How To Wash FR Clothing
- May 16, 2018 -

FR clothing is very important for worker who is in the hard work area.Depending on the high price of the workwear ,The daily maintaining is very important.

Home laundry is a safe, cost-effective alternative to industrial laundering and can help extend the service life and protective qualities of FR clothing. 

First and foremost, you should always follow the instructions on the garment label. 

  • Wash in warm water – for heavily soiled garments, wash in the hottest temperature allowed on the care label (generally a warm setting) to remove dirt.

  • Use small wash loads, if possible – this helps reduce wear and improve cleaning

  • Wash FR clothing inside out, separate from everyday clothing – this helps reduce wear

  • Tumble dry on low or permanent press, or the “less dry” setting – drying a garment on high heat can cause excessive shrinkage. Most shrinkage is caused by overdrying, which occurs when a dry garment continues to be heated.

  • Remove from dryer damp or line dry to minimize shrinkage – two-thirds of a garment’s shrinkage often takes place within the first five washings.

  • Dry-cleaning is recommended for difficult stains – or try spot-treating stains with detergent prior to washing.

 Equally as important as knowing what you should do is knowing what you should not do when home laundering FR clothing. DO NOT USE:


  • Liquid chlorine bleach

  • Fabric softener

  • Detergent with fabric softener

  • Oversized wash loads
