Laundering Pesticide-ContaminatedClothing
1.Consider using disposable clothing, thus eliminating the need forwashing. Read pesticide labels to check for any special instructions.Pesticide formulation has the greatest influence on how easilyclothing will launder clean.2.Applicators should start with new or very clean coveralls each ap-plication season. Do not wear contaminated clothing. Launderclothing after each use. For best results, clothing should be washedsoon after being exposed to pesticides. The longer clothing isstored before washing, the more difficult it is to remove pesticidesfrom it.3.Empty pesticide granules from cuffs and pockets. Do this out-doors. If granules are left in the clothes, they will dissolve in thewash water and may not be completely removed from the clothingduring the wash cycle.4.If concentrated liquids are spilled on clothing, discard the clothing.High levels of an undiluted emulsifiable concentrate can remain inclothing even after 10 washes.5.Contaminated clothing should be stored and washed separatelyfrom other family clothing because residues can be transferredfrom contaminated clothing to other items. Those washing laun-dry should know which clothing has been worn to apply pesticidesand should wear rubber gloves when handling highly contami-nated clothing to prevent absorbing pesticide into the bodythrough the hands.6.Pre-rinse or pre-soak contaminated clothing and thoroughly wringor spin the water out before washing. Pre-rinsing is especially use-ful for removing wettable powder formulations.
