How To Care For Your The North Face Jackets
When it comes to caring for your The North Face jacket, it is worth noting that different cleaning methods should be used depending on the type of material your item is made out of. We recommend always following the care instructions on the jacket’s label.
GORE-TEX® and DryVent® jackets can be put in the washing machine in cold water. Avoid using powder detergents, fabric softener, stain removers or chlorine bleach, and do not dry clean your jacket. Washing your GORE-TEX® jacket regularly will help maintain the DWR coating on the outside of the fabric.
Although delicate down-filled jackets can be cleaned in the washing machine, we would recommend getting it professionally cleaned by a service that specializes in cleaning down.
