Enzymatic wash is vital for removing the fuzz fibers which are responsible for forming pilling over the surface. The present work was focused mainly with the assessment of the performance among various enzymes: BPA (acidic), Hyzyme C 1085(acidic), Superzyme LDB (acidic), Supracel NOTR (neutral) and N9 (neutral). The properties of cotton fabrics before and after the enzymatic and reactive-dyeing treatment were investigated, including the color strength, color fastnesses, difference of color and gsm, whiteness, reflectance, pilling as well as price. The results showed that application of immobilized enzymes in a vertical bioreactor enhanced the formation of pilling and color difference found minimum for BPA (acidic). On the other hand, fastness rating found almost same for all enzymes. Considering the outcome-data, performance of acidic enzyme is better than neutral one and best one is BPA (acidic).
