/ Washing a climbing harness?
Basicly as the topic title says. My Harness is looking a little worse for wear after a number of very muddy muti-pitch epics in North Wales
Any suggestions or advice on if/how to wash my harness most welcome
Just done a few Google searches, and the common advice is
Hand wash in warm water with a mild soap (never use bleach), and air dry away from direct sunlight.
Look in the care instructions for your harness, for example, look at the "care" tab for this.
I have never understood the obsession with keeping climbing kit out of sunlight at all costs when drying it.
I don't see how drying kit for half a day occasionally in the sun can do any damage to it when the kit is regularly used all day out in the sun...
Techwash is perfectly safe for washing ropes so will be fine for harnesses.
