How to Wash a Sleeping Bag

The practitioner of mountain activity that coexists with low temperatures has the dream of buying a jacket, vest and sleeping bag with lining of feathers or goose down.

The employee in the lining material is highly efficient for heating, and due to the quality and cost (not any manufacturer that complies with the animals).

The jackets of feather or goose feather are known for older climbers as “Duvet” (meaning Duvet in French).

Call a jacket with goose feather lining of Duvet is the same of referring to a female top Bustier and so on: it is a Word.

The equipment is also known internationally as “Down jacket”.

After heavy use the jacket from time to time needs to be washed, and it requires special care, because not just any place, or anywhere that could be carried out this work.

One of the major disadvantages that exist for the jacket with lining of feather or goose feather is your weakness before the moisture, because if this material wet fira a species of folder and loses completely its characteristics, not serving more to isolate the temperature.

If it is not dried properly (so that the feathers are wet despreguem) the equipment is rendered useless.

Some more sophisticated laundries have appropriate equipment and materials, as well as specific training, for washing products with photo of goose feather.

There is a legend among older climbers there are no specialized companies, but it’s not true.

In the laundries of Brazil great centers like São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Curitiba have qualified companies to do so.

By using chemicals, NEVER dry wash your down sleeping bags.

However this type of specialized and differentiated service, is expensive and costly and can make washing impractical depending on the climber’s budget.

There is also the option of washing at home taking some care.

Washing Equipment

Step 1

To wash in washing machines, use only those that have front access (horizontal axis) and high capacity (greater than 8 litres).

For washing machines with access at the top (vertical axis) is recommended to have a capacity above 10 litres and washed

one piece at a time.

Step 2

nickwaxSet the washing machine to warm water, detergent neutral without scent or dye. Important to remember that NEVER use hot or cold water, always warm.

In the USA sell a specific product for washing with lining of pen or plume of goose: “Down Wash”. Never use liquid detergent, fabric softener and bleach.

Step 3

After the wash cycle has finished, repeat the whole process again.

After the second round of washing have finished, try rinsing twice to eliminate SOAP residue.

Step 4

For drying of equipment use a dryer with front entrance (horizontal axis of rotation) and low heat (low heat).

When placing the equipment inside the dryer, place two tennis balls or squash clean so that the lining is “massaged” in drying.

This massage is for the feathers loose of course.

Remove the equipment occasionally for some shakes. These shakes help to loosen the feathers.

To dry a jacket takes 3 to 4 hours, and a sleeping bag up to 8 hours.
