GALVIN GREEN PRODUCT CARE
Every Galvin Green product comes with care instructions. It is important that you follow these in order to properly take care of your garment.
CARE INSTRUCTIONS FOR WATERPROOF GARMENTS:
Machine wash on a warm permanent press cycle (105°F/40°C) using a small amount of liquid detergent. Rinse twice, and minimize spinning to reduce creasing. Don’t use powder detergents, fabric softeners, stain removers, or bleach. Don’t wash your waterproofs with heavily soiled clothing.
Line dry your garment, or tumble dry it on a warm, gentle cycle. Once it’s dry, tumble dry the garment for 20 minutes to reactivate the durable water-repellent (DWR) treatment on the outer fabric. You can do this anytime you notice the water repellency needs a boost.
*Do not tumble dry GORE-TEX SHAKEDRY™ garments.
We recommend home laundering. If professional dry cleaning is necessary, request that the cleaner use clear distilled hydrocarbon solvent for rinsing, and then spray DWR on the garment’s outer fabric before drying.
*Do not dry clean GORE-TEX SHAKEDRY™ garments.
If you can’t tumble dry to reactivate the DWR, iron the dried garment on a gentle setting (warm, no steam) by placing a towel or cloth between the garment and the iron.
Do not use any chlorine-based bleaches as they will damage the product.
WATER REPELLENT TREATMENT*
If water repellency can no longer be reactivated by washing and drying, you’ll need to reapply a durable water repellent (DWR). Be sure to always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for reapplication — and don’t forget to activate it by following our instructions for tumble drying or ironing.
*Do not tumble dry or apply DWR treatment to GORE-TEX SHAKEDRY™ garments.
