How to wash your ski clothing

At LR we know how much fun a week in the mountains can be – beautiful views, great snow, and of course the all-important apres-ski. And we know how important it is to look your best while you’re on the slopes, which is why you need to know how to care for your ski gear.

Ski clothing requires extra care because of the specialised materials used in its construction. Not washing it correctly can result in damage and the loss of the waterproof qualities which are so essential. Always check the care label carefully before cleaning.

If the items are washable, use a cold, delicate cycle with a non-detergent cleaner. Then run another cold cycle, adding a wash-in water repellent to restore the waterproof membrane. Do not use bleach or fabric softener. Rinse twice and tumble dry on a low cycle. Once dry, apply some more waterproofing spray and hang them ready for the next season!
