Before washing, turn the garment inside out. This protects the material from rubbing and wear during the wash cycle.
Zips and velcro fasteners should always be closed, to prevent small hairs, threads etc. getting stuck in them and reduce wear due to washing.
Use a mild liquid detergent, preferably a special detergent such as NikWax Tech Wash for performance textiles.
Do not use fabric softener, as this can reduce the breathability of the membrane.
Do not fill the washing machine completely.
Only use the tumble drier when this is clearly stated on the label.
Never iron fleece jackets, just shake them out after washing with mild deter-gent.
Performance shirts and blouses dry quickly, so it is not necessary to tumble dry them. This protects not only the material but also the environment.
