If the time has finally come to wash your down jacket, stop fretting and follow these simple steps to reinvigorate your favourite piece of kit.
The humble down jacket is both a beloved and key piece of every adventurer’s kit. But some of you may have learned the hard way that one way to kill its properties is by throwing it into the washing machine on a normal wash. Avoiding washing it altogether is not realistic either as it’s inevitable that it is going to get dirty and smelly from repeated exposure in wild places. To help increase the lifespan of your down jacket it is important to clean it, but not very often. And giving your puffer some TLC doesn’t have to be a pain, it’s surprisingly easy if you just follow a few simple steps and have a bit of patience.
And voila, good as new!
