Protective gear that includes CROSSTECH® fabric requires special care; however, cleaning the fabric itself does not require any special equipment or solutions. Simply follow the manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning the gear. For best results:
- Machine wash warm, rinse thoroughly, and tumble dry on warm setting.
- Use delicate care settings.
- Use a low-sudsing powdered detergent.
- Do no use chlorinated bleach or fabric softeners, which may affect the textile strength and color.
- Avoid puncturing the fabric because this will compromise the protective barrier.
