Description:
USE OF POLYPEPTIDE HAVING DNASE ACTIVITY FOR TREATING FABRICS

Reference to a Sequence Listing

This application contains a Sequence Listing in computer readable form, which is incorporated herein by reference.

Field of the Invention

The present invention concerns the use of a deoxyribonuclease (DNase), a composition comprising at least one deoxyribonuclease (DNase) for treating a fabric item and a method for treating a fabric.

Background of invention

Cleaning processes such as laundry of fabrics involve application of detergents and some degree of mechanical stress to the fabric being cleaned. Fabrics such as textile items are prone to deformations in the fabric before, during and after laundering. These deformations are non- permanent and can be removed by ironing the fabric however the fabric must be ironed upon each occasion of laundering. The deformations are commonly termed creases or wrinkles. Prior publications describe various approaches to remove creases or wrinkles from the fabric.

WO2009021989 A1 (Momentive Performance Mat Inc) describes the use of polymers, such as polyurea-polysiloxane compounds for treatment of natural and synthetic fibres in a washing process to improve softness and reduce tendency to crease and WO201 1005963 (Colgate Palmolive) discloses an anti-wrinkle conditioner and a method for reducing wrinkles from a heavy fabric garment while laundering. WO2006097227 (Unilever) describes fabric care compositions for ironing which reduce the wrinkling of fabrics.

However, to achieve iron-eased, soft fabrics straight from the laundry machine there is a need in the art for methods to improve the properties of fabrics. The present invention provides compositions and methods for improving the properties of fabrics.

Summary of the Invention

The present invention relates to the use of a DNase to treat a fabric to provide improved softness and/or ease of ironing and/or anti-crease properties. The invention further relates to a fabric care composition for, enhanced anti-crease of a fabric, wherein the composition comprises a DNase and at least one detergent adjuvant.

Further is claimed a method for modifying a fabric material comprising (a) treating the fabric with a composition comprising a DNase; (b) under conditions leading to a modified fabric, wherein the modified fabric possesses a fabric improvement compared to the unmodified fabric. Definitions

As used herein, the singular forms "a", "an", and "the" are intended to include the plural forms as well, unless the context clearly indicates otherwise.

Anti-wrinkle and Anti-crease: In the context of the present invention, the terms "crease" and "wrinkle" and related terms, such as "anti-crease" and "anti-wrinkle", refer to non- permanent deformations in fabrics, such as textiles which can be removed by flattening at elevated temperature and moisture (e.g. by ironing). The terms are used interchangeably herein.

Bacterial: In the context of the present invention, the term "bacterial" in relation to polypeptide (such as an enzyme, e.g. a DNase) refers to a polypeptide encoded by and thus directly derivable from the genome of a bacteria, where such bacteria has not been genetically modified to encode said polypeptide, e.g. by introducing the encoding sequence in the genome by recombinant DNA technology. In the context of the present invention, the term "bacterial DNase" or "polypeptide having DNase activity obtained from a bacterial source" or "polypeptide is of bacterial origin" thus refers to a DNase encoded by and thus directly derivable from the genome of a bacterial species, where the bacterial species has not been subjected to a genetic modification introducing recombinant DNA encoding said DNase. Thus, the nucleotide sequence encoding the bacterial polypeptide having DNase activity is a sequence naturally in the genetic background of a bacterial species. A sequence encoding a bacterial polypeptide having DNase activity may also be referred to a wildtype DNase (or parent DNase). Bacterial polypeptide having DNase activity includes recombinant produced wild types. In a further aspect, the invention provides polypeptides having DNase activity, wherein said polypeptides are substantially homologous to a bacterial DNase. In the context of the present invention, the term "substantially homologous" denotes a polypeptide having DNase activity which is at least 80%, preferably at least 85%, more preferably at least 90%, more preferably at least 95%, even more preferably at least 96%, 97%, 98%, and most preferably at least 99% identical to the amino acid sequence of a selected bacterial DNase.

Biofilm: A biofilm is any group of microorganisms in which cells stick to each other or stick to a surface, such as a textile, dishware or hard surface or another kind of surface. These adherent cells are frequently embedded within a self-produced matrix of extracellular polymeric substance (EPS). Biofilm EPS is a polymeric conglomeration generally composed of extracellular DNA, proteins, and polysaccharides. Biofilms may form on living or non-living surfaces. The microbial cells growing in a biofilm are physiologically distinct from planktonic cells of the same organism, which, by contrast, are single-cells that may float or swim in a liquid medium.

Bacteria living in a biofilm usually have significantly different properties from planktonic bacteria of the same species, as the dense and protected environment of the film allows them to cooperate and interact in various ways. One benefit of this environment for the microorganisms is increased resistance to detergents and antibiotics, as the dense extracellular matrix and the outer layer of cells protect the interior of the community.

On laundry biofilm producing bacteria can be found among the following species:

Acinetobacter sp., Aeromicrobium sp., Brevundimonas sp., Microbacterium sp., Micrococcus luteus, Pseudomonas sp., Staphylococcus epidermidis, and Stenotrophomonas sp. On hard surfaces biofilm producing bacteria can be found among the following species: Acinetobacter sp., Aeromicrobium sp., Brevundimonas sp., Microbacterium sp., Micrococcus luteus,

Pseudomonas sp., Staphylococcus epidermidis, and Stenotrophomonas sp In one embodiment the biofilm producing strain is Brevundimonas sp.. In one embodiment the biofilm producing strain is Pseudomonas alcaliphila or Pseudomonas fluorescens.

Detailed Description of the Invention

The present invention relates to compositions and methods for improving fabrics. The invention further relates to compositions comprising deoxyribonuclease (DNase) and use of DNase for improving properties of fabrics such as cellulosic and/or non-cellulosic textile material. Non-limiting examples of such properties include anti-pilling, anti-shrinkage, anti-wear, color appearance, fabric softness, shape retention, static control, odor control or anti-odor and/or anti-microbial properties. WO201 1/098579, WO2014/08701 1 and WO 2015/155350 relates to bacterial and fungal deoxyribonuclease compounds and methods for biofilm disruption and/or odor control in cleaning processes such as laundry. The invention relates to

compositions and methods for improving properties of fabrics. In particular such improved property is anti-crease and/or softness. The inventors have surprisingly found that DNases provides anti-crease and softness benefits when applied to various fabrics such as clothes and towels. Cellulosic containing materials such as cotton are particular prone to creases during laundry and/or drying and a lot of effort and time need to be used for flattening the fabric. The invention relates to the use of a DNase to treat a fabric to provide improved softness and/or ease of ironing and/or anti-crease properties.

The invention further provides a method for reducing creases that may be formed when fabrics are washed and dried. The method includes the step of contacting the fabric with a composition, such as a detergent composition, that comprises at least one DNase. The method is suitable for reducing creases of fabrics such as clothes. In particular the method is suitable for reducing creases of man-made textiles such as towels, socks, T-shirts, shirts, skirts etc. The methods is preferably a laundry method comprising the steps of:

a) adding a composition or an additive comprising DNase,

b) optionally rinsing the item.

The laundering method includes machine wash and manual wash. The laundering process is preferably carried out at temperatures from 5°C to 90°C, preferably from 15°C to

60°C, such as from 20°C to 60°C, such as from 20°C to 40°C, such as from 30°C to 60°C, such as from 30°C to 40°C, such as from 50°C to 60°C. The DNase is preferably added in an amount corresponding to range of 0.00004-100 ppm enzyme protein, such as in the range of 0.00008- 100, in the range of 0.0001 -100, in the range of 0.0002-100, in the range of 0.0004-100, in the range of 0.0008-100, in the range of 0.001 -100 ppm enzyme protein, in the range of 0.01 -100 ppm enzyme protein, in the range of 0.05-50 ppm enzyme protein, in the range of 0.1 -50 ppm enzyme protein, in the range of 0.1 -30 ppm enzyme protein, in the range of 0.5-20 ppm enzyme protein, in the range of 0.5-10 ppm, in the range of 0.001 ppm to 10.00 ppm, such as from 0.002 ppm to 1.00 ppm, such as from 0.002 ppm to 0.10 ppm, such as from 0.002 ppm to 0.05 ppm, such as from 0.02 ppm to 0.1 ppm, such as from 0.05 ppm to 0.1 ppm, such as from 0.1 ppm to 0.05 ppm enzyme protein. The softness of the fabric is reduced gradually after several washes. The inventors have found that polypeptides having deoxyribonuclease (DNase) activity provides anti-crease and softness benefits when applied to various fabrics. One embodiment of the invention relates to a method suitable for reducing creases and/or improving softness of fabrics such as clothes. One embodiment of the invention relates to a method for treating a fabric under industrial and institutional fabric care conditions to impart anti-crease and/or softness effect. The method is suitable for laundering various fabric items. In one particular embodiment the item is a cellulosic item such as cotton. Cotton materials are particular prone to creases during a washing process such as laundering and drying. In cellulosic fabric hydrogen bonds between the cellulose fibres may to some extend ensure that the fabric does not creases. However, hydrogen bonds are weak and can easily be broken down/re-arranged during wash resulting in laundry which is creased. However, also non-cellulosic textiles get creased during washing and drying.

The present invention further relates to an anti-crease composition comprising a DNase. The composition is preferably a detergent composition or an additive comprising a DNase. In one embodiment the composition reduces crease formation in laundered fabrics by at least 10 percent, at least 20 percent, at least 30 percent, at least 40 percent, at least 50 percent, at least 60 percent, at least 70 percent, more preferably at least 80 percent, even more preferably at least 90 percent, compared to the fabric laundered without a composition comprising DNase. The anti-crease effect can be measured as described in example 1 of the application. In one embodiment the anti-crease effect ratio of test panelists preferring fabrics washed with DNase vs test panelists preferring fabrics washed without DNase is at least 60:40, preferably at least 65:35 preferably at least 70:30 preferably at least 75:25 preferably at least 80:20 preferably at least 85:15 preferably at least 90:10 or preferably at least 95:5, when measured as described in example 1 .

In one embodiment the improved softness effect ratio of test panelists preferring fabrics washed with DNase vs test panelists preferring fabrics washed without DNase is at least 60:40, preferably at least 65:35 preferably at least 70:30 preferably at least 75:25 preferably at least 80:20 preferably at least 85:15 preferably at least 90:10 or preferably at least 95:5, when measured as described in example 1 .

The use of DNase can impart to the item a reduced tendency to get creased subsequent to e.g. washing or drying.

A DNase suitable for use in the methods and compositions of the invention is preferably a microbial DNase e.g. such as a Bacillus or fungal DNase.

One way of preventing, reducing or removing creases from a fabric according to the invention is by contacting the fabric with a liquid solution comprising a DNase. The fabric may be contacted with the liquid solution for example by immersing the fabric into the liquid solution. The liquid solution can be a wash liquor and the fabric may be washed at the same time. Or the liquid solution can be a softener for use when rinsing or drying a fabric. The softener may be used in the rinsing water or applied to a sheet, which is used during rinsing or drying. This embodiment of the invention is preferred for textiles such as laundry textiles which can be washed, rinsed or dried at the same time as the creases of the fabric is reduced or prevented and/or the softness is improved.

The liquid solution can also be an impregnation liquid which liquid prevents the fabric from getting creased and/or improve the softness. The liquid solution for impregnation may serve as detergent and anti-crease and/or softener solution at the same time

Non-limiting examples of compositions according to the invention includes cleaning compositions such as laundry detergent composition, detergent additives, industrial cleaning compositions or a laundry softening composition.

In one embodiment, the composition is a laundry softening composition. The laundry softening composition can be applied to a textile, and may be used during washing, rinsing or drying the item.

The composition may further comprise detergent adjuvants such as surfactants, builders, flocculating aid, chelating agents, dye transfer inhibitors, enzymes, enzyme stabilizers, enzyme inhibitors, catalytic materials, bleach activators, hydrogen peroxide, sources of hydrogen peroxide, preformed per-acids, polymeric dispersing agents, clay soil removal/anti-re-deposition agents, brighteners, suds suppressors, dyes, perfumes, structure elasticizing agents, fabric softeners, carriers, hydrotropes, builders and co-builders, fabric huing agents, anti-foaming agents, dispersants, processing aids, bacteriocides, fungicides and/or pigments.

The composition preferably comprise one or more enzymes selected from the group consisting of proteases, lipases, cutinases, amylases, carbohydrases, cellulases, pectinases, mannanases, arabinases, galactanases, xylanases, and oxidases.

Specific suitable examples of detergent ingredients and enzymes are provided below.

In one embodiment, the invention relates to a liquid detergent composition comprising at least one DNase, preferably a microbial DNase, 5 to 30 wt % surfactant, 10 to 40 wt % builder, and at least 0.01 g active detergent enzyme (such as a protease, cellulase, lipase and/or amylase) per litre of wash liquor.

The detergent enzymes may be encapsulated in a microcapsule with a semipermeable membrane, having a water activity inside these capsules (prior to addition to the liquid detergent) higher than in the liquid detergent, the capsules will undergo a (partly) collapse when added to the detergent (water is oozing out), thus leaving a more concentrated and more viscous enzyme containing interior in the capsules. The concept is very efficient in stabilizing the enzymes against hostile components in liquid detergent, and vice versa also protects enzyme sensitive components in the liquid detergent from enzymes examples of such enzymes includes, amylases, lipases, and metalloproteases. Also sensitive detergent ingredients can be encapsulated, and thus stabilized, in the microcapsules. Sensitive detergent ingredients are prone to degradation during storage. Such detergent ingredients include bleaching compounds, bleach activators, perfumes, polymers, builder, surfactants, etc.

One embodiment of the invention relates to a method for reducing or preventing creases of a fabric comprising the steps of:

a) contacting a fabric with a composition comprising at least one DNase and optionally 5 to 30 wt % surfactant, optionally 10 to 40 wt % builder, and optionally one or more detergent enzyme, such as a protease, lipase, cellulase and/or amylase.

Any bleaching system comprising components known in the art for use in cleaning detergents may be utilized. Suitable bleaching system components include sources of hydrogen peroxide; sources of peracids; and bleach catalysts or boosters.

Sources of hydrogen peroxide

Suitable sources of hydrogen peroxide are inorganic persalts, including alkali metal salts such as sodium percarbonate and sodium perborates (usually mono- or tetrahydrate), and hydrogen peroxide— urea (1/1 ).

Sources of peracids

Peracids may be (a) incorporated directly as preformed peracids or (b) formed in situ in the wash liquor from hydrogen peroxide and a bleach activator (perhydrolysis) or (c) formed in situ in the wash liquor from hydrogen peroxide and a perhydrolase and a suitable substrate for the latter, e.g., an ester.

a) Suitable preformed peracids include, but are not limited to, peroxycarboxylic acids such as peroxybenzoic acid and its ring-substituted derivatives, peroxy-onaphthoic acid,

peroxyphthalic acid, peroxylauric acid, peroxystearic acid, ε-phthalimidoperoxycaproic acid [phthalimidoperoxyhexanoic acid (PAP)], and o-carboxybenzamidoperoxycaproic acid; aliphatic and aromatic diperoxydicarboxylic acids such as diperoxydodecanedioic acid, diperoxyazelaic acid, diperoxysebacic acid, diperoxybrassylic acid, 2-decyldiperoxybutanedioic acid, and diperoxyphthalic, -isophthalic and -terephthalic acids; perimidic acids; peroxymonosulfuric acid; peroxydisulfuric acid; peroxyphosphoric acid; peroxysilicic acid; and mixtures of said

ATC or a short chain triglyceride like triacetin has the advantage that they are environmentally friendly. Furthermore acetyl triethyl citrate and triacetin have good hydrolytical stability in the product upon storage and are efficient bleach activators. Finally ATC is multifunctional, as the citrate released in the perhydrolysis reaction may function as a builder.

The DNase or the composition comprising DNase may be added to laundry soap bars and used for hand washing laundry, fabrics and/or textiles. The term laundry soap bar includes laundry bars, soap bars, combo bars, syndet bars and detergent bars. The types of bar usually differ in the type of surfactant they contain, and the term laundry soap bar includes those containing soaps from fatty acids and/or synthetic soaps. The laundry soap bar has a physical form which is solid and not a liquid, gel or a powder at room temperature. The term solid is defined as a physical form which does not significantly change over time, i.e. if a solid object (e.g. laundry soap bar) is placed inside a container, the solid object does not change to fill the container it is placed in. The bar is a solid typically in bar form but can be in other solid shapes such as round or oval.

The laundry soap bar may contain one or more additional enzymes, protease inhibitors such as peptide aldehydes (or hydrosulfite adduct or hemiacetal adduct), boric acid, borate, borax and/or phenylboronic acid derivatives such as 4-formylphenylboronic acid, one or more soaps or synthetic surfactants, polyols such as glycerine, pH controlling compounds such as fatty acids, citric acid, acetic acid and/or formic acid, and/or a salt of a monovalent cation and an organic anion wherein the monovalent cation may be for example Na + , K + or NH 4 + and the organic anion may be for example formate, acetate, citrate or lactate such that the salt of a monovalent cation and an organic anion may be, for example, sodium formate.

The laundry soap bar may also contain complexing agents like EDTA and HEDP, perfumes and/or different type of fillers, surfactants e.g. anionic synthetic surfactants, builders, polymeric soil release agents, detergent chelators, stabilizing agents, fillers, dyes, colorants, dye transfer inhibitors, alkoxylated polycarbonates, suds suppressers, structurants, binders, leaching agents, bleaching activators, clay soil removal agents, anti-redeposition agents, polymeric dispersing agents, brighteners, fabric softeners, perfumes and/or other compounds known in the art.

WASH ASSAYS

Launder-O-Meter (LOM) Model Wash System

The Launder-O-Meter (LOM) is a medium scale model wash system that can be applied to test up to 20 different wash conditions simultaneously. A LOM is basically a large

temperature controlled water bath with 20 closed metal beakers rotating inside it. Each beaker constitutes one small washing machine and during an experiment, each will contain a solution of a specific detergent/enzyme system to be tested along with the soiled and unsoiled fabrics it is tested on. Mechanical stress is achieved by the beakers being rotated in the water bath and by including metal balls in the beaker.

The LOM model wash system is mainly used in medium scale testing of detergents and enzymes at European wash conditions. In a LOM experiment, factors such as the ballast to soil ratio and the fabric to wash liquor ratio can be varied. Therefore, the LOM provides the link between small scale experiments, such as AMSA and mini-wash, and the more time consuming full scale experiments in front loader washing machines.

Mini Launder-O-Meter (MiniLOM) Model Wash System

MiniLOM is a modified mini wash system of the Launder-O-Meter (LOM), which is a medium scale model wash system that can be applied to test up to 20 different wash conditions simultaneously. A LOM or is basically a large temperature controlled water bath with 20 closed metal beakers rotating inside it. Each beaker constitutes one small washing machine and during an experiment, each will contain a solution of a specific detergent/enzyme system to be tested along with the soiled and unsoiled fabrics it is tested on. Mechanical stress is achieved by the beakers being rotated in the water bath and by including metal balls in the beaker.

The LOM model wash system is mainly used in medium scale testing of detergents and enzymes at European wash conditions. In a LOM experiment, factors such as the ballast to soil ratio and the fabric to wash liquor ratio can be varied. Therefore, the LOM provides the link between small scale experiments, such as AMSA and mini-wash, and the more time consuming full scale experiments in front loader washing machines.

In miniLOM, washes are performed in 50 ml test tubes placed in Stuart rotator.

Terg-O-Tometer (TOM) wash assay

The Terg-O-tometer (TOM) is a medium scale model wash system that can be applied to test 12 different wash conditions simultaneously. A TOM is basically a large temperature controlled water bath with up to 12 open metal beakers submerged into it. Each beaker constitutes one small top loader style washing machine and during an experiment, each of them will contain a solution of a specific detergent/enzyme system and the soiled and unsoiled fabrics its performance is tested on. Mechanical stress is achieved by a rotating stirring arm, which stirs the liquid within each beaker. Because the TOM beakers have no lid, it is possible to withdraw samples during a TOM experiment and assay for information on-line during wash.

The TOM model wash system is mainly used in medium scale testing of detergents and enzymes at US or LA AP wash conditions. In a TOM experiment, factors such as the ballast to soil ratio and the fabric to wash liquor ratio can be varied. Therefore, the TOM provides the link between small scale experiments and the more time consuming full scale experiments in top loader washing machines.

ENZYME ASSAYS

Assay I: Testing of DNase activity

DNase activity was determined on DNase Test Agar with Methyl Green (BD, Franklin

Lakes, NJ, USA), which was prepared according to the manual from supplier. Briefly, 21 g of agar was dissolved in 500 ml water and then autoclaved for 15 min at 121 °C. Autoclaved agar was temperated to 48°C in water bath, and 20 ml of agar was poured into petri dishes with and allowed to solidify by incubation o/n at room temperature. On solidified agar plates, 5 μΙ of enzyme solutions are added, and DNase activity are observed as colorless zones around the spotted enzyme solutions.

EXAMPLES

EXAMPLE 1

Evaluation of DNase anti-crease and softness properties In this study, heavy soiled Terry towelling towels and cotton T-shirts from Warwick Equest were used. Towels and T-shirts were divided into two equal parts. One part was washed with liquid Ariel Color & Style without DNase, whereas the second part was washed with liquid Ariel Color & Style with DNase.

Washes were done in Full Scale Wash (FSW) using Miele Softtronic W5841 washing machine (Program: Cottons; Additional program: Short; Temperature: 30°C; Centrifuge: 1600 rpm). Ariel Color & Style was dosed 5 g/L. Two DNases were tested. Aspergillus oryzae DNase (SEQ ID NO: 1 ) dosed at 2 ppm, and Bacillus cibi DNase (SEQ ID NO: 6) dosed at 0.2 ppm.

Towels and T-shirts were line-dried for 24 h at room temperature. Parts from same towel or T-shirt washed without and with DNase were collected and evaluated by a panel consisting of 1 -4 panelists. Panelists were asked to select towel part being the softest and to select T-shirt part being the less creased. After evaluation, distribution was calculated.

Table 3. DNase treatment of heavy soiled Terry towelling towels and cotton T-shirts.

The softness and anti-crease is indicated with X:Y values, wherein X specifies the % of the panelists that prefers real items washed with DNase, and Y specifies the % that prefers real item washed without DNase. The sum of the X and Y values is 100%. EXAMPLE 2

DNase anti-crease effect on Polyester

In this study, non-soiled W30A polyester fabric pieces in 22 cm x 15 cm were used. Three pieces of fabric was added to each 1 L beaker, which went through a wash cycle with detergent (liquid Ariel Color & Style). One half of the beakers included DNase, and the other half of the beakers did not include DNase. Each result is the average of two beakers.

Washes were done in Terg-O-Tometer (150 rpm, 30°C, 20 min, 25 °dH water hardness). Detergent was dosed at 5 g/L. Bacillus cibi DNase (SEQ ID NO: 6) was dosed at 2 ppm. From each beaker, a fabric piece was subjected to each of the following drying methods:

1 ) Line-dried for 24 hours at room temperature;

2) Tumble-dried for 10 min in AEG/Electrolux Lavatherm TN95470 using Program: "Skabst0rt, medium, 2.04h"; 3) Table-dried for 24 hours at room temperature.

Pairs of fabric pieces from the same drying method, but with or without DNase treatment, were evaluated by a panel consisting of 1 1 panelists. Panelists were asked to select, for each drying method, which fabric piece of the pairs (+/- DNase treatment) was the less creased (wrinkled). After evaluation, distribution was calculated.

A similar set-up was used to wash non-soiled W30A polyester fabric pieces in a Terg-O- Tometer but including a rinse step for 10 minutes with softener Lenor (1.4% (v/v)) after wash.

After drying, the W30A fabric pieces were evaluated in pairs (+/- DNase treatment) by a sensory panel consisting of 3 panelists after the procedure mentioned above.

Table 4. DNase treatment of clean (non-soiled) W30A fabric.

The anti-crease effect is indicated with X:Y values, wherein X specifies the % of the panelists that prefers the fabric washed with DNase, and Y specifies the % that prefers the fabric washed without DNase. The sum of the X and Y values is 100%.

EXAMPLE 3

DNase anti-crease effect after full scale wash and drying with tumble dryer

In this study, four pieces of CN17 fabric, each sized at 40 cm x 20 cm and soiled with 8 grams of soil-mix including DNA (SBL-CFT from CFT), were added to each of two washing machines. One washing machine included DNase, and the other did not include DNase.

Washes were done using a Miele Softtronic W5841 full scale washing machine (Program: Cottons; Additional program: Short; Temperature: 30°C; Centrifuge: 1600 rpm; Ballast: 600-700 g clean 100% cotton T-shirts). Liquid Ariel Color & Style detergent was dosed at 5 g/L. Bacillus cibi DNase (SEQ ID NO: 6) was dosed at 2 ppm.

From each washing machine, two fabric pieces were subjected to each of the following drying methods:

1 ) Line-dried for 24 hours at room temperature;

2) Tumble-dried for 10 min.

Fabric pieces from the same drying method, but with or without DNase treatment, were evaluated in pairs by scanning the fabric pieces with a professional flatbed scanner (Epson Expression 10000XL). The scanned images were saved as single image JPG-files and imported into ImageJ 1.50i, which is a Java-based image processing software that can measure the area and pixel value statistics in pictures. From each scan a region of interest of the same size for each piece and containing >95% of each fabric piece was cropped and the cropped images were converted to 8-bit gray-scale. The ImageJ 1.50i default threshold method with red threshold color and dark background was chosen for noise reduction. A minimum threshold level of 210 and a maximum threshold value of 245 was chosen. Pixel values obtained with reduced noise were representing wrinkels. ImageJ software is free to download from

https://imagej.nih.gov/ij/index.html.

The numbers in Table 5 specifies the % of the scanned textile area which is wrinkle-free. EXAMPLE 4

DNase anti-crease effect with DNA soil from soil ballast evaluated on tracer textile of two different cotton types

In this study, 8 pieces of W80A unsoiled cotton fabric (CFT) in size 25 cm x 35 cm, 8 pieces of CN42 unsoiled cotton fabric (CFT) in size 25 cm x 35 cm, and 4 pieces of soil-ballast (SBL-CFT) in size 40 cm x 20 cm (equalizing 8 grams of soil), were added to each of two washing machines. One washing machine included DNase, and the other did not include DNase.

Washes were done using a Miele Softtronic W5841 European front loader full scale washing machine (Program: Cottons; Additional program: Short; Temperature: 30°C;

Centrifuge: 1600 rpm; Ballast: 600-700 g 100% cotton T-shirts). Liquid Ariel Color & Style detergent was dosed at 5 g/L. Aspergillus oryzae DNase (SEQ ID NO: 1 ) was dosed at 2 ppm.

From each machine W80A and CN42 fabric pieces were line-dried for 24 hours at room temperature.

The W80A and CN42 fabric pieces were evaluated by scoring according to AATCC Test Method 124 using AATCC 3D Smoothness Appearance Replicas by a panel consisting of 3 panelists (the panel set-up was as close to AATCC TM124 as possible). Panelists were asked to compare each swatch with the AATCC smoothness standards ranking from SA value = 1 (very wrinkled standard) to SA value 5 = (completely smooth standard). After evaluation, average panel scores were calculated for each condition.
