Wash and care instructions

Make your hunting apparel last longer – see how below

There are just as many types of hunting clothes as there are types of hunting. Each type of hunting requires hunting apparel with specific properties. Some hunting clothes are specially designed to be as quiet as possible, while others are designed to keep out the rain or retain body heat.

In order to achieve these different properties, various materials and technologies are used. However, hunting apparel will retain its special properties longer if the clothing is correctly handled. Therefore, please always follow the washing instructions in your Deerhunter hunting apparel.

Protect the membrane

Protect the membrane

If your hunting apparel incorporates a membrane, it is important that you do not add fabric conditioner when washing the garment. The membrane ensures that you are kept dry when hunting, and that your skin can breathe. If you use fabric conditioner, it will clog the pores in the membrane, and significantly reduce the garment’s breathability. In order to maintain the permeability of the membrane, it is a good idea if the garment is completely dry before it is packed away, and that you do not store it in a very warm or humid environment.

Wash inside out

Wash inside out

Close zippers and buttons and turn the garment inside out before washing the garment. By closing zippers and buttons, they will be protected during washing, so you can be sure that they will function as intended afterwards. It is also better for the washing machine if zippers and buttons are closed to avoid wear and tear on the drum. In turning your clothes inside out, they will also be washed more gently, as the outer surface of the garment will not come into contact with the washing machine drum – nor with other clothes, buttons etc.

Skip a wash

Skip a wash

A damp cloth can often be a good substitute for a wash. On leatherwear and rainwear, it is easy to wipe off marks with a damp cloth, and the same applies to other garments. If an item of clothing has a mark, it can often be removed with a damp cloth instead of washing it in the machine. In doing so, you are protecting the environment and ensuring that your clothing is soon ready for your next hunt.

Wash blood on clothes

Wash blood on clothes

Perhaps you have been unlucky – or rather lucky – enough to get blood on your clothes? As a hunter, blood is all part of the experience, but to keep your clothes looking good for as long as possible, it is a good idea to remove any blood spots. It’s best – and much easier – to clean the blood off before it dries. Blood spots should be removed with ice-cold water. Let the water wash through the blood while rubbing it with a soft sponge. If the spot is obstinate, add a handful of salt to the water and rub the stain. The salt helps to dissolve the blood. Do not use hot water – it reacts with the blood so that the spot will be almost impossible to remove.
