How to care for your GORE-TEX outerwear

It is important to know how to wash your GORE-TEX outerwear properly. Well cared for skiing, mountaineering or any other outdoor gear will protect you better and last longer.

Care Instructions for Gore-Tex Outerwear

 

Taking good care of your GORE-TEX garments is easy - and that includes washing your waterproof GORE-TEX outerwear and non-waterproof clothing from the GORE-TEX INFINIUM™ product range. Be sure to carefully follow the garment manufacturer’s instructions too. (usually found on the inner label).

 

Things You'll Need

Washing Machine • Liquid Detergent • Dryer (recommended) • Iron, towel or cloth (optional, if no dryer available) • Water Repellent Treatment (as needed to restore water repellency)

 

 

 

 

 

WASH

STEP 1

 

  • Before washing, zip the front, pockets and pit zips completely.
  • Fasten any loose flaps and straps.

 

 

 

 

STEP 2

 

  • Machine wash (105°F/40°C). 
  • Use a small amount of liquid detergent. 
  • Rinse twice and minimize spinning.
  • Don't use powder detergents, fabric softeners, stain removers, or bleach.
  • Don't wash with heavily soiled clothing.

 

 

 

 

DRY

STEP 1

 

  • Tumble dry on a warm gentle cycle or line dry your outerwear.
  • Don't dry at a high temperature.

 

 

 

 

STEP 2

 

  • Once dry, tumble dry for a further 20 minutes to reactivate the durable water repellent (DWR) treatment. 
  • If a dryer isn't available, iron the garment on a gentle setting. 
  • When ironing, protect the garment with a towel or cloth.
  • Don't use steam.
  • You can do this step any time you notice the water repellency needs a boost.

 

 

 

 

RE-APPLY

STEP 1

 

  • If water doesn’t bead and run off after washing, you’ll need to reapply a durable water repellent (DWR). 
  • Use a DWR product of your choice, available as a pump-spray or a wash-in product.

 

 

 

 

STEP 2

 

  • Following application, tumble dry your garment for 20 minutes to activate the DWR treatment. 
  • Or iron the dry garment on a gentle setting (warm, no steam) , placing a towel or cloth between the garment and the iron.
  • Don't apply DWR to GORE-TEX products with a persistent beading surface (e.g. GORE-TEX SHAKEDRY™ garments). See special care instructions below.

 

 

 

 

SPECIAL CARE

GORE-TEX GARMENTS WITH PERSISTENT BEADING SURFACES

 

Washing GORE-TEX garments with persistent beading surfaces (e.g. GORE-TEX SHAKEDRY™ garments) is slightly different as they have no textile outer layer - the outer layer is the GORE-TEX membrane itself and there's no need for DWR.

 

  • Machine wash on delicate cycle at 105°F/40°C.
  • Do not dry clean.
  • Do not tumble dry.
  • Do not iron.
  • Do not bleach.
  • Do not apply DWR treatment.
