Cleaning workwear and uniforms, the golden goose may have been found

The people from Ecolab have been working with independent suppliers of retro-reflective tapes and personal protective clothing to put washing processes based on Performance™ Industrial to the test. The aim was to find safe washing solutions, being able to preserve the technical features of the protective clothing, extend the textile lifetime and respect the brilliant colors.

Industrial workwear and uniforms were washed with the Performance™ Industrial program for 1 year, in order to test the effectiveness of the washing performance while maintaining the specific characteristics of the industrial clothing. The special chemistry of the components did their job at 50-65 °C. Result: increase of the textile lifetime and preservation of the technical properties of 100% cotton and blends, the whole process was tracked with microchips.
