Cleaning Instructions

FIRESIST is easy to maintain. It can be washed, or simply brushed and rinsed. Proper care and cleaning will help keep Firesist looking great.

For normal care and cleaning add 2 ounces of mild soap (such as Woolite, Dreft, Ivory) to 1 gallon of lukewarm water. Clean fabric with a soft-bristle brush. Rinse thoroughly with cold water and air dry.

For stubborn stains, add up to half (1/2) cup of bleach to 1 gallon of water. Spray lightly on the fabric. Do not soak. Rinse immediately. Prolonged exposure to harsh chemicals can impact the fabric coating.

Cleaning with harsh cleaners such as bleach may require a re-treatment for restoring water repellency. Glen Raven recommends 303® Fabric Guard for FIRESIST fabrics.
