Down coat is a bogey alkaline substance, should not be washed with washing machine agitation or hand rub, not be wringed bogey and not be baked with bogey flames.
The correct methods to take care of down coats are below:
First prepare a pot of warm water, and put the right amount of detergent in the water.
Put the down coat into the water for 10 minutes and then start to clean it, but not to rub it with hands. On the dirty places, must use a soft-bristled toothbrush to clean it. I remember one of my friends, when she try to clean her Japanese style clothing down coat, she rub it with hands strongly, and after it was dried, its shape changed bad.
In the second times to wash down coat, is the time for tips. Put trickle of vinegar (vinegar at home can be a general amount of cooking) into the water, and soak 5-10 minutes, then put down jacket, roughly rub it.
When dry the water from the coat, should along the lines of this squeeze hands on it, not make it exposure to the sun. After it was dried, you will find the coat is very flat but not fluffy, you can beat the coat on the bed clothes hanger with a large area, throughout every hit, then you will find clothes clean and restore the original fluffy, and there is no odor and unsightly white stains.
If the down coat is dirty, the only way to clean is washing it overall. First, take the coat to be soaked in cold water for 20 minutes. Second, put about 2 tablespoons of detergent into at 20-30 ℃ of water to stir, then put squeezed down coat into the water and make it be soaked about 5-10 minutes. Third, take out the coat from the washing liquid to a clean tile platen, and then with a soft scrub brush dipped washing liquid gently from the inside to the outside of the coat. Forth, after scrubing clean, take the coat into the washing liquid and rinse it several times, then rinse it twice in warm water in 30 ℃, then rinsed three times into the water to completely remove detergent residue. After wrapped gently suck out the coat’s water with a dry towel, and then placed in the sun or a ventilated place to dry.
After the rainy season of summer and autumn, it’s better to take the down coat out to dry to prevent mildew; If you find a moldy, use cotton balls dipped alcohol wipe, and dry it with clean wet towel, and then properly collection. But what should be noticed is that not place it under direct sunlight, otherwise it may fade into the newly installed the old clothes.
In short, as long as you are careful maintenance, when winter comes, you can be the first to wear the new winter clothes, enjoy the comfort and warmth.
