Prior to washing, apply cleaner directly to heavily soiled areas. Close all zippers and Velcro® tabs.
Add ReviveX Pro Cleaner™ to washer. Wash garments using the delicate cycle and warm water. Whenever possible use a front loading, instead of a top loading washing machine.
Alternate Step 2:
If desired, hand wash garments in a sink or tub. Fill sink with just enough water to cover the garments and add cleaner. Gently knead all areas to remove dirt and stains. Rinse thoroughly until water runs clear.
Now is a good time to apply a fresh water repellent treatment. Place wet garment on a hanger. Spray ReviveX Spray-On Water Repellent or ReviveX Spray-On Water Repellent for Soft Shells on the garment exterior.
Dry using heat setting recommended by garment care label (medium heat if possible). To restore rainwear and softshells to their original water repellency, dry garments for at least 60 minutes.
