Follow care label instructions.||Machine Wash:|1.Remove all detergent build-up from the detergent dispenser.|2.Place clean item in washing machine (maximum 1 item).|3.Use 3 full caps (150ml) for 1 item.|4.Run 30° synthetic cycle and slow spin.||Hand Wash (use gloves):|1.Immerse clean item(s) in hand-hot water. For clothing: use 3 full caps (150ml) for 1 item in a bowl and 6 full caps (300ml) for 2 items in a bath tub. Fully submerge item(s) in water. For sleeping bags: use 6 full caps (300ml) in 4cm deep water in a bathtub.*|2.Agitate to mix, leave to soak for 5-10 minutes, then agitate thoroughly. |3.Rinse clothing in cold water until water runs clear. For sleeping bags repeat process, drain and gently press bag to expel excess water. ||Drying: Spin dry 3 times (slow spin). If care label allows, tumble dry according to manufacturer’s instructions on a low setting until ‘clumps’ have disappeared. Shaking and patting the item regularly during drying process will help restore loft to the down. *3-4 season down sleeping bags should be professionally cleaned or waterproofed.||To maintain waterproofing always
