Step 1To start with cleaning your down jacket, brush and shake off any visible dirt that may be
caked on. Don’t pick as it may damage the jacket, depending on how long the dirt has been there. Close off all the pockets and front zips as well as Velcro straps or cuffs and, if your jacket has them, release tension on any elastic drawcords. Your jacket should look like it is going to be hung up in a storefront, but instead, it’s now ready for the washing machine.
Shake, empty and close zips and pockets
Note: Machine washing a down jacket is recommended and easy. There’s nothing to fear.
