Today, a jacket with a down filling is the most popular outerwear in the winter season. Down jackets are present in the collections of famous designers. The fame and universal recognition of down jackets is due to the fact that, despite their lightness, they have excellent heat-preserving properties.
Dry the down jacket strictly in a horizontal position. If you hang the down jacket vertically, the filler will slide down and get lost in a lump. It is best if, for drying, you lay the down jacket on a horizontal plane on top of a natural fiber fabric, which will absorb excess moisture. When the fabric is moistened, it should be replaced with a dry one.
Drying down jackets on the balcony is acceptable. The down jacket must be laid out on top of a special mesh dryer, thereby ensuring air circulation. However, direct sunlight should be avoided.
The main condition for the successful drying of a down jacket can be called periodic shaking of the product in different directions. You need to shake as if you were beating a pillow. Also, during drying, the down jacket should be turned over and shaken as often as possible, while straightening the fluff inside the product with your hands.
Another way you can dry a down jacket is to insert a hair dryer into the pocket of the jacket, turning on a not too hot mode, air dry and at the same time straighten the filler.
