How Do I Clean Insulated Overalls and Coveralls?

If you work in the cold, you know how much you depend on warm winter workwear to keep you protected and comfortable on the job. That warmth and protection is what makes insulated bib overalls and coveralls from RefrigiWear such a great value: they're amazingly warm, super comfortable and built to last.

But even the toughest, most durable work wear needs a little care every now and then. Our insulated workwear is easy to care for because we know you don't have time to waste on high-maintenance gear - you've got work to do!

Warm work overalls and coveralls from RefrigiWear can be cleaned in standard residential washing machines following these easy steps:

  1. Check and empty all your pockets. Your RefrigiWear gear may have handwarmer pockets, chest pockets, zippered pockets or interior pockets and you don't want to wash small tools or electronics by mistake.
  2. Wash insulated overalls and coveralls separately from other laundry. Use a mild detergent and warm water (less than 104°F).
  3. When they're done in the wash, toss insulated overalls or coveralls into the dryer on the lowest heat setting for no more than 10 minutes, just enough to dry out the straps and trim. Then, hang them up to finish air drying. It takes a little longer, but air drying is safer for the material inside your overalls and coveralls, plus it helps them last longer. A fan can help get the job done faster.

That's it! A few minutes of care every 2 to 3 weeks will keep your work overalls and coveralls feeling comfortable and looking great.

How often insulated coveralls should be washed

How Often Should I Wash Insulated Overalls and Coveralls?

Unless you have a really, really dirty job, you can wash your work coveralls and overalls every 2 to 3 weeks.

If you need to get a little everyday dirt off without a full wash cycle, you can spot clean insulated work overalls and coveralls with a soft, dry brush or a wet cloth.

Do not dry clean insulated coveralls

Can I Dry Clean Insulated Work Overalls and Coveralls?

No, dry cleaning processes can damage insulated fabrics.

Many people think that dry cleaning is safer and more effective, but it's not safe for all types of work clothes. Dry cleaning insulated overalls or coveralls will make their fabrics break down much faster, meaning they won't last you nearly as long.
