    cleaning harkila pro hunter gear.

    Hi
    Anyone got some helpful hints on what type of washing powder is safest/best to wash harkila pro hunter jacket and trousers?

    Same for all outdoor material, non bio powder at low temps and a hand wash cycle.
    I have in the past used some of the proprietary wash/care stuff from Grangers and found it no better
    than plain old non bio or even flaked hand soap.

    Non biological and without UV whiteners. Remember you'll need to reactivate the Goretex after washing

    Thanks guys.
    I have been just cleaning off the worst areas of mud with a sponge and water, but I guess it will need a good wash someday!

    What Eric means is reactivate the DWR (durable water resistant) coating on the outside of the garment, rather than the Gore-text itself (which is permanent). The DWR is what stops water soaking the outer face fabric, to stop you from having a layer of cold wet fabric next to your body. A warm-ish tumble dry is a good way to 're-activate' the DWR if the care label allows. When it's dry pour some water on and it should bead up and run straight off. If it soaks in you'll need to apply new DWR in the form of Grangers or Nikwax spray-on proofer.
