If you still doubt whether you can or cannot wash these things in the machine, we will tell you.
Attention! Our advice is only suitable if the product label does not strictly state “dry dry cleaning only”. Between us, and in such a situation, many things tolerate washing well, but you must remember that you are acting at your own peril and risk. It is not in vain that manufacturers sew labels on clothes.
How to wash down jackets
Before washing, remove the fur from the down jacket (it certainly should not be washed), fasten zippers, buttons, do not forget to check the contents of the pockets (especially for children).
If there are stains, pre-treat them with a stain remover. The dirtiest places are cuffs, collar and pockets. They can be rubbed with a soft brush and detergent beforehand.
Choose the most delicate wash cycle. If the washing machine does not have a special program “Washing down jackets”, set the temperature to 30 degrees and spin at 600 rpm.
It is best to use a detergent for washing down jackets (there are a lot of them now, and most often they are sold where the down jackets and coats themselves are). The highest quality, but also the most expensive, products can be purchased in shops with tourist, mountain and ski equipment.
If such a product is not at hand, you can use a gel for washing clothes, but not powder.
Place 3 or 5 tennis balls in the padded drum. During washing, they get caught between the fabric and create more free air circulation. If you don't have tennis balls at home, you can make tight balls of socks by rolling them into balls.
Have you washed it? Add one more cycle - an extra rinse to remove residual detergent and avoid streaks.
It is great if the washing machine is also equipped with a dryer for clothes. Then put the dryer on the lowest temperature, and after it your down jacket will be like new.
Can be dried without tumble drying. Take out the down jacket, hang it on a hanger and wait until it dries, periodically whipping the filler with your hands and distributing it evenly.
How to clean UGGI
First, each boot needs to be vacuumed, outside and inside, to remove dust, sand and dirt that has accumulated.
Then take a microfiber cloth, lightly wet the boot under warm running water, and wipe the boot with a mild cleaner. Ideally, this is a Ugg Cleaner and Conditioner (costs about 400 rubles). If not, you can use any suede cleaner or rinse your shoes with a liquid wash gel.
After you have processed the ugg boots on top, clean the inside (sheepskin) of the boot with your hands as well, as you would normally wash things. Just do it gently, don't rub too hard.
Rinse off the lather with water and remember to rinse the inside of the sheepskin. In principle, you can stop at this and put the ugg boots to dry, stuffing them with paper napkins or old towels so that they do not lose their shape during drying and do not shrink.
If you want to go further and achieve perfect cleanliness, you need a washing machine. And yes! The ugg boots are machine washable. Only, of course, separately from other shoes and clothes (ugg boots shed heavily).
Set a gentle wash cycle (wool or silk). This means that the temperature should be 30 degrees. Then add an extra rinse, add revolutions to 1000, because you need to squeeze out as much water as possible, and add a delicate detergent (you can use detergent for wool).
After washing your ugg boots, stuff them with paper or microfiber towels to keep them in shape and let them dry. If there is underfloor heating in the bathroom or in the hallway, great. This will dry them faster. But you cannot dry ugg boots on a battery!
Once the shoes are dry, they can be sprayed with a water repellent suede spray.
