Putting new life into old bag,
This review is from: Nikwax Down Wash/Down Proof Twin Pack (Sports)
I have a Mountain Equipment down bag which is nearly 30 year old and has not seen much use in recent years. It was suffering the consequences of years in the back of an airing cupboard but was not kept in a stuff sac. To see if it was worth keeping I tried out the NikWax Down wash and proof twinpack using an ordinary domestic washing machine and a tumbler drier on low heat. I also took the much quoted advice of adding two tennis balls to the tumbler drier which is supposed to deal with any clumping of the feathers. To my amazement and delight the bag came out looking quite clean and after a few hours tumble drying fully restored with no signs of lumping. Well worth doing!
