Thermal appeal with down fill has to be treated specially. The general rule is: was as little as possible and as often as necessary. Use liquid detergent for fine wash or for functional clothing. We recommend Nikwax Down Wash.
No parts required.
There are symbols for the recommended care products on the smaller label. We recommend Nikwax Down Wash for the washing cycle and TX Direct Spray from Nikwax for waterproofing if necessary.
Down jackets usually are washed at 30 °C with a gentle cycle. You'll find detailed information on the sewn in care label.
Set your washing machine to a gentle cycle with extra rinse and the recommended temperature. If you are using NIKWAX Down Wash, you can omit the extra rinse cycle. The extra rinse cycle is important for ensuring that no residues are left behind on the product.
After the wash cycle, put the down jacket into the dryer with 2 to 3 tennis balls. Dry for 40 – 60 minutes at a low temperature using the gentle cycle.
Hang the jacket up on a clothes hanger, close all zips and spray evenly with the waterproofing spray. This keeps the inside untreated so that moisture can be absorbed and transferred outward.
