Wash your sleeping bag

Well there not going to be missed… It is best to assume that a sleeping bag does not wash. Good… it’s do not get you too tell me you. OK go for a wash then.

Wash a waterproof sleeping bag

I will then start with items in pen. After you have your detergent, SOAP of Marseille or a laundry special down, need you a bit of time and a couple nice days dry and sunny.

  • Start by weighing your down
  • Let marinate a few hours in a tub or a large basin with Marseille SOAP.
  • Drain water and rinse without raising the down because the weight of the water could crack the internal partitions.Prefer to roll it to drive the water contained inside.
  • Once the first “scrub” and spin by hand made…
  • Put your hand inside your washing machine to identify some small bumps that would be likely to tear your bag.
  • Put your detergent as well as tennis balls which will avoid training packages of down.
  • Start the washing machine on a gentle cycle and very slow spin.
  • Set the machine on rinse and do a second
  • Prefer several rinsing until the total disappearance of foam
  • Spin slow (even do it several times)
  • Now the tricky part: drying
  • Place your duvet in a dryer with tennis balls and rotate at low temperatures.It will take a lot of cycle in order to obtain a correct drying.
  • Weigh your down.If it is heavier that the starting weight is that it is not dry.
  • Separate the clumps of hair that will have been formed and redone a cycle.
  • Lay it out in order to complete the drying process and separate the last clods by hand
  • Weigh your down again.If you arrive at the same weight as in the beginning, it’s good. It is lighter, it’s that it was really time to wash…

Washing can give back of the Loft to your down but it’s an operation to not perform unless it is really necessary. Wash it too often will degrade permanently inflating and therefore the insulation.

Wash a synthetic sleeping bag

For synthetic, it is less restrictive. Wash the machine (with the SOAP of Marseille or natural detergent) on a delicate cycle with tennis balls and then gently wring out several times. Dry it in the dryer with a little warm but long program with tennis balls. Finish drying outdoors. You can also weigh it before and after in order to determine whether it is really dry.

Synthetic materials being less fragile than down you can wash it more regularly. Attention when, this operation must remain exceptional and too frequent washes will love it.

Here we see through that down the clods and filled no space. This cold spot does not announce a very good night in perspective… is to wash may be advisable.

If you do not feel comfortable in these operations, some manufacturers offer to wash your sleeping bags: Mountain Equipment, Triple Zero, Valandré
