Fitness company is using a special fabric to protect healthcare workers

HOUSTON, Texas -- Accel Lifestyle was started by a chemist who was simply tired of throwing out her husbands and hers stinky workout clothes.

Megan Eddings invented a better, cleaner fabric that is not only stronger and softer than most exercise clothes. It's antibacterial and doesn't stink.

After the COVID-19 pandemic began, Eddings wanted to use her invention to help people.

It took only a few days, and her company was able to start producing masks with the special Prema fabric.

Accel Lifestyle is now shipping the masks to hospitals like Houston Methodist.
