How to wash clothing with membrane?

The appropriate parameters of waterproofness and breathability of the membrane are one of the key factors determining the purchase of mountain (functional) clothing. Unfortunately, there are many myths surrounding  the negative effects of washing clothes with climate membranes, all of them far from the truth. It is the excess of dirt and dust that clogs the micropores of the membrane and weakens its protective and breathable properties.
It is true, however, that when washing this type of clothing, you need to take special care so that your outdoor clothing can serve you for a long time. Hence, it is important to select and use specialized fluids and impregnates that will ensure long-term maintenance of the specialized properties of the clothing.


Below there are general rules for maintenance and cleaning of clothing to prevent the loss of its unique properties.

There are 3 types of specialist protective clothing detergents:

  1. Laundry washing liquids- as an alternative to washing powder.
  2. Liquids for the impregnation of clothing - maintaining constant technical parameters of clothing.
  3. Impregnation sprays - for direct use on the dry surface of clothing.
