Your cleaner acts the same as bleach does. Get yourself a tyvek suit at Lowes or local hardware store in the paint department. But to answer your question......yes that's normal.

Try to position yourself in a way so that the wind is to your back when you spray and if there is any overspray it will be directed away from you.  However, make sure the overspray isn't blowing onto something that it could potentially damage also such as cars, landscaping, another house, etc.  That's where the ground tech begins to earn his money!  haha

We use a wand and are real careful.
I rarely bleach out my clothes, but it does happen.

It's normal if you are not wearing the proper PPE. Come to Charleston and I will show you how to be safe when cleaning a roof during a free seminar.

I would start with the Dikies suggestions these guys made. The white coveralls work great at protecting your skin and hold up very well.

Yes the Gemini shirts dont bleach at all. We did reserve those for our sales people. Techs wore Dickies Coveralls in White.

 Us too. Clothes for selling and clothes for washing. Sometimes I've rolled up on a estimate in work clothes. they dont seem to mind when I explain.

sounds like you may be working alone, or your the "GT" (Ground Technician) dripping on to you.

What others are saying.....Dickies all the way.... I am in my third year with the same uniform shirts and pants. I have gotten straight 15% on them and there is not a sign of bleaching on them.

The SH burns through cotton. My dickies pants are stained. Today I bought some fancy (100% polyester) golf shorts. Hopefully they hold up. I also ordered some long sleeve white, grey and blue polyester (sporty type) shirts. I tested the shorts and they did not stain. They look a bit like pimp gear but they might work.
