Acid Wash:
Acid wash is a process in which a denim garment is treated with a bleach solution containing chlorine-soaked stones so that the color becomes faded and the material is softer. In case of acid wash, pumic stones are used. By the action of pumic stones, irregular fading affect is developed on the heavy garments like denims, thick canvas/twill, and sweater. The pumic stones act a brushing action on the garment fabric surface. Fading affect may be developed on the garment by acid wash technique. Flowchart of acid wash is given below.
