How often should I wash a puffer coat?

It’s not advisable to wash a puffer coat more than twice each season.
 

How to wash a puffer?

  1. Preparation.
  2. Empty out all of the pockets, close the zippers and turn it inside out.

    Tip! Lubricate the zipper with gel to prevent it from rusting.

     

  3. Machine or hand-wash.
  4. Since it’s such a large garment, washing it by hand can be somewhat tedious and inconvenient; you would need a large container or do it in the bathtub.
     

  5. Cold water.
  6. If you use the washing machine, choose a cold program and put only the coat in the machine without any other pieces so it’s not squashed with other clothing and it gets a proper wash.
     

  7. Long program with spin dry to prevent damage.

  9. You can use the dryer to dry the puffer coat.
  10. Choose a delicate spin program.

    Tip! Insert 2 or 3 tennis balls into the dryer to help the jacket return to its full loft.

     

  11. If you let it dry out, remember to shake it every 2-3 hours.

    How to store

    Fold, but don’t crush it. Hang to avoid pressing it against other garments.
