In this study, inclusion complexes were prepared according to kneading and physical mixing techniques at 1:1 and 1:2 (guest:host) mass ratios of silver cyclohexane mono carboxylate:β-cyclodextrin. Prepared complexes were analyzed by using fourier transformed infrared spectroscopy, thermogravimetric analyses and scanning electron microscope. With regard to the obtained results, inclusion complex formation was observed with silver cyclohexane mono carboxylate and β-cyclodextrin at a mass ratio of both 1:1 and 1:2. In addition to preparation and characterization of inclusion complexes, they were applied on cotton fabrics via pad-dry method. In order to investigate the wash resistance of antibacterial effect, inclusion complex containing cotton fabrics were repeatedly washed and tested up to 50 washes. It was determined that cotton fabrics loaded with Ag-CC:β-CD 1:2 inclusion complexes showed antimicrobial efficiency against S. aureus, B. subtilis and P. aeruginosa even after 50 washings.
