contaminated clothing, pesticide, laundering
Clothing worn by agricultural workers during handling and application of pesticides is subject to contamination. It has been shown by scientific investigation that textiles, once contaminated, can be very difficult to decontaminate through commonly used laundry procedures. Any pesticide residues which remain in garment are considered biologically active, and could be absorbed through the skin of the wearer.
