Sleeping Bag Care

Dijukno you can revive your down sleeping bag that you didn't properly store? Airing it out is a good bet between trips, but you likely need
to take a trip to the laundry mat. Don’t try to do this at home. You need the giant commercial machines to accommodate a sleeping bag and prevent damage. Invest in a purpose-built sleeping bag soap like Nikwax Tech Wash. While you’re at it, you may as well give it a new waterproof coating so it will repel rain and tent condensation more effectively. For this step, use a treatment like McNett Spray On Water Repellent, apply once you remove it from the washer, but before you put it in the dryer. Follow these steps and your down bag should be as good as new.

But don’t make the same mistake again:
Between trips, always store it in the big cotton sack it came with or a king size pillow case.  Also, use a sleeping bag liner.
