How To Wash Railroad High Visibility Clothing?
You may use a mild detergent.
No Bleach or Fabric Softener!
Tumble Dry on low heat. Remove immediately. Do not Iron. Do not dry clean.
When you machine launder your high visibility clothes and traffic safety vests, try to avoid adding garments with a rough finish to the wash. The microscopic glass beads on the reflective tape can be worn off by the rough treatment. Turn the garments inside out . Avoid fabric softeners as the fats from softeners negatively impact the breathability and wicking of the apparel.
If you line dry your garments you will extend the life of the reflective tape. If you choose to machine dry, try to remove the garment immediately. The added heat of the garment against the drum, with other hot clothes piled on can damage the reflective tape. Tumble dry low is recommended.
Our polyester garments do not bleed, but other dark garments may. This may cause a slight reduction in the intensity of fluorescent color. Try to wash the garments with other light color fabrics.
Do not forget to wash your railroad safety vests! We know you love to throw them in the truck and forget about them. The dirt from workwear can diminish the intensity of the fluorescent color. You want the color to be as visible as possible so the vest can be effective.
