That makes most of the owners of this type of products renounce to their washing- fear of spoiling a product that is not exactly cheap 🤯.

Why do we say “spoil”?

Well, this is a “paradigm” that we all have in our heads and that is associated with two basic variables:

  • The washing machine 🧺: A machine “infernal” that will be turning our precious technical clothing round and round. Will it resist? Will it lose its qualities?
  • Feathers 🪶: When you continuously apply water to a feather product, what ends up happening is that the feathers clump together, turning the precious piece of clothing into a jumble.

And of course… who takes a gamble with a product of these characteristics? because my little people… and the solution is to “no maintenance“. But, like any piece of clothing, down jackets require periodic maintenance. That is to say, it is so bad the “traditional washing“is as bad as “not doing it” 😱.

There is a myth that this same thing can be done using “tennis balls”… well, it can be an option, but you have to take into account that these balls are much harder and of a much more aggressive material towards our garments, so if we do it regularly they will end up damaging the garment… For one day and to get out of trouble, ok … but if you want your garments to last, do not use tennis balls or similar.

“Something else for your down jackets?
