    My career station has a commercial laundry/dryclean service provide an on demand cleaning service for turnout gear under contract for the whole dept. Unfortunately the turn around time and quality of cleaning often leaves a lot to be desired. I find that using my domestic washing machine and using a wool wash liquid (as recommended by the turn out's manufacturer) on a regular basis gives the best results. I do the same for my vollie turnout gear as my vollie station has no formal cleaning arrangements, other than do it/ arrange it yourself at your expense.

    Thanks,

    There are guys in my station that think He who has the dirtiest gear is the best firefighter.......

    Some of them will never learn. That is, of course, because they know it all.
