Product Care and Cleaning
CrewBoss FR Clothing
To ensure that you get the maximum performance out of your CrewBoss garment, please follow these simple steps for garment care.
Regardless of the type of fabric, any CrewBoss protective garment should be machine washed in warm but not hot water. This will help against damage to reflective trim and lettering.
CrewBoss garments will perform at their best when dried in the tumble low setting. Although some fibers are less likely to shrink than others, this helps reduce the risk of potential shrinkage to the garment.
