Proper care of your synthetic fiber-filled sleeping bag and padded clothes helps preserve the thermal properties of your products and may significantly extend the life of the products.

Keeping them clean
Airing: When using a sleeping bag or padded clothing, air them outside regularly. This helps to remove moisture and odors and maintain their freshness.

Cleaning: Wash the sleeping bag or clothing as needed according to the instructions. Follow the washing instructions that come with the garment or sleeping bag. Most products filled with artificial fibers can be washed in the washing machine.

Detergent: Use a mild detergent that does not leave any residue on the filling. Avoid strong detergents and fabric softeners, as they can weaken the insulation of the filling. Please note that there are also special detergents for artificial fiber fillings, which can fluff up the material and on the other hand also saturate the fibers during washing. So take a lgood ook at the range of detergents and choose one that is suitable for use with your synthetic fiber-filled product.

Gentle wash: Use a gentle wash program and the recommended temperature. Do not use too much spinning as it can strain the filling. Also check your washing machine to see if it has a special washing program for outdoor equipment. The designed machine program might work well for this purpose as it is.

Rinse well: Make sure that the detergent is rinsed throughout so that all detergent residues are removed from the product properly. If necessary, use extra rinse in the washing program.

Dry carefully: Dry the sleeping bag or garment in an airy place with a tumble dryer or hang it outside. Make sure it is completely dry before storing, as moisture can reduce the insulating properties of the filling.

Avoid extreme heat: Avoid excessive heat, such as direct sunlight or high tumble dryer temperatures, as excessive heat can damage the filling.

Store the product in a dry place: Store the sleeping bag or padded clothing in a dry and airy place where they are not exposed to moisture.
Use an airy and breathable storage bag to protect the product from dust and dirt and on the other hand, also avoid storing the product too tightly. Airy storage keeps the fiber fluffy.

Small fixes
Inspect and repair: Inspect the sleeping bag or garment regularly for possible damage, such as tears or loose stitching. Fix small faults before they escalate into bigger ones.
