Waterproof washing no-nos
- There are two household no-nos that could ruin your lovely expensive waterproof jacket in a single wash - biological powder and fabric conditioner. Keep your coats away from them!
- Always use non-bio detergent (the biological stuff can break down the waterproof barrier on the fabric) and leave the conditioner on the shelf (ingredients in this can mess with the breathability of the material).
- Wash at a temperature according to the label inside and don't tumble dry unless the washing instructions say it's OK to do so.
