What Should You Do With Your Clothes After The Police Tear Gas You?

Since George Floyd’s death on May 25, people have gathered to protest, in groups large and small, against police brutality. To disperse crowds of protesters, law enforcement has frequently sprayed tear gas. Its micro-pulverized dust lodges both in the body and in clothing. According to Allure, the CDC says anyone sprayed with tear gas, even lightly, should shower and shampoo as soon as possible. If clothing needs to be lifted over the head to remove, it should be cut away.
