Can you wash cut-resistant gloves?
Yes, you can. In fact, experts recommend proper care and cleanliness of cut-resistant gloves and sleeves to extend wear life and minimize the spread of viruses. Due to the variety of coatings and fabrics, it is important to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines when cleaning cut-resistant PPE. Follow the steps below for proper care of hand and arm PPE:
Polyamide materials (Nylon) & Para-aramid fibers (DuPont™ Kevlar®)
When laundering gloves that have especially heavy dirt or grease, include several pieces of heavy canvas in the second wash cycle - friction from the canvas against the gloves helps to loosen and remove deep-rooted dirt.
