Unlike off-the-shelf, one-step detergents designed for general use, Station Care 1851 Turnout Cleaner is made to rigid specifications. It contains many of the same formulations used in their proprietary 11-step process, acknowledged by many fire researchers and personnel as the most thorough gear cleaning procedure available.
We don't claim that Lion TotalCare products will equal full-scale, in-plant services. But they are an effective instation alternative and economical means of removing smoke, soot, dirt, perspiration, and light hydrocarbons absorbed in the course of day-to-day firefighting activity.
Lion TotalCare® products will not harm Nomex®, Kevlar®, PBI®, leather reinforcements, trim, or liner materials. Our products are recommended for both outer shell and all liner systems.
