Polyester Clothes

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Has anyone heard of poly/cotton mix clothing melt in the kitchen? I have a new job now that wants me to wear coats and I'm wondering if I should just go ahead and get a 100% cotton coat or if the poly/cotton mix are safe enough to wear in the kitchen.

I have wore poly/ cotten blends, 50/50 for years and find them comfortable and longer lasting than 100% cotton. Never even heard of a melting chef jacket.

Be prepared to do a lot of ironing if you go 100% cotton.  Never had a poly blend melt on me

Once i worked in a place with a grill in an open fireplace. And i were wearing a cheap black polyester shirt and a small spot melted on the front. But i never had a proper chef jacket melt on me

I've heard that cotton jackets need a lot of ironing.

I have a couple of Cotton jackets and yes they are a bugger to iron but look and feel very nice.  i only ware them when i know i will not be getting too dirty.  poly Cotton blend are the easiest to clean and take care of.  the stains come out easier too.  never had one melt on me.

I figured the blend was to get all the stains out easier. I've worn a cotton and a polyester side by side and the cotton does seem to be cooler and less starchy.
