POLYESTER-RAYON SHIRTS AND TROUSERS
- The white, charcoal gray and nickel gray uniform items are made with a breathable, highly durable and stain-resistant woven blend of 65% polyester and 35% rayon.
- Machine wash in cold water on a gentle cycle. Wash the white shirts with other lights (always in cold water due to the embroidery) and the dark colors with other darks.
- Tumble dry in low heat and remove promptly once the drying cycle is complete.
- Touch up with a warm iron if required.
- The knit shirts are made with a breathable, densely woven and durable, stain-resistant treated polyester.
- Wash in cold water on a gentle cycle with other dark colors.
- Use color-safe bleach only when needed. Never use liquid bleach on dark clothing.
- Tumble dry in low heat and remove and hang or lay flat as soon as the drying cycle is over.
FLAME RESISTANT SHIRTS AND TROUSERS
Use any typical home laundry detergent. Powdered home wash detergents containing sodium perborate and other “color safe” bleach alternatives will not affect the flame resistance of the garments.
- Do not use chlorine bleach, liquid non-chlorine bleach or detergents that contain hydrogen peroxide. These include but are not limited to liquid Tide with Bleach®, liquid Clorox II®, and liquid Vivid®.
- It is important that all potentially flammable soils and other contaminants are completely removed from garments during the wash process. This may require the use of stain removal products, such as Shout®, Spray ‘n Wash®, or Zout®; or presoaking garments prior to washing. The use of hot water can often make detergents more effective in soil removal. If all contaminants cannot be removed in home care, you should obtain professional help in getting your FR garments clean.
- The use of conditioned or soft water can help improve removal of contaminants from garments. Hard water precipitates soaps and can result in the build-up of calcium and magnesium salts. These can serve as fuel in the event they are exposed to a source of ignition.
- Starch, fabric softeners, and other laundry additives are not recommended because they can coat fibers and mask FR performance, or serve as fuel in case of garment ignition.
- Do not over dry garments. If desired, you may press with an iron on the normal cotton setting.
- We recommend you turn garments inside out to help reduce streaking that can occur due to abrasion in the washer.
