1.1 This guide provides recommendations for home laundering of clothing that is flame, thermal, and arc resistant.
1.1.1 This guide does not apply to dry cleaning of flame, thermal, and arc resistant clothing. For more information on dry cleaning, follow label instructions or contact your garment supplier or fabric manufacturer.
1.1.2 This guide does not apply to industrial laundering of flame, thermal, and arc resistant clothing. For more information on industrial laundering, follow Guide F 1449
1.2 When garments are laundered properly, using the proper detergent, home laundering is an effective cleaning process.
1.3 It is important that potentially flammable contaminants are removed from garments during the wash process. If flammable contaminants are not removed, the flame resistance of the garment may be compromised.
1.3.1 To reduce the potential of employees wearing garments contaminated with flammable substances, the end user should analyze the soil conditions to which a worker may be exposed, along with the effectiveness of the wash procedure. In the event home laundering is deemed ineffective, alternative solutions should be pursued (dry cleaning, industrial laundering, disposable FR coveralls, etc.).
1.4 Certain laundry chemicals that may have an adverse effect on fabric flame resistance are identified in this guide and should not be used.
1.5 This guide does not apply to specialized protective garments such as specialized firefighter turnout gear and proximity firefighter ensembles.
1.6 This guide also provides recommendations for inspection criteria that are significant to the performance of flame, thermal, and arc resistant clothing.
