1. Polyester is the worst fabric you can buy. It is made from synthetic polymers that are made from esters of dihydric alcohol and terpthalic acid.

2. Nylon is made from petroleum and is often given a permanent chemical finish that can be harmful.

^Environmentalists discourage the use of fabrics made from nylon and polyester because they make use of petrochemicals, which pose more harm and detriment to the environment. These fabrics are said to be capable of emitting greenhouse gases at more than three hundred times than carbon dioxide.

3. Acrylic fabrics are polycrylonitriles and may cause cancer, according to the EPA.The EPA’s fact sheet contain information about the effects of polycrylonitriles as similar to cyanide, if inhaled. Workers exposed to high concentrations of this chemical compound experience irritation, anemia, nausea, leukocytosis, mild jaundice and renal effects. It was likewise noted as capable of causing severe damage to the skin and where concentrations that may be irritating to adults could be equivalent to doses that are fatal to children.

4. Rayon is recycled wood pulp that must be treated with chemicals like caustic soda, ammonia, acetone and sulphuric acid to survive regular washing and wearing.

5. Acetate and Triacetate are made from wood fibers called cellulose and undergo extensive chemical processing to produce the finished product.

6. Anything static resistant, stain resistant, permanent press, wrinkle-free, stain proof or moth repellant. Many of the stain resistant and wrinkle-free fabrics are treated with perfluorinated chemicals (PFCs), like Teflon.

But this is pretty much the same procedure applied towards cotton?

Also these chemicals are are not that bad. Just pretty basic acids, lyes and resolvents. The color ist probably worse.

polyester, rayon, and nylon are fine tbh

Stick to using natural fibers: wool, cashmere, cotton, silk, linen, and hemp.

I'm not sure how cotton is treated. Perhaps only using organic cotton is best? I imagine it doesn't go through that chemical process or it wouldn't be able to be labeled organic.

You're pretty stupid and clearly have no idea what organic actually means.

My good friend in HS was allergic to polyester and acrylic. She kept suffering from hives and a bad skin reaction and the doctors had no clue what was causing it, even after having her blood tested. Eventually she figured out it was her clothes she was wearing. Her symptoms went away after only wearing 100% cotton and other natural fabrics.

Organic cotton growers have to abide by biologically based growing practices that don't use chemicals/pesticides in their production system of cotton. Maybe you should go educated yourself dumbass.

Chief, organic cotton clothing does not use the amount of chemicals that regular cotton clothing does

All natural resources need to be processed and you will always need chemicals to create a clean product.

Fresh wool feels real greasy and dirty. You need to wash it - with chemicals, you need to bleach it - with chemicals, you dye it - with chemicals.

The amount of chemicals or better the amount of chemicals remaining in the finished product is relevant, but hard to check.

Exactly dumbass. That's just the production. The processing and manufacturing is a whole different story.

To make a regular white tee you buy from hanes or whatever, it takes a lot of chemicals, organic cotton shirts don't use this stuff.
Sure that shirt alone wont kill you but think of all the chemicals in your life and what happens to some because of it.
It's a good alternative

Prove it.

Prove that the manufacturers of the shirts, not the producers of the cotton, actually don't use "this stuff" to make their garments. Prove that they don't just slap organic on the label to trick idiots like you into paying more.

>think of all the chemicals in your life
For your own good, stop using chemicals as a buzzword. The cotton itself is made of every so scary "chemicals".

Dyed organic cotton is treated with hydrogen peroxide and low-impact dyes.
