Smart emerging technology of self-cleaning concept has achieved surprising interest because of their components and extensive variety of conceivable applications in different fields such as curtains and upholstery for theaters and hospitality. A superhydrophobic surface with roll off angle less than 10º is called self-cleaning. Because the rolling water droplet takes away all the dust and dirt particles with it and leaves the surface very clean. These self–cleaning surfaces have numerous applications in diverse fields like textiles as curtains and upholstery for theaters and hospitality, and applications requiring anti-fouling and a reduction of drag in fluid flow. In micro/nanochannels. The methods towards integration of more than one functional property into one fabric were carried out by functionalizing cotton fabric with silver particles which was subsequently modified with octyltriethoxysilane to make it hydrophobic. Various attempts have been made to develop biologically self-cleaning textiles by using some of above mentioned techniques for bacterial growth prevention.
