• i dont believe it's water repellant, but it is fast drying. normal soap with no bleach component should be fine. good luck.

  • There is nothing on the attached washing instructions label about that. Just "Machine wash cold with like colors." I don't find anything in the written tags and such that came with it either.

  • I never thought about that. I just looked at the cleaning directions on the label and it said, no bleach, machine wash cold.

  • The short answer is that I do not know for sure. The label says cold water with like colored clothing. There is no specific detergent recommendation. That said, I clean all my nylon clothing in cold water in "Woolite" with the machine set on gentle cycle and then air dry (no dryer). If the water repellency fails there is a product called "Revivex" which will restore water repellency. I've used this process on water repellant nylon fishing hats with success. Otherwise I have not been too concerned with water repellency with shirts or pants because the material dries so quickly. For me, moisture wicking is the most important factor. Good luck.
