Best practices regarding the proper home laundry for Westex® FR Fabrics…

  • Wash FR Clothing separate from other non FR garments
  • Don’t wash in hot temperatures – best results are typically cold to warm temperatures
  • Don’t use bleach or commercial detergents containing bleach
  • Don’t use fabric softeners in either the wash cycle or drying cycle
  • During the initial few laundry cycles the FR clothing is going to have the most shrinkage, therefore we recommend either “line-drying” or on low drying “delicate” cycles to a maximum damp state
  • Don’t use stain removers or solvents – these could mask the FR attributes
  • Don’t apply mosquito repellents (DEET) or insect repellents on the surface of the FR Clothing as this could mask the FR attributes
