Critics of the GAO study say more research needs to be done because that study did not examine textiles like upholstery, and the effects of long-term exposure, body temperature and sweat may have on the resin. Given a clothing item may be in contact with large and/or more sensitive areas of the skin, dermal exposure to formaldehyde can be very significant, particularly for sensitive people. Because clothing labels do not tell consumers if the fabric has been treated with formaldehyde, some experts recommend washing or dry cleaning all clothes before wearing it for the first time to reduce exposure to the chemical. Consumers buy clothing produced in countries, such as Japan, that have strict formaldehyde guidelines.
