Fujitsu has shipped more than 2 million rugged washable RFID tags in the first quarter of 2013. Sales of its washable tag have been so robust that the company says it has doubled the production capacity at their manufacturing facility in Japan.

Able to withstand more than two hundred washings, the harsh chemicals associated with dry cleaning, temperatures of 250 degrees Fahrenheit for drying and 400 degrees Fahrenheit for ironing, the tags are also designed to withstand the high pressure of water extraction systems up to 60 bars.
