USAGE OF COOKIES
Cleaner for down filled clothing and gear. Effectively removes dirt whilst revitalising insultion and water-repellency.
Down keeps you warm because it puffs up and traps air. Eventually, if down is not cleaned properly, body oils and grime will migrate into the down and inhibit its elasticity, stopping it from regaining its loft and bulk when it is unpacked. What’s more, dirt is generally water attractive, and if the outer fabric easily absorbs water, rain and condensation can easily transfer into the down, which will also cause it to lose its loft and insulation.
Down Wash protects the loft of down in three Ways:
Firstly Down Wash removes body oils from the inside fabric and grime form the external fabric. Secondly, it cleanses the actual of down of dust and odours, and finally, it does all of that without removing the water-repellency of the outer fabric, so that the down is less vulnerable to rain and condensation.
Use Down Wash when your down equipment soaks up water:
You should not wait until your down equipment is thoroughly dirty before cleaning it. The longer you leave it, the more damage you can potentially do to it. So as soon as you see that the outer surface of your down jacket easily absorbs water, you will know that there is a layer of dirt on the surface. Time to clean your jacket.
You can use Down Wash in a washing machine:
Remove all detergent build-up from the detergent dispenser.
Place item in washing machine (maximum 1 item).
Use 150ml in medium/hard water* areas and 100ml in soft water areas.
Wash according to care label, preferably on low setting and slow spin.
Run at least one additional fast spin cycle after the washing cycle is complete.
