How To Wash Your Sleeping Bag
When you have used your sleeping bag many times, you may feel the need to wash it. Unfortunately, washing sleeping bags can affect the warmth and the efficiency of the sleeping bag. For that reason, it is recommended not to wash your sleeping bag too frequently.
Cleaning a synthetic sleeping bag should be done by hand or in the bathtub. However, if you feel you have no other choice, you can put them in the washing machine on a low spin cycle. Synthetic sleeping bags should never be put in the dryer though, as the heat from the dryer can have a negative impact on the synthetic fibres of your sleeping bag.
Down or feather sleeping bags are the hardest type to clean. These sleeping bags provide a tremendous amount of comfort and warmth, and should you wish to clean them, you will require special cleaning products to get it pristine. That being said, the comfort and warmth of a down or feather sleeping bag is often worth the effort and the investment!
