Wash sleeping bag

The maintenance mode of a sleeping bag depends on Gametate:

  • If it is of polyester wadding, put your sleeping bag in the drum of the washing machine. Add to that 2 or 3 tennis balls (new or previously cleaned balls bleach, if possible): they allow better hype and therefore a better wash the sleeping bag, without damaging it. Launch a program at 30°, no spin. Then make dry bag outdoors.
  • If it is down, the golden rule is to wash your sleeping bag as little as possible. The safest way is to clean the sleeping bag by a professional, the pressing. It is especially important to check that the sleeping bag is completely dry, especially at the seams.

For easier maintenance, and to avoid soiling the inside of the sleeping bag, it is possible to insert a sheet of cotton or silk bag.

Maintain a sleeping bag

  • The down aging badly when compressed. It is best to store your down sleeping bag in a broad compression cover. The sleeping bags Quechua trimmed down, for example, are sold with this type of covers, which provide easy storage without damaging the sleeping bag, and without leaving the unfolded bag in a closet.
  • However, a sleeping bag lined with polyester batting may be stored in a compact compression bag in which it is sold. The best is even insert the sleeping bag “loose” in its cover, rather than roll it carefully: for example, cotton fibers will not always be crushed in one place.
