HOW TO WASH
To get your garments ready to wash, ensure all pockets are empty, close all zips and make sure any substantial dirt has been wiped off. Wash GORE-TEX® garments on their own cycle, making sure to use a regular liquid detergent free of fabric softeners or extra oils (Grangers is great - Tide will work in a pinch). Avoid using powder detergents and never use bleach or a fabric softener. Set the machine to warm and a wrinkle free/permanent press cycle if available.
When the machine has done its job, hang your GORE-TEX® pieces to dry until they’re no longer dripping then pop them in the tumble dryer on a warm setting until completely dry. The key here is heat - the tumble dryer helps to reactivate the garment’s DWR treatment and will keep it beading. This step can be repeated anytime you notice the water repellency needs a boost.
