Biopod DownWool Extreme Light
HOW TO WASH DOWNWOOL® SLEEPING BAGS
- Maximum 30°C by hand or on a wool cycle
- Turn inside out and wash with down detergent
- Program additional rinsing process
- Spin at a maximum of 600 rpm
- Tumble drying with 2 - 3 tennis balls
Worth knowing: The additional rinse cycle ensures that all detergent residues are really rinsed out of the delicate down. When you then take the sleeping bag out of the machine, loosen it up a bit and then give it another spin cycle at a maximum of 600 revolutions. Do not use fabric softener!
If you put 2 to 3 clean tennis balls in the dryer together with the DownWool® sleeping bag, then the care result will be optimal. The drying temperature should be max. 60° C and dry in approx. 5 intervals of 1 hour each; the process may have to be repeated the next day or continued until the sleeping bag is dry.
Important: After each drying cycle, take the sleeping bag out of the machine, shake it well and let it cool down for a short time.
If your sleeping bag is not properly dried and fluffed up (tennis balls), clumps of down will form which are very difficult to dissolve again. - Therefore, never hang the item to dry, e.g. on the clothesline!
Depending on the waterproofness of the outer material, the drying process can take different amounts of time (up to 2 days). If the article still does not have its original thickness, the drying operations must be repeated. As long as the article is damp, odors can also form.
Please keep the sleeping bag dry in the storage bag provided. Never leave the sleeping bag in the compression bag for a long time, otherwise the insulation can be damaged.
