If you need to wash your Softshell jacket with Ecorepel® coating, it can easily be done in the washing machine at 30 ℃ on gentle cycle. Even after many washes, the coating will be intact.
After washing, the coating is “reactivated” by tumble drying on medium heat. (max 65 ℃). There is therefore no need to spray the jacket with impregnating spray.
We are constantly working consciously towards a more sustainable production. As part of that process, we have for the last many seasons integrated Ecorepel® coating on our entire softshell collection – and therefore no longer use fluorocarbon in production.
Ecorepel® is a water and dirt-repellent coating, which both strengthens the high quality of the clothes and means that there is no need for them to be washed very often.
We therefore recommend that you consider whether the entire jacket needs to be washed, or whether it is enough that you wash certain areas with a damp cloth. It saves water and is good for the environment.
