How to Care for Your GORE-TEX

If you take care of your gear, it will take care of you - even with serious mileage under the hood.
By following these care procedures, you’ll be confident when that heavy weather front blows over the horizon.

*Please Note: Before washing your garment, zip the front, pits and pockets and be sure to fasten all flaps and straps.*

Wash Icon

WASH

Machine wash on a warm permanent press cycle (105°F) with a small amount of liquid detergent. Rinse twice, and minimize spinning to reduce creasing. Don’t use powder detergents, fabric softeners, stain removers, or bleach. Don’t wash with heavily soiled clothing.

Dry Icon
DRY

You can either line dry or tumble dry it on a warm, gentle cycle. Once it’s dry, tumble dry the garment for 20 minutes to reactivate the durable water repellent (DWR) treatment on the outer fabric. You can do this anytime you notice the water repellency needs a boost.

NOTE: Do not tumble dry GORE-TEX SHAKEDRY™ gear.

DRY CLEAN

We recommend that you wash your gear at home. But if dry cleaning is necessary, request that the cleaner use clear distilled hydrocarbon solvent for rinsing, and then spray DWR on the garment’s outer fabric before drying.

NOTE: Do not dry clean GORE-TEX SHAKEDRY™ gear.

Water Repellent Finish
WATER REPELLENT FINISH

When water no longer beads up on your garment’s outer fabric, you can restore its DWR by using a topical spray or a wash-in DWR treatment. These treatments help restore the DWR on the outer shell fabric of the garment so that it remains water and stain repellent. We recommend that you use a pump-action spray rather than aerosol cans to reduce environmental impact.

IRONING

If you can’t tumble dry to reactivate the DWR, iron the dried garment on a gentle setting (warm, no steam) by placing a towel or cloth between the garment and the iron.

NO BLEACH

Chlorine-based bleaches could damage your product. Don’t use them anywhere on it.
