Fire-retardant clothing-related dermatitis

Background: Several laborers in a refinery unit undergoing a work over noted skin eruptions. Signs and symptoms included erythema, pruritus, scaling, and perifollicular inflammation on skin contacted by fire-retardant clothing (FRC).

Objective: The purposes of this report were to show a correlation between this rash outbreak and the use of FRC, to report the investigative results as to what aspect of the FRC most likely caused the dermatitis, and to present how this outbreak was ended.

Methods: Employees received questionnaires, were examined, and received patch testing, and pH testing of FRC was performed to evaluate the causative factors.

Results: More than 100 workers reported a rash, and approximately a third of these individuals exhibited a unique rash. There was a trend toward Hispanic and white workers being more affected than black workers. The onset of the rash peaked from June to August. This FRC-related rash resolved with the use of manufacturer-recommended laundering procedures.

Conclusions: The FRC-associated eruption was most likely a form of irritant contact dermatitis due to inadequate laundering procedures. The most effective preventative measure other than proper laundering was the use of underclothing to prevent contact of FRC with sweat-moistened skin.

Removing Iron-On Labels and Patches

Question: Removing Iron On Labels?

American flag patch on a sleeve.I bought my husband a dress shirt at Goodwill. It's in perfect shape, but I discovered there is a strange iron on label inside the collar. It's like paper, but it's tough.

I have tried Goo Gone and fabric softener. I have tried heating with the iron. I have tried plain water. I even tried digging it off with a flat screwdriver, but it isn't even fazed. I am at a loss as to how to get it out. Does anyone have any ideas of what would work? Thank you.

Easy Instructions. Things You'll Need:

Ironing board
Cloth or parchment paper

Step 1) Place the garment with the iron-on label on an ironing board, with the label facing up. Turn your iron on to the highest setting.

Step 2) Place either a thin piece of cloth or parchment paper over the label.

Step 3) Apply heat to the cloth or parchment paper over the iron-on label for 10 to 15 seconds.

Step 4) Carefully remove the cloth or parchment paper and immediately pull the corner of the label. The label will be hot; consider using a knife to slowly peel back the label.

Step 5) As the label cools, stop peeling and repeat. You may need to steam it off with a damp cloth.

I see that you said you tried an iron, if you try the method "kffrmw88 " suggested and it doesn't work, you may have to put a softer label over the top. Perhaps a dry cleaner would have a suggestion also.

Question: Removing Iron-on Name Tags on Clothing?

I have a number of pieces of clothing from my mom that don't fit her anymore. I would like to recycle them. She has iron on name tags on them from the nursing home.

Does anyone know how to remove these tags, without damaging the material?

Put wax paper right over the patch, then iron it (on high) for 10 seconds or so. Begin peeling the patch off.

Question: Removing "Sew No More" Patches?

In order to get out of sewing about 25 patches/badges on my daughters Jr Girl Scout Vest, I used something called "Sew No More" which was recommended to me by my aunt. I, of course, put them all in the wrong spots! I tore one of the patches off and there is now a shiney dried glue spot in the shape of the patch.

Does anyone know if this stuff washes off the material? On the tube it says it is washable, but that is when the patches are on. I dont want to rip off all the patches and be left with a bunch of shiny spots all over it. Any advise before I end up having to buy her a new vest?

I would take a scrap of fabric that is similar in weight and texture (maybe denim) and do a "test" patch with another scrap of fabric. Let it dry like you did on the vest and then tear it off like you did on the vest. Try some different products on the test "glue patch". I'd try rubbing alcohol, or acetone nail polish remover or a product called "oops" (found in the painting supplies at WalMart). You may need to moisten it and then scrape with your fingernail to remove it. Hope something works for you!

Question: Removing Iron On Name Tags from Shirts?

I have work uniforms from Cintas. I no longer work at the company from which I received them. They are nice and universal for any new job; painting, pressure washing, etc., any General Labour. So I need to remove the company name and leave my name. So I tried ripping them off and just put a giant hole in one of them shirts.

So I did some looking and alcohol was something I had read to use. Sure enough, it loosened the patch enough for me to pull off. I put it on a cotton ball and rubbed on the back on the patch. And v'wwahla

Really? Just plain old rubbing alcohol worked on your professionaly done uniforms? I need to do that to my husbands work shirts.

Question: Removing an Ironed On Applique From a Shirt?

I am trying to remove a professionally ironed on applique from a burgandy cotton shirt. Any suggestions?



May 19, 20050 found this helpful

You may have tried this, but just iron it loose yourself, on the reverse side of the shirt. Put some old cloth over the cloth of the shirt, exactly on the reverse side of the applique, so that you don't burn the shirt, and iron away on high. The glue will soften and then you can pull away the applique. I have used this technique with some success. The problem is that sometimes there are stubborn remnants of glue.

Normally those too can be lifted by putting the old cloth directly on top of them, after you take away the applique, and continuing to iron. The glue will melt even more and be absorbed by the old cloth.
The temp. of the iron should be high to work through the glue, so be careful and watch out for burning.

Can't help on the removal but, if the company made the incorrect spelling mistake then they are responsible. Return and request a correction or a refund.

Question: Removing an Iron-On?

How do you remove adhesive patches from jeans?

By J from Mesa, AZ


Here are my personal tips on removing iron ons.
-Dissolve the transfer adhesive using rubbing alcohol.
-Iron the clothing under a piece of parchment paper.

-Wet the transfer and then iron it off.
-Peel the transfer away with your fingernails.
-Wash the clothing to remove any remaining bits of glue.

Other tips:
-A Teflon-coated iron works best for the parchment paper method.
-Use Goo Gone if the iron-on does not come off.
-Combine several of the methods above if desired.

Question: Silkscreened Print or Decal Peeling?

My son just got back from a field trip that was 2 hours away and he bought a nylon drawstring bag. The decal or silk screen is starting to peel off in 5 or 6 places already. Is there any way to reattach the print? It looks like new, not all wrinkled up. Thanks for any help.

By jill


Use fabric glue. You can get it at the craft stores. Get a small inexpensive flat brush also to paint the glue on the back side of the decal, attach back onto the nylon bag and secure with tape till it drys.

By decal, you mean a patch or logo on the article? If so, you cannot really remove it without it showing. The best thing to do is to buy another one to go over it or make your own. You can buy fabric that meshes to fabrics together with an iron so that would be how you make your own.

FR Clothing: General Cleaning and Care Procedures

Wash Water Temperature Settings

Laundry Wash KeyWater Temperature
IL - Industrial WashDo not recommend more than 165°
LS - light Soil Wash140° wash maximum is light soil formulas
HW - Home Wash120° or less in 6 lb. load machine such as used at home

DO NOT USE Detergents with Bleach such as Tide with Bleach

DO NOT USE Chlorine Bleach

DO NOT USE Detergents that contain animal fats*

DO NOT USE Fabric Softener or Dryer Sheets*

*These are Flammable

Note:Never Spray DEET on your FR garments, it is highly flammable. If you must use DEET, apply it direct to the skin and NOT the garment.

Industrial Laundry

  • Wash separately from other garments to avoid damaging the luminescent effect.
  • Flame resistant apparel should be washed using soft water (less than 4.0 grains). Hard water adversely affects cleaning, resulting in increased detergent usage. Hard water contains mineral salts that can form insoluble deposits on the surface of fabrics. Sufficient buildup can negate the flame resistant characteristics of the garment, and may serve as fuel if garments are exposed to an ignition source.
  • Use non-ionic formulas. Do not use natural soaps (anionic or tallow soap). Soft water is recommended. Hard water precipitates soaps and contains calcium and magnesium salts. These can build up on the fiber surfaces, coating the fabric and masking luminescent or FR properties.
  • It is important that formulas are developed using detergents and wash temperatures (up to 140ºF) adequate to thoroughly clean all contaminants from garments.
  • Do NOT use Chlorine bleach (sodium hypochlorite) this must be avoided. Repeated exposure to bleach can destroy the luminescent effect.
  • If garments are heavily soiled with particulate or abrasive soils, a flush at 105ºF (40ºC) at the beginning of the cycle will help reduce abrasion in the wash wheel. Wash formulas and load sizes should be set up to minimize redeposition and fabric abrasion.
  • Starch, fabric softener, and other laundry additives can coat the fiber and mask the FR performance or serve as fuel in case of combustion. Therefore their use is not recommended. Garments should be soured to a pH between 5.5 and 6.5.
  • Use a short extract time to prevent setting wrinkles.
  • Do not over dry. Condition at a stack setting of 165°F so fabric temperature measured in the basket does not exceed 280°F.
  • Proper cool down to 100ºF or less in conditioning is essential for best appearance.
  • Tunnel finishing will improve appearance. Tunnel temperature must not exceed 280ºF on the fabric.
  • If desired, garments may be pressed using a short cycle. Do not exceed a fabric temperature of 280ºF under the press head.
  • Always consult the garment manufacturer for detailed instructions and precautions.

Home Wash

  • Wash separately in a Normal or Cotton cycle at any water temperature up to a maximum of 140ºF (60ºC). Use any typical home laundry detergent. Do not use soap (tallow soap containing animal fats).
  • Turn garments inside out before wash to reduce streaking from abrasion. Fill the washer no more than 2/3 full and use high water level.
  • DO NOT use chlorine bleach or liquid nonchlorine bleach.
  • Do not use starch or fabric softeners as they may coat fibers and mask FR performance and/or serve as fuel in the event of garment ignition.
  • The use of conditioned or soft water can help improve removal of contaminants from garments. Hard water precipitates soaps and can result in the build-up of calcium and magnesium salts. These can serve as fuel in the event they are exposed to a source of ignition.
  • It is important that all soils and other contaminants are completely removed from garments during the wash process. This may require the use of stain removal products, such as Shout®, Spray 'n Wash®, or Zout®; or presoaking garments prior to washing. The use of hot water can often make detergents more effective in the removal of soils. If all contaminants cannot be removed in home care, garments should be dry cleaned.
  • Do not over dry garments. If desired, you may press with an iron on the Permanent Press/Low setting.
  • Always consult the garment manufacturer for detailed instructions and precautions.

Dry Clean

  • Either perchloroethylene or petroleum solvent may be used.

Stain Removal

  • If garments become contaminated with flammable substances, they should be removed immediately and replaced with clean flame resistant apparel. Either home or industrial laundering may successfully remove most types of both flammable and non flammable soils. However, home laundry detergents may not successfully remove some types of soil found in industry, especially heavy greases and oily soils. If flammable soils are not completely removed, the flame resistance of the garment may be compromised.
  • It may be difficult to determine that flammable soils have been completely removed, but indicators would include the presence of stains and/or odors after laundering. However staining alone is not an indication that the soil has not been adequately removed. If it appears that the garments may still be contaminated after home wash, laundering at a local commercial or industrial laundry may be required. Dry cleaning may be used to remove oils and greases. Finally, if questions remain Bulwark will conduct flame resistant testing of the garment in question to determine its flame resistance. Please be aware that this is a destructive test and the garment will be destroyed.
  • Flammable materials are for the most part volatile substances that dissipate into the atmosphere, for example, gasoline. Stains remaining after laundering on the other hand are either un-removed contaminants or, more likely, simply discoloration of the fabric.
  • Always consult the garment manufacturer for detailed instructions and precautions.

Repair and Maintenance of FR Protective Apparel

  • ASTM International has developed two standards for repair and maintenance of FR garments. Standard F 1449Guide for Industrial Laundering of Flame, Thermal and Arc Resistant Clothing, covers maintenance of garments by industrial laundries. Newly adopted Standard F 2757Guide for Home Laundering Care and Maintenance of Flame, Thermal and Arc Resistant Clothing provides information for home care and maintenance of flame resistant protective garments.
  • Bulwark does not have a specific guideline on repairs except to follow the ASTM standards. This would also apply to zippers and any other trim or findings item that needs to be replaced. Technical Bulletins that provide detailed laundry and dry cleaning recommendations are available for each type of fabric used in Bulwark garments.
  • Essentially, all repairs must be made with materials equivalent to the original materials in the garments. In other words, Nomex® sewing thread and FR mending fabrics equal to the materials used in the original garment. Heat seal FR patches are available and are often used to make small repairs. Bulwark Customer Care can assist in providing repair kits for individuals and material sources for organizations.
  • Always consult the garment manufacturer for detailed instructions and precautions.

  2. So about the letter from a bank to prove I have funds in my account, it would only need to speak of any existing loans/credit card i have with them right not other banks right? Would an existing loan with a different bank altogether need to be spoken of to and/or affect my application in any way?
