How To Care For Your Pyrenex Women’s Jackets
To maintain your Pyrenex jacket for years to come, you need to follow a few guidelines. The most important aspect is not to wash it too regularly if it is only worn casually and not used in activity. Once per year is sufficient. Also, don’t wash the entire jacket if you suffer a spill, carefully remove it with soap and water and dry thoroughly and naturally.
Whilst the manufacturer states machine wash at 30°c is possible, the best option is to take no risk and dry clean only. If your jacket does get wet, you should never dry a down jacket on a radiator as this will compress the delicate feathers and down. You may dry your jacket naturally on a line or rack, but it is important to shake your jacket regularly to separate all the feathers and to prevent clumping. It is essential to never store your jacket wet.
