The article discusses the significant role played by textile industry in saving the ozone layer. The chlorofluorocarbons (CTCs) and carbon tetra chloride (CTC) are considered as the first global controls on ozone depleting substances (ODS). It points that the evaluating the properties of stain remover in association to health and safety is relevant. It suggests that its safety features such as skin irritation, inhalation, flammability, and environment should be established.
