 million individuals worldwide and has resulted in more than 5.45 lakh death (till 9th July 2020). In India approx. 7.95 lakh Confirmed cases and 21,638 deaths due to COVID-19 were reported till 10th July 2020. Spreading of Coronavirus in person to person by several ways viz. droplets, aerosolized transmission, surface transmission, and fecal-oral. Covid-19 can affect multiple organs in the body.

Rajasthan is the third largest and one of the slow-developing states of India, Rajasthan literacy, technical development, economic growth, and other many aspects are responsible for the indication of backward stats of the Rajasthan.

The Rajasthan state is situated in the north-western part of India between 23o 3' and 30o 12 N latitude and 69o 30' and 78o 17 E longitude and comprises an area of about 34227 Sq Km. A striking geological feature of the Rajasthan state is the Aravalli range which divides the state into two main physiographic regions, the 2/3 sandy arid plain which is unproductive, Thar desert, and 1/3 eastern fertile region rich in vegetation. About 80% of the population lives in villages and tribal of different communities form nearly 50% population of the state. Due to the constant association with the forest environment the tribal have accrued considerable knowledge of the plants and their utility, especially for medicinal purposes. In the Rajasthan hub number of textile industries working in the field of dyeing, printing, and various types of cotton production.

The present paper is an attempt to prepare dyeing and printing technology based on a sustainable production process with antibacterial properties develops in fabric by dyeing process. The researcher used two Natural resources as a natural dye-cottage level using indigenous and traditional techniques. The treated fabric will be having antimicrobial properties and when this fabric will be used for the preparation of different products it will be far better than the product prepared from the normal untreated fabric as it will protect from microbes hence the paper will be taken up with the following objectives:

Objectives: The sustainable technique development with different standard parameters for sustainable dye. Preparation of Antibacterial face mask and face cover through application of Sustainable dye.
