How do you clean your ski pant

Cleaning your ski clothes allows you to preserve their comfort and above all their technical qualities, provided you follow a few instructions so as not to damage them.

Do not use fabric softener, this deteriorates waterproof membranes.


1/ Wash your ski trousers

The ski trousers are made of technical smart textiles with various properties: breathability, water-repellency, warmth... Their compositions require special attention when washing:


2/ Drying your ski trousers

This is a very important step not to be overlooked! If the drying is not done correctly, your clothes can rot and smell badly

Once washed, turn your jacket and pants back to front and put them back in place opening all the zips. Dry flat in a dry and ventilated place, avoiding proximity to heat sources such as a radiator or a fireplace. This can take several days before your clothes are completely dry, be patient!


Tumble dryer for down jackets: ideal for down jackets, a tumble dryer will dry the down well and keep it airy and lofty. Put your down jacket with two clean tennis balls into the drum of your dryer and program a gentle and delicate cycle. To ensure thorough drying, repeat the operation several times by shaking your puffer jacket between each cycle to help the down to find its volume.

Your ski gloves also require special attention when washing.
Your gloves can be machine washed as long as you do not exceed a washing programme of 30°.
We also advise against putting your gloves in a dryer because if they contain down, there is a risk of "feather balls" forming.
