Hello all, I'm looking into environmentally friendly solutions for PPE in the food production area. Knowing how many hairnets staff can get through in a day, is there any reason why we can't use reusable hairnets providing they are laundered correctly? Many thanks in advance. Ry

Yes. It is acceptable if only followed proper washing/cleaning steps.

Yes, I visited a few plants in South America that used caps similar to the one in the photo.  A lady at the one facility made them- and made some pretty good side money selling them to the plants!  The plants were all BRC and IFS certified and had laundry procedures for the caps.

Hi All,

Unfortunately the laundry of these caps costs around 10x more than disposable hairnets so we're going to stick with those for now.

Thanks for your input though.

Cheers, Ry
