How to Wash and Care for Your Down Jackets

As temperatures drop, our down jackets become our trusty companions for staying warm and stylish. But do you know the best ways to care for these cozy investments? Let's dive into the nuances of washing, drying, and storing your duck down jackets to keep them in top-notch condition.

Wash Method: Handwash vs. Machine Wash

Handwashing:

Gentleness is key when it comes to washing down jackets. Start by filling a basin with lukewarm water and a mild detergent. Gently agitate the water and submerge your jacket. Gently rub any soiled areas and rinse thoroughly. Avoid wringing, instead, press out excess water.

Machine Washing:

For those preferring the convenience of a machine, opt for a front-loading washer and a delicate cycle. Use a gentle detergent, and add a few tennis balls or dryer balls to aid in maintaining the jacket's loft. Fasten all zippers and close snaps before tossing it in.

Detergent Selection

Choosing the right detergent is crucial. Look for detergents specifically designed for delicate fabrics. Steer clear of harsh chemicals that can strip the natural oils from down filling.

Drying Techniques

After washing, resist the temptation to wring out excess water. Instead, gently press the water out. Air-dry your jacket by laying it flat on a clean, dry towel or hang it on a padded hanger. If you choose to use a dryer, select a low heat setting, and add tennis balls or dryer balls to prevent clumping.

Storage Tips

Proper storage is essential for maintaining the loft of your cropped puffer jacket. Invest in breathable garment bags or cotton storage bags to protect it from dust. Avoid long-term compression, and periodically fluff your jacket to restore its insulation.

Common Mistakes to Avoid

Never use fabric softeners, as they can coat the down and reduce its loft.

Avoid using high heat during drying, as it can damage the delicate down fibers.

Don't store your jacket in plastic bags; down needs to breathe.
