1.2 Fire Hazards

Some fabrics are not suitable for tumble drying.
The following MUST NOT be placed in your
dryer due to the risk of a fire or an explosion :
Items that have been spotted or soaked with
vegetable oil, cooking oil, suntan oil, linseed oil,
salad oil, lubrication oil or grease. Oil affected
items can ignite spontaneously, especially
when exposed to heat sources such as in a
tumble dryer.The items becomce warm,
causing as oxidation reaction in the oil.
Oxidationcreates heat. If heat cannot escape,
the items can become hot enough to ignite.
Pilling, stackingl or storing oil-affected items
can prevent heat from escaping and create a
fire hazard.If it is unavoidable that fabrics that
contain vegetable or cooking oil, or have been
contaminated by hair care products be placed
in a tumble dryer, they should first be washed is
hot water with extra detergent - this will reduce,
but not eliminate the hazard.
The final part of tumble dryer cycle occurs
without heat (Cooling cycle) to ensure that the
items are left at the temperature that ensures
that the items will not be damage.

washed in, or spotted with petrol/gasoline,

kerosene,some spot removers, turpentine,
waxes and wax removers should not be put in
