There’s only so many adventures your sleeping bag can handle before it needs to be refreshed. When it’s time to give it a clean, make sure you use Down Wash from Nikwax.
Conventional detergents can have a detrimental effect on down, whereas this wash is designed to clean and restore the water repellency of down while maintaining the fill and insulation. It will also restore breathability which helps to keep the down performing well in damp or cold conditions. This product is water-based, non-hazardous, biodegradable and environmentally friendly as well for good measure.
Over time dirt and oil build up which will reduce the insulation properties of down, to ensure that you maintain it properly by cleaning it with Down Wash from Nikwax.

Can I wash my down jacket?1 answer
Will this remove odours and not clump the down?

You can use Nikwax Down Wash to wash your down jacket. The down wash will clean the down without stripping it of its natural oils. We've got a handy blog article about washing down sleeping bags that will help with a jacket too. Essentially the down will be clumped when it comes out of the washing machine or laundry tub so there are a few options for drying and de-clumping the down.

How many sleeping bags will 1 bottle wash?1 answer
I have 5 bags to wash. How many bottles will I need?

Nikwax indicates that you should use 100ml per 15L of water for handwashing, or 100ml per load in a front loader (with two clothing items, Nikwax don't recommend washing sleeping bags in a washing machine). We know that lots of manufacturers specify you can wash your down bag in a front loading washing machine, so just make sure you run the machine through a rinse cycle to ensure there is no residual detergent in the machine. I have used 150ml to wash my bag in a front loading washing machine. So to be safe I would order three bottles of Down Wash, as one bottle should do two sleeping bags.
