CitroSqueeze Turnout Gear Cleaner


For firefighters, there are countless dangers on the job, but one of the tools of the trade can be the deadliest threat of all. Soiled and improperly maintained TURNOUT GEAR can seriously endanger firefighters and rescue personnel. Hydrocarbons from fire, smoke and ash become embedded in the protective fabrics, thereby reducing the thermal protective properties of the garments which can allow turnouts to absorb more radiant heat.

Potentially even more menacing are the carcinogens that become embedded in the fabric. These carcinogens can be easily transferred onto the skin and eventually absorbed right into the bloodstream. This hidden peril affects not only the firefighters, but ultimately their loved-ones and families.

CitroSqueeze® is formulated to remove the harmful and stubborn hydrocarbons and soils resulting from fires and chemical spills, while maintaining the integrity of your turnout gear. It is a specially formulated cleaner that meets the NFPA 1851 Standard (Standard on Selection, Care, and Maintenance of Protective Ensembles for Structural Fire Fighting). CitroSqueeze® is simple to use, biodegradable, has near-neutral pH levels, is environmentally safe and user-friendly.
