Gastonia, NC

"As a small town veterinarian office, I was going through over 15 disposable gowns a day! Revolution RX gowns are a game changer for me. After a surgery, I wash the gown with a little soap/ water and send it to get autoclaved. It is ready to go in less than 10 minutes. Best product I've seen in years!"
