Fire repellent clothes are usually made of wool or synthetic fabrics that are extremely tightly woven. Or regular clothes can be given a fire-retardant chemical finish

Tip

A simple mixture of 3 ingredients will make any and all of your clothing into...


I used to be afraid that one day my house would catch on fire and that my children's clothing wouldn't be fire resistant and how unsafe that would be. I spent time online doing research and found a very simple and easy to follow recipe for a flame retardant that can be applied to clothing.

What you have to do is wash your clothes like you do normally and rinse as normally. Using a bucket mix 1 gallon of water with 9 ounces of Mule Team Borax and 4 ounces of boric acid (adjust amounts according to the ratio 1:9:4). Soak the clothing in this mixture, squeeze out the excess liquid and dry normally.

When ever you wash the clothing you should reapply the flame retardant because it washes out in the laundry.

If you want to make clothing that cannot be soaked fire retardant then what you can do is pour the mixture into a spray bottle and spray a light layer on to the clothing. Allow it to dry and just like regular clothing after washing reapply the mixture to ensure its still fire retardant.

Please also note that this does not make your clothes fire repellent, this will make them less likely to catch fire in the case of a fire.

Do insect repellent clothes look much worse than normal clothes?


No. Insect repellent clothes look like most outdoor clothies, but are woven with a certain substance that kills or knocks out bugs and extends its effects on also the uncovered parts of the body close to the piece of clothes.
It looks or smells no differently than normal clothes, and costs only a bit more, not even so much.

Does wearing clothes treated with insect repellency really help?


Cloth treated with insect repellency offers a long lasting protection against mosquitos and unlike the traditional repellent, the repellency is near your skin not on it which alleviate concerns about skin diseases caused by long term use of the traditional insect repellent.
