Abstract : The two types of riot-control agents, CS and CN, used currently in quelling civil disorders are similar, but not identical. However, the same method of decontamination is recommended for both agents, namely: a light-duty detergent such as those recommended for synthetic fabrics and dishes may be used, or a heavy-duty detergent such as those recommended for washing cotton and other heavier materials.
