GORE® CROSSTECH® Fabric

Protective gear that includes GORE® 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.

To clean gloves with GORE® CROSSTECH® glove inserts, follow the manufacturer’s instructions, keeping the following in mind:

  • Do not wring gloves. To remove excess water, always squeeze from the fingertips to the cuffs.
  • Do not use chlorine bleach.
  • Avoid puncturing the GORE® CROSSTECH® glove inserts because this will compromise the protective barrier.
