How do I wash my sleeping bag?
The most gentle way to clean your sleeping bag is in the bathtub. Soak the sleeping bag in lukewarm water (about 30 ° C) and UNIVERSAL CLEANER PLUS or UNIVERSAL DOWN CLEANER (2 caps). Do not wring or scrub under any circumstances. If soiled heavily, repeat the wash cycle with fresh detergent. Then thoroughly rinse the sleeping bag several times and squeeze out gently afterwards.
The machine must have a large drum with a capacity of at least 8, ideally up to 12 kg, and the sleeping bag must fit inside without being squashed. The best appliances for this can be found in launderettes.Then thoroughly rinse the sleeping bag with 2 to 3 cycles and finally spin on a short, slow spin cycle. The more gentle and sleeping bag-friendly method is simply to hand wash.
Close all zip and Velcro fasteners and remove any residue in the washing machine's detergent compartment. Put UNIVERSAL CLEANER PLUS or UNIVERSAL DOWN CLEANER (2 Verschlusskappen) into the detergent draw. Do not use fabric softeners. Use a gentle/wool cycle at 30 °C.
