Sleeping Bags and Comforter care tips
Sleeping bags are basically comforters with zippers. We wash sleeping bags year round, whether from a camping trip to the woods or the kids sleepover on the floor. Unzip them ( find all of the socks left in the bottom ) , load them into the washers like a comforter, then fluff and fold. If it is gortex or down, be sure to follow the directions (we know, that is a dirty word!! ) usually cold water wash and tumble dry low. For those two kinds, be sure and leave yourself plenty of drying time. When you take them home, leave them out overnight or longer and let them breathe before you wind them back up or stuff them back in the bag. Sometimes, just like comforters, they feel dry when they come out of the dryer, but after they cool down, they are still damp. And you don’t want them to mold and then start the process washing all over again!! Be patient, dry a little longer than you think and you will be fine!
