Protective gear that includes GORE-TEX CROSSTECH® fabric requires special care; however, cleaning the fabric itself does not require any special equipment or solutions. For best results, simply follow the manufacturer's instructions for cleaning the gear.
GORE-TEX CROSSTECH® Fabric Care
Machine wash warm, rinse thoroughly, and tumble dry on warm setting.
Use delicate care settings.
Use a low-sudsing powdered detergent.
Do no use chlorinated bleach or fabric softeners, which may affect the textile strength and color.
Avoid puncturing the fabric because this will compromise the protective barrier.
Do not wring gloves. To remove excess water, always squeeze from the fingertips to the cuffs.
Do not use chlorine bleach.
Avoid puncturing the GORE-TEX CROSSTECH® glove inserts because this will compromise the protective barrier.
