How to properly wash a down jacket: Before washing, fasten all buttons and zippers, and then turn the jacket inside out. It is recommended to choose a temperature of 30 degrees and use manual or delicate washing mode. High speeds should be avoided.
Some housewives advise adding green tennis balls to the wash to prevent too much fluff from pilling up.
Rules for drying a down jacket: The jacket should be dried flat out in the open air or in a well-ventilated area. It is important to avoid proximity to heating devices. It is not recommended to dry the down jacket in the bathroom, as humid air can negatively affect the condition of the down.
Regular shaking and straightening of the down jacket every 3-4 hours will help maintain its shape. It is important not to leave the jacket to dry for more than 48 hours to avoid shrinkage of the down.
