“IL-friendly” apparel can withstand the extreme heat (160 degrees) and harsh chemicals used in industrial laundry facilities.
Light soil is also a term used in industrial laundries and means that the chemicals used are less harsh and garments are washed for less time and at a reduced heat (140 degrees).
Work shirts typically have a convertible collar and dress shirts typically have a collar stand and collar (banded collar). Additionally, work shirts usually feature two chest pockets for increased functionality, whereas dress shirts normally have one.
