HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR MUSTO CLOTHING

 

GENERAL CARE INFORMATION: WATERPROOF AND GORE-TEX® TROUSERS, JACKETS, DOWN OR FEATHER FILLED AND POLARTEC®.

      Your Musto garments are engineered with a variety of materials and fabrics to create the best combination of freedom of movement, breathability, wind proofing, waterproofing and warmth. Each type of garment will therefore have its own requirements. Musto recommend that you read the care labels inside your garments carefully as this will provide specific information for your product. Below is some general guidance on how to care for your Musto products.

 

CLEANING:
      • To ensure longevity and top performance, make sure you only wash your garments when they really need it.

      • Prior to cleaning, remove any detachable accessories, close all fasteners and wash with similar colours.

      • Wash your Musto garments using a non-biological product. Musto's favourite is Granger’s Performance Wash. Do not use, under any circumstances, biological detergents. Biological detergents contain enzymes that can damage the performance and effectiveness of your product. For example, washing a waterproof jacket with biological detergent may affect the breathability and waterproofness of its fabric.

      • Do not use fabric softener, as this can also affect the breathability and moisture management of your jacket and can damage the fibres and colour fastness. Make sure you check the agents present in your current detergent as many contain fabric softener.

      • Do not use bleaching agents. Check your current detergent as lots of them contain bleaching agents.

DRYING:
      • Please refer to the care label inside your garments, this will provide you with specific information on how to care for your product.

IRONING:
      • Do not iron directly on prints, embroidery, badges or reflectors.

RE-PROOFING:

Musto treat their waterproof garments, such as BR1, BR2, HPX, MPX and GORE-TEX® jackets, with a durable water repellent (DWR). This polymer prevents the garment outer from being saturated with water. Wear and tear, salt, dirt or repeated washing can wear off the DWR treatment. Your garment may even appear to be leaking because the waterlogged outer is reducing the jacket’s breathability creating condensation on the inside. When this happens or to prevent this from happening, you will need to re-treat your product.

Musto recommend you treat your garment only when the DWR performance begins to lower. It does not have to be after every single wash. You can test the DWR by sprinkling water on the jacket. If the water beads up and rolls off, the DWR does not need renewing. Reproofing will avoid you getting the uncomfortable wet out feeling that can rapidly put an end to your day out.

      • Musto recommends Granger’s Performance Repel or Clothing Wash and Repel to renew the DWR.

      • Please follow the instructions on the re-proofing product.

      • Because DWR can be activated with heat, if the care label in the garment allows, you could alternatively tumble dry your clean garment for 20 minutes on a low heat to reactivate the DWR treatment on the outer fabric.

      • Another option is to place a towel over your garment and iron it, without steam, on a low heat. But please check the garment care label first.

      • If it’s a down/feather filled garment please use their Down Wash.

STORAGE:
    • Store your garment once you are sure it is perfectly dry. It might be worth letting it dry naturally for one more day to ensure all moisture has left the garment, especially when storing your product at the end of the season.

    • Down jackets need to be stored in a dry, aeriated place with room to breathe.
