Care instructions

How to care for GORE-TEX products

GORE-TEX® products are not only durable, but also easy to clean. Regular maintenance will ensure excellent performance and extend the life of the product. Care instructions are listed on the Sweet Protection product tag.

In general, there are the following cleaning methods: Fully zip the front closure, pockets and pit zips and secure all flaps and straps before washing. For best performance, always follow the manufacturer's instructions.

Machine wash on warm press cycle (105º F/40º C) using a small amount of liquid detergent. Rinse twice and rotate to a minimum to reduce wrinkles. Do not use products that contain powdered detergents, fabric softeners, conditioners, stain removers, or bleach as they will affect the performance of the garment. Do not wash with heavily soiled clothing.

Do not use chlorine bleach.

Line dry your clothes or tumble dry them on a warm, gentle cycle. Once dry, tumble dry for 20 minutes to restore the DWR (durable water repellent) finish on the outer fabric.

If tumble drying is not possible, place a towel or cloth between the garment and the iron and iron the dry garment on a gentle setting (warm, no steam). This reactivates the DWR treatment applied to the outer fabric of the garment.

Reactivate by washing and tumble drying until you no longer see results. Then apply fresh DWR spray and start over. Do not wash it off.

Please dry clean. Gore recommends washing at home. If you need professional dry cleaning, ask them to use a distilled hydrocarbon-based clear solvent for rinsing and to spray DWR on the outer fabric of the garment before drying.

If the factory-applied water repellent treatment no longer reactivates, apply a new water repellent treatment (available at local outdoor retailers) to the outer fabric of the garment.

How to care for down products

It's a good idea to wash your down jacket once in a while. Also, if you dry it in a tumbler, it will swell more and retain more heat. Care instructions are listed on the Sweet Protection product tag.

How to wash and dry

- Remove mud and dirt and unzip.

- If washing the product in the washing machine, use a gentle soap and wash on a gentle cycle of 105º F/40º C. Please rinse twice. Do not use bleach. Do not use fabric softener or dry clean.

- Tumble dry on low heat using 2 tennis balls (or a special drying ball). The ball agitates the downfill and feathers, helping the loft return to maximum warmth.

- After the season is over, store your down jacket in a down bag or hang it up. That way, your down jacket will maintain its fullness and be ready for the next cold day.

How to care for wool products

With proper care, wool clothing can last for decades. Luckily, nature does most of the work for you when it comes to wool. Wool is a wonderful natural product that is very good at keeping itself clean. Wool naturally repels bacteria and acts as an antibacterial and antibiotic agent.

This means they don't need to be washed as often as cotton or synthetic clothing. Especially in humid seasons, just being exposed to the air can be beneficial. As moist air passes through your clothes, it picks up dirt and odors and carries them with you.

How to wash and dry

- Avoid using or washing together with other clothing with zippers or Velcro, as wool knit threads may tear easily.

- Always follow the washing instructions on the care label on the garment.

- Using detergents made specifically for wool will help the fibers last longer.

- Hand wash or use the "Wool Wash" program, which is compatible with most washing machines.

- For small stains, wipe the affected area directly with a brush and then rinse with clean, cold water.

- Do not wash wool products frequently. You can keep the wool fresh by simply drying it after use.

- Avoid tumble drying. It's a myth that high temperatures cause wool products to shrink or become damaged. In fact, agitation is what causes the wool fibers to feel and shrink.

- Especially for thick wool items like knit sweaters, dry flat to maintain the garment's shape. Wet wool will stretch when hung, especially if it's a thick wool product like a knit sweater.

- Once dry, you're ready for another great day in the mountains.
