Quick Method – Jacket and Pants Outer Shells and Liners
For heavily soiled garments, pre-treat with Simple Green Degreaser. Similar pre-wash sprays such as Shout or Oxi Magic are also effective but we find Simple Green gets the best results. Be sure to follow the 10 to 1, water to spray dilution ratio recommended by Simple Green. Spray a light coat over the entire surface and gently work in with the soft and rough side of a dish sponge. Next, rinse off the garment with a garden hose, then pat dry with a towel and let hang dry away from direct heat. As the garment will not be totally submerged in water, it is acceptable to leave the protectors in place while washing. After the garment is dry, shoot the interior with a generous coating of Febreze anti odor spray.
Hand Washing – Jacket and Pants Outer Shells and Liners
For heavily soiled garments, pre-treat with Simple Green Degreaser or a similar pre-wash spray as recommended above. The shell can then be submerged in a mild solution of Woolite and Luke warm water for gentle hand washing. Be sure to remove all the protectors before washing. After washing, pat dry with a towel and let hang dry away from direct heat.
Caution – Machine Washing and Drying or Dry Cleaning
Machine washing and drying and dry cleaning is not recommended for our outer shells and the majority of our liner systems as this will break down the micro bead technology found in the 3M Scotchlite reflective trim and the heat sealed seam tape used on our waterproof garments.
Exceptions for Machine Washing and Drying or Dry Cleaning
As the following items are not constructed with waterproof seam seal heat tape and do not include reflective detailing, they can be machined washed on gentle cycle in mild detergent and placed in a dryer on a cool temperature setting. Dry cleaning is also acceptable. Ranger liner jacket, Ranger liner pants, Promax liner pant, MotoQuest soft shell liner jacket plus the removable quilted insulation layer for the Airglide, Alpha, Dakar, MotoQuest and Expedition jackets.
