The antimicrobial activity does not increase in proportion to the Ag content above 10 ppm as a consequence of a {"}saturation{"} effect. Such low NP loadings on antimicrobial textiles minimizes the risk to human health (during textile use) and to the ecosystem (after textile disposal), as well as it reduces potential changes in color and texture of the resulting textile products. After three washes, the release of Ag is in the order of 1 wt {\%}, which is comparable to textiles nanofinished with wet routes using binders.
