Review your garment's care label for any special care instructions.
It’s best to hand-wash your down and synthetic garments. Fill a bathtub with warm water, soak the garment, add Nikwax Down or Tech Wash (preferred) or a gentle soap such as Woolite, Ivory Flakes, or Dr. Bronner's Magic Soaps, kneed the soapy water through the baffles, and then rinse until the water is fairly clean. To dry, follow the instructions below. DO NOT DRY CLEAN! DO NOT USE BLEACH OR FABRIC SOFTENER! Small stains such as sap, tar, or oils can be spot cleaned using soap or diluted spot-cleaning solvent (such as Shout or Spray-N-Wash). Move down away from the spot being cleaned.
It is possible to machine-wash down and synthetic garments. First, though, consider the following factors:
Particularly in the case of down garments, drying is as important as washing. Down clothing can appear to be dry from the outside while, in fact, its core is still damp, which can lead to mildew.
Restoring DWR Finish
The DWR finish can be degraded by normal wear and tear, as well as exposure to contaminants such as oil, dirt and detergent residue. (Detergents strip the DWR finish by leaving water-attractive molecules in the face fabric.) When a DWR finish is degraded, the garment will not shed water as effectively, causing the loft of the insulation and its ability to keep you warm to decline when it gets wet.
