Launder separately from non-flame-resistant garments. Lint from these garments may affect flame resistance.

Do Not Use Chlorine Bleach. Chlorine bleach will not damage flame-resistance but may reduce garment life.

Garments with very oily or greasy stains may be pre-treated and washed in hot water (140° F Maximum). Dry cleaning may be more effective on these kinds of stains.

This fabric dries rapidly; for lowest shrinkage Do Not Over Dry.

Mount Vernon FR

Pants: P-INDMD13

Home Laundering: Wash on permanent press cycle with warm or hot water. Tumble dry on permanent press cycle. Remove garments when dry or slightly damp and place on hanger. Garments may be ironed for a smoother appearance.

Industrial Laundering: We recommend normal IL cotton wash formulas. Water temperature should not exceed 165°F. Any recognized commercial laundry detergent that does not contain bleach is satisfactory. Stack temperature should not exceed 165°F for best appearance and lowest shrinkage.

Dry Cleaning: Garments may be dry cleaned if needed and may be helpful in removing oily soils. Some dry cleaning fluids are flammable and must be completely removed from FR garments to maintain protective performance.

Materials to avoid: Chlorine bleach (sodium hypochlorite) or oxygenated bleach (hydrogen peroxide) alone or in combination with other materials will harm the flame resistant properties and should never be used for FR garments.

FR garments should not be starched or processed with fabric softener. Starch and some fabric softeners may be flammable. Both starch and fabric softener have the potential to build up on fabric surfaces over multiple wash cycles and may reduce the protection of FR garments.

Non-FR Laundering Instructions


  1. Wash in Cold or Warm, Not Hot Water: Use warm water instead of hot. Warm water can be effective for cleaning without the excessive shrinkage caused by hot water.

  2. Pre-Treat Stains: If there are specific soils or stains, pre-treat them with a bit of detergent before washing. This helps remove dirt and stains in lower temperatures.

  3. Prep: Turn the garment inside out to protect its outer appearance. Wash with like colors. Do not wash Non-FR and FR clothing together.

  4. Gentle Detergent: Choose a detergent that's effective at slightly warmer temperatures. Some detergents are formulated to work well in both warm and cold water.

  5. Wash Cycle: Use a gentle cycle for less dirty garments. Use the permanent-press cycle for dirtier garments. This is gentler than a regular cycle but more effective than a delicate cycle.

  6. Drying: Air dry (recommended) the garment by laying it flat or hanging it up to dry or tumble dry on low and remove from dryer promptly while still damp and hang to finish drying.


  1. Avoid Hot Water: Steer clear of hot water as it's more likely to cause shrinkage.

  2. Overuse Detergent: Don't overuse detergent in an attempt to clean better. This can leave residues and damage fabric.

  3. Drying: Do not over dry garments. Over drying 100% cotton clothing will cause it to shrink. Air dry (recommended) when possible.

  4. Neglecting to Reshape: Don’t forget to gently reshape the garment while damp if needed.

  5. Overcrowding the Washer: Don't overload the washer, as this can prevent thorough cleaning.
