Flame-retardant finishes

Washable flame-resistant fabrics should only be washed in detergent, never soap.

Do not wash above 50°C, and do not soak, as this can remove the flame-resistant finish.

Follow care label instructions very carefully. Fabric softeners are not for use on children's sleepwear, or other garments labelled as flame resistant, as they may reduce flame resistance.
