FTIR for fabric

Oct 2014
Hi all,

I am not a chemist but I have great interest in learning new analytic techniques and am a curious soul.

I want to find out if it is possible to remove all formulation from a wet cloth so I get a dried fabric that I can perform FTIR on to find out the blend. I know that the formulation contains these chemicals: Glycerine,
Glyceril Polyacrylate, sodium benzoate, sodium hydroxide, p-anisic acid, carbomer, citric acid,coco-glucoside,
glycerate oleate, lauryl glucoside, polyglyceryl-2- dipolyhydroxystearate, phenoxyethanol
