Summary  In this study, a durable dual functional (antimicrobial and superhydrophobic) coating for cotton fabrics was developed. A novel one-step coating method was devised which is simple and easy for scaling up for bulk-scale production. The fabrics have potential application in a hospital environment to contain the threat of nosocomial infections.
