GORE-TEX® Care Guide

The GORE-TEX®  membrane is highly durable and will not be spoiled.

A recommendation is to use ironing or tumble dry as heat improves the impregnation of the fabrics. If you treat your garments with care and follows the easy recommendations you will stay satisfied with your GORE-TEX® or WINDSTOPPER® products.

Care Instructions for GORE-TEX® Products

The cleaner the garment, the better it will breathe.

  • Our recommendations are to wash in 40 degrees with a soft detergent (any on the market), use no softener.
  • Rinse it twice if possible.
  • Dry the garments by tumble-drying or by ironing.
  • Use low temperature when tumble drying. The heat actually helps activate the surface treatment.
  • Do not bleach your garments.
  • Generally do not dry clean, but if professionally dry-cleaned, request clear distilled solvent rinse and spray repellent.
  • To remove a stubborn stain, test a small hidden area with a commercial stain remover before using it on a place that shows. You may find certain stains have to be removed professionally.
  • Rinse well.
