/ Mouldy Down Jacket
Mine has got mould on the pertex outer from a mould infestation in the house and I am worried it may have got into the down. Has anyone had this happen and had the jacket cleaned/cleaned themselves successfully?
I would try washing it. google what to do but basically 30 degree delicates wash with pure soap then tumble dry at launderete low to med setting with 2 tennis balls in the machine to break up the clumps of down and reloft :)
My down jacket survived a front loader fine. Washing it wasn't a big deal, neither was throwing it in the dryer after wards.
Have a top loader now that I'm not game to try it in (partly because i think its much more likely to tear and then I suspect both the jacket and the washing machine will be unusable afterwards.)
Any joy? Did the mould come out?
