Outdoor Gear Care
Sleeping bags can usually be washed but check the care instructions before
cleaning. Many contain down or fiber filling and require different care methods.
Wash sleeping bags separately on a gentle cucle. Add detergent and partially
fill with warm water. Submerge the sleeping bag in the water to expel air, then
allow the washer to finish filling.
Periodically stop the washer,open the lid, and press air from the sleeping bag
to ensure thorough cleaning. Tumble dry at regular temperatures. Consider adding
a clean tennis ball to the dryer to fluff up the filling.
If your sleeping bag is too bulky for your washer, we'll be more than happy to
get it ready for the next trip.
