RayWear has been tested far beyond what most humans would ever experience, and our fabric has never failed. Our protection is in our patent-pending fibers and weave pattern. As long as the fabric is intact, then you are protected! Feel free to wash our gear with your regular laundry. However, corrosive chemicals such as bleach and chlorine can damage the fibers and will lower its effectiveness. That’s why we recommend you avoid any corrosive chemicals.
