Initial Treatment Instructions:
Select a well-ventilated outdoor area protected from wind and lay out the clothing to be treated (as complete outfit: shirt, pants and socks).
Hold container about 6-8 inches from surface of the clothing and spray with a slow, sweeping motion to lightly moisten the entire surface of the fabric.
Continue spraying over entire outfit until a total treatment time of 60 seconds has elapsed and the outer surface of the fabric is moist enough to cause a slight color change or darkening. Pay special attention to socks, pant cuffs and shirt cuffs.
Turn the clothing over and treat the other side as described in Steps 2 and 3.
Hang the treated clothing and allow to dry for at least two hours (four hours under humid conditions) before wearing.
Three ounces will treat one complete outfit. Do not exceed recommended spraying times.

Hold container upright about 6-8 inches from surface of the article and spray with a slow, sweeping motion to lightly moisten the surface of the fabric. Continue spraying over entire article until the outer surface of the article is moist enough to cause a light color change or darkening.
