HELLY HANSEN WASHING AND MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS


Remember to always check for washing instructions on the garment

HELLY TECH®

Machine washable however the less you wash any waterproof garment the longer it will last and the more waterproof it will stay.

Temperature : Max 40 °C. For best results wash in cold, gently cycle.

Detergent : Technical detergent intended for breathable fabric (available in sports shops). You can also use fluid detergent. You should never use powder detergent and a natural soap is best as it will not affect the garments waterproofing as much as a chemical detergent.

Fabric softener : No

Dryer : No

Coating : Coating intended for breathable fabrics.You will achieve the best results by using the coating while the garment is wet.

Coating frequency : Every 5-8 times the garment have been soaked or washed. We recommend that you use coating on your garment when the water no longer bounces of the garments surface.

Other : If using the garment in or around salt water always rinse the jacket after use with fresh water. This will keep the jacket waterproof and breathable and stop any salt crystallizing on the zippers.


DOWN


Temperature : Max 30°C. For best results wash in cold, gentle cycle.

Detergent : We recommend down detergent (available in sports shops). Otherwise you can use a small amount of fluid detergent.

Fabric softener : No

Dryer :Down garments MUST be dried in the dryer after washing. Dry on low heat for up to 6-7 hours (depending on the size of the jacket). Dry the jacket together with tennis balls or shoes to fluff up the down inside the jacket. It’s very important that the jacket gets completely dry. Down jackets with a rigid outer layer have to be dried inside out to get the down fluffed up. If you don’t have a dryer you will have to dry clean the jacket.
