Formaldehyde In Clothing

Formaldehyde: the basics

Formaldehyde is a naturally occurring substance in our atmosphere. It is emitted by animals and humans as a by-product of digestion, and it is created during combustion. It can be found in smoke from fires, smog, tobacco smoke and vehicular exhaust fumes.

In more concentrated forms, formaldehyde is used in a number of industrial processes in a variety of industries, including the textile industry. Formaldehyde is generally used to give a permanent press effect to clothing, to increase stain resistance and for colour fasting. It is also used to keep garments looking new and fresh while in transit, and to retard mildew growth.

Dealing with formaldehyde safely

Trading Standards is advising people that it is good practice for new, washable garments to be thoroughly washed and aired, preferably outside, before use, and for new clothes labelled as "dry-clean only" to be thoroughly aired before use.

The most common effect is skin irritation. Contact your GP if you are concerned about symptoms that you think may be due to formaldehyde.
