Thanks Waiswa Billy John  , I hope you can continue to spread the idea to your community as well! I wanted to also give credit where it is due - to Gérard Ulíbarri and his research team who came up with the idea. http://f1000research.com/articles/5-598/v1

Neshani commented on Akiz Textiles

Hi RH -thanks for the additional info! The microcapsules look like a fantastic idea - hopefully with testing they can get the the effects to last longer than three weeks. Your post also reminded me of the Zika Wear idea that Mandy Ferguson posted about. I am wondering if Mandy Ferguson 's team is also using microcapsules or has insight on any other technology for making the protective elements of the fabric last?
