Now days, all research efforts in the field of wet processing of textiles are directed towards sustainable process through chemical substitution, shortening and simplification of the processing sequence for minimizing water and energy consumption and reducing effluent load and the number of operations or shorten the process time. Thus, it has become necessary to combine several textile processing stages. This part of research work deals with design of combined enzymatic desizing and scouring process for cotton textile by using a mixture of BEISOL T2090 and BEISOL PRO enzymes. To optimize the combined bio-desizing and bioscouring, the Box-Behnken design (BBD) was utilized during the investigation. The range of process parameters were taken in three different levels at equal intervals. The treatment effectiveness on fabric properties was evaluated via weight loss (%), TEGEWA rate, tensile strength, and water absorbency (wettability). Furthermore, the properties of the combined treatment of the fabric after common bleaching process were investigated and compared to the conventional processes.
