My husband wears fire retardant clothing while performing his job which results in a lot of grease and dirt stains. Can I use your product? The clothing is marked No Chlorine Bleach, No Hydrogen Peroxide, and Detergent Only.


For fire retardant clothing, one does not want to remove or ruin the finish. That is why the limitations on the laundry product usage are listed.

For grease and dirt stains, I would try pre-treating them with either liquid laundry or dishwasher detergent (apply, rub in, wait 3-5 minutes), then washing in the hottest water recommended on the care label. Neither Clorox® Regular Bleach2 nor Clorox2® Stain Fighter and Color Booster is appropriate for this clothing.
