I imagine peroxide based detergent would too. (Clorox 2) But you could test it out on an inconspicuous spot.
My dept uses Virex® TB Ready-to-use Disinfectant Cleaner. It works great, doesn't bleach things, and has a very pleasant odor. We use it on everything from door handles, to headsets, to BP cuffs.The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism.

Contact the manufacturer?
I can't even tell you who that would be. I haven't had the opportunity to do anything with my vest since I tried it on and placed it on my rack.FF-II/EMT-B/Incident Safety Officer/Photographer
