Who is iRepel for?
iRepel was not made for professional chefs. iRepel was meant for ALL people that love to cook, grill, bake, entertain and enjoy all that is food. Our goal was to create a high-tech gear for all foodies out there that they can call their own and enhance their experience of cooking - just like a golfer uses specific golf wear! iRepel is meant to be worn over your clothes to provide you with the ulimate protection in the kitchen. Not to mention it makes for a great party trick!
How does iRepel home chef gear work?
We use a new finishing technology called NanoSphere on our fabrics which provides a natural self-cleaning effect and an extremely high level of liquid and dirt repellence. It is based on nanotechnology. By using nanotechnology it becomes possible to transfer the non-stick and self-cleaning process of certain plants or insects observed in nature onto our fabrics.

What is the proper way to wash and care for iRepel Home Chef Gear?
The best way to wash your iRepel gear to ensure its highest performance is to either machine wash or hand wash with cold/warm water using a mild liquid detergent with no fabric softener or bleach and tumble dry. We also recommend you use a low heat dry iron (no steam) after the garment is dry. We cannot stress enough how important it is to not use any fabric softener on your clothing and that liquid detergent is preferred. Do not dry clean.
How long will iRepel maintain its performance?
Following our care instructions will ensure that your clothes will maintain their optimum performance for a very long time - about 5,000 washed. We have found that using a low heat dry iron will also help maintain your clothing's performance as well.
