Product Maintenance

How to care for your Galvin Green garment for ultimate longevity.
These are some of our best tips!

Every Galvin Green product comes with care instructions, it is important that you follow these in order to properly take care of your garment.

Caring for a Gore-Tex garment


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 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.

Dry Clean*

We recommend home laundering. But if professional dry cleaning is necessary, request that the cleaner use clear distilled hydrocarbon solvent (a bit of a mouthful, we know) 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.


Chlorine-based bleaches could damage your product. So don’t use them anywhere on it.


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 dry or ironing.

* Do not tumble dry GORE-TEX SHAKEDRY™ garments.
* Do not apply DWR treatment to GORE-TEX SHAKEDRY™ garments.
