How do you guys clean your racing suits,gloves,neck brace,inside the helmet and shoes?? I searched and found a vid on doing the suit in the washing machine using the Molecule kit. Does dry cleaning damage the fire retardant in any way? How do you clean??? work

Hey Al, the only thing I remember about my single layer jacket was that make sure you close all the velcro strips. If you don’t the velcro will pull at the fabric which makes it fuzzy and the fuzz will burn.

Never never clean anything like that, it's bad luck.

My recommendation would be to obtain and follow cleaning instructions from the manufacturer. It should all be cleaned occasionally, if for no other reason than to not look and smell like you're homeless and just crawled out from under a bridge - or arrived from San Francisco.


If the results don't match the theory, change the theory.

I agree scope
I will have mine cleaned at the end of our racing season in late Sept. this year, it is a SFI 5 three layer pants and jacket, I get hot in it now and the local track has a lot of dirt in the pits whiney

I throw my single layer fire jacket in the washing machine and then air dry.
I haven't worn my multi-layer pants and jacket but a couple of times, so I haven't washed them yet.

Was not sure if I could this at home and see that I can......https://competitionmotorsport.com/molecule-complete-racing-garment-care-kit?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIuMqj8tLR4wIVhZ-fCh3GrAl5EAQYASABEgLSz_D_BwE

Appears if I dry clean it I would still need the spray on protector....
