How dirty firefighters get clean.
Spray It On, Rinse It Off, You're NFPA Compliant!
Professional Cleaner For Turnout Gear (Sold by the case)
Turn Out Clean is a biodegradable product designed to clean turn out gear in an easy, safe, and inexpensive way. It is used on all fabrics from which contemporary fire fighting apparel is made. This includes Nomex, PBI and Kevlar as well as trim materials like Reflexite or Scotchlite. Turn Out Clean is also great for helmets, boots, faceshields and other accessories.
This product was designed with simplicity in mind. Just spray it on, let it sit for a moment, then rinse it off. Typically, just before leaving the fire scene, a fire fighter will grab a bottle of Turn Out Clean with a spray top and spray his buddy, pass the bottle, and he'll in turn spray his buddy, and so on down the line. When they're finished, they go back to the first person, rinse him off with a booster line, and then rinse the others. When they get back to the firehouse they take the gear off and hang it up to dry. That's it! And the hydrocarbons are left where they came from.
Why not use a concentrate?
There are several good concentrates on the market that are very powerful cleaners, but they are rarely used at the proper dilution rate and are extremely difficult to rinse. It may look good to the naked eye, closer scrutiny will reveal a film or residue that was left behind. Eventually that buildup will prevent the complete removal of all hydrocarbons. Turn Out Clean is properly diluted at the factory and does not contain much solids. So, Turn Out Clean is easily rinsed and leaves no film or residue.
Also, the Turn Out Clean system has proven to be easier, less expensive, and equally or more effective without the wear and tear caused by continuous cleaning in washing machines. However, if you prefer using a machine, you can use turn out clean in the machine.
