Being a Cactus customer, you're most likely to be wearing your Down Jacket further than the local cafe and it hasn't remained in pristine condition. The Cactus Down Jacket is an investment which should last you for years and years so to keep it in tip-top condition you will probably need to wash your jacket once a winter.
Cleaning the jacket with a special Down Cleaner will gently remove the dirt, oils and residue, and will rejuvenate the light & airy properties of the feathers, giving you a warmer, puffier down jacket - like when it was new.
Prior to washing, apply cleaner directly to heavily soiled areas. Close all zippers.
HAND WASH DIRECTIONS: Fill sink or tub with just enough warm water to submerge item; add ReviveX® Down Cleaner. Compress item to remove air and place in water. Rinse item repeatedly until the water runs clear (at least 3 times). Gently compress or roll item (do not wring) to expel water. Place item in the washing machine for 2 spin cycles to remove excess water before drying.
REGULAR MACHINE WASH: Add 5 capfuls of Down Cleaner to the washing machine. Wash with cold or warm water on a gentle cycle. Do not add fabric softener.
OPTIONAL: Before drying outdoor gear, apply ReviveX® Durable Waterproofing to the outer shell fabric. Apply liberally to shoulders, cuffs and zipper areas.
DRY: Dry garment by itself in a large dryer (it needs room to tumble freely) add some tennis balls or dryer balls to help break up the down clumps.
