LiveScience reports that the scientists have devloped a new type of self-cleaning fabric that can go weeks without washing, including your underwear. Here’s how it works:

The new technology attaches nanoparticles to clothing fibers using microwaves. Then, chemicals that can repel water, oil and bacteria are directly bound to the nanoparticles. These two elements combine to create a protective coating on the fibers of the material
