Cleaning PPE

Cleanup after spraying:

  • Don't wear the protective clothing for any longer than is necessary.
  • Non-waterproof cotton overalls should be removed and machine-washed separately from other clothes.
  • Waterproof suits should be rinsed off with clean water before removal and machine wash separately.
  • Rinse gloves in clean water before removing them, then wash them with warm, soapy water.
  • Store all PPE in a dry and clean place outside the agrichemical store.
  • Take a cool shower (hot water opens the skin's pores) and put on clean clothes.


  • Clean your respirator after use.  Remove the filter cartridge(s) before washing the respirator in warm, soapy water.  Dry the respirator and store it in a sealed container.
  • Store filters in an airtight container when not being used.  Do not store them in your agrichemical store.
