If it is polyester wadding:
The process is as follows:
- place the sleeping bag in the washing machine.
- Add 2 or 3 tennis balls (new balls or balls that have been washed in bleach, if possible):they enable better beating of the sleeping bag and better washing, without damaging it.
- Start a 30° C cycle, without spinning.
- Then air dry the sleeping bag.
If it is down:
The golden rule is to wash the sleeping bag as little as possible.The safest option is to have the sleeping bag professionally cleaned at a dry cleaner.It is particularly important to check that it is completely dry, particularly at the seams.
For easier maintenance and to avoid dirtying inside the sleeping bag, you can use a cotton or silk sleeping bag liner..
Long live your camping companion!
