School Uniform
« on: August 13, 2010, 11:01:12 AM »

I was thinking the school year is about to start soon and we have lots of mums and dads with young kids on here, so a little warning for you:
I saw the other day an ad on tv for school uniforms sold in Asda marketed as stain proof - they are covered with teflon coating. Any other fabrics which claim to be stain proof, including the bedding are covered with teflon.
They are unlikely to cause any harm when just worn by children, though I would still stay away from that sort of thing for the sake of my children, but please be careful when ironing them if you do have any. Teflon fumes kill without fail and there is no antidote or treatment for that.

That's really good advice Irina,  Not a lot of people would think of that. I dont iron in the same room as bells anyway, and dont have small kiddies going to school .    Phew!!

Angie, just don't bother with ironing  :rofl:
Well normal bedding shouldnt have any teflon, it is the stuff which is marketed as stain proof or non-iron one  most likely is covered with teflon.
By the way, Tracy, carefully with the stuff which doesn't need ironing, that is covered in teflon too most likely.

Seems like teflon and рtfe in general is really bad not just for parrots but for kids too and it is not officially classified as cancer causing by the US. It is worth reading to everyone with kids

I can already see people reading it and saying - ah who cares, if they sell it it must be ok. But you wouldn't buy your kids or for yourself clothes covered in asbestos, would you, and 50 years ago people probably thought it wasnt a big deal too. So think twice this time too.

Just checked Megans and it all has Non Iron, Stain Resistant and water repellent.
To be honest I dont think I saw any uniforms without the 'non iron' label on? Surely as its for kids its been highly tested?
