Washing pesticide-contaminated clothing
• Use heavy duty laundry detergent.
• Laundry additives such as chlorine bleach or ammonia do not improve removal of pesticide residues.
• Line dry, if possible. Sunlight breaks down many pesticides and it can prevent residues from collecting in the dryer. If you are drying, use a cool setting.
• Remove any leftover pesticides from the washer by running an "empty load" through the complete cycle with hot water and the heavy duty laundry detergent.
• Businesses might want to consider having a laundry system, especially if uniforms are required by workers. This is just one more way to provide a pesticide safety system for employees.
• Personal Protection Equipment such as boots, aprons, goggles, and gloves should be washed thoroughly daily and allowed to dry.
• There isn't much research on the new low-water washers and their ability to remove pesticides. So, until there is, use the old fashioned washers that fill the washtub with water.
