Waterproof coats


Recommended Posts

I have a variety of waterproof coats that have been used several times, i have been hesitant to wash these as i am afraid of damaging them, they are now getting a bit wiffy, smells of wet dog etc. I will be tackling a hand wash of my shooting clothes and was wondering what detergents people use that doesnt damage the waterproof membrane in the clothes.

Just hang them on the washing line and hand wash with warm soapy water , Then you can decide how hard to rub if there spots of blood etc 

nail on the head......hand wash with fairy snowflakes or similar....treat them like a very expensive jumper......some of the coats can be machine washed on a gentle wash...but be careful of the washing powder........spin dry after rinsing hang out side on line

check the label as well.......

If they really need a wash this but run the washing machine empty without detergent for a cycle to flush it through. If not just soak in water then hose down before drying.in some cases a run through the drier can help.
