Washing your recycled raincoat at home
A waterproof waterproof is a piece that is subject to rain (obviously) but also to snow, pollution or mud splashes! It thus tends to get dirty and to cover itself quickly with stains. So, since we can't entrust them to the dry cleaner as often as we'd like, we have to know how to take care of them ourselves and in complete safety. Here is our easy guide to clean your room Flotte !
Step 1: Washing your rain jacket
Good practices for washing your raincoat
Even before you drop off your garment Flotte in the washing machinewe advise you to close all the zips of your garment. If it is a raincoat Amelot for example, do not forget to close the central zip, as well as all the pockets.
You can then wash your jacket raincoat machine or hand wash, cold and up to 30°C, adding a very small amount of liquid detergent. Opt for a very moderate spinning to avoid creasing the garment unnecessarily. If your washing machine has a delicate program, don't hesitate to use it!
❌ It is strongly discouraged to use powdered detergents in direct contact with the garment. Also, do not use products that may contain fabric softeners, fabric conditioners or stain removers. Also avoid using chlorine on your garment. All of these elements will greatly reduce the effectiveness of the waterproof film on your jacket or coat.
💡 You are advised to wash your clothes Flotte alone, by hand or machine.
Step 2: Drying the garment
Once the garment machine washed, we advise you to lay it flat lay it flat or on a hangerand wait quietly for it to dry by itself.
❌ The use of the tumble dryer is strongly not recommended in order to preserve the waterproof fabric. You wouldn't want your raincoat to Flotte to be ruined, would you?
Step 3: Last but not least, iron your raincoat
After washing your garment Flotte, you can iron it, but only with steam! It is normal that the piece comes out of the machine a little crumpled, a little steam ironing with a steamer / steamer and it's done! Your garment Flotte is as good as new!
