How To Safely Clean A Down Jacket At Home | Will’s World

With the usual high prices that down jackets come at coupled with the delicate feeling they tend to have, washing one can be a daunting prospect. Don't worry though, the process is actually easier and safer than you might think...

There’s only one thing worse than a dirty and smelly down jacket and that’s a down jacket that’s been ruined by incorrect washing. In this episode, OM editor Will goes through the steps he takes each time he washes and dries his puffer at home, including how to restore loft, how to re-proof a jacket so it can repel rain and how to get rid of bad smells like bonfire (and burnt sausages) – it’s all here.
