GENERAL FABRIC CARE
There are some simple rules to follow when washing your Endura garments, to ensure a long life for the garment and that they are cleaned effectively without damaging their technical properties.
- After use, do not leave the garment rolled up in a wet state, as this will encourage bacteria and mold, membrane delamination and/or color migration.
- Always follow the washing instructions on the garment label, if these cannot be found, then you can contact UKenquiry@endura.co.uk
- All garments that can be machine washed should be washed at 86°F. For full wash care instructions please refer to the care label.
- Always wash dark colors separately.
- Do not use fabric softener as this will damage the adhesion of seam tapes on waterproof fabrics and can also damage DWR (Durable Water Repellency) coatings.
- Do not tumble dry. Instead, drip dry naturally but avoid drying in direct strong sunlight.
- Do not dry clean.
To reactivate the DWR (Durable Water Repellency) on waterproof garments, use a cool iron setting, if that is permitted on the care label. Garments can also be reproofed using waterproofing agents such as Nikwax or Granger’s. Always follow the application instructions. The garment should be clean and dry before starting this process. Be sure to avoid areas that are not made of fabric (eg. buttons and zippers) and stand well back to avoid inhaling chemicals. Also be aware that these products may be flammable.
