first of all read the instructions on the tags. But it usualy is hang dry (drying takes away the repelent coating that makes water bead up) and wash with a powdered detergent instead of a liquid one but read up.
for stains/railstains/dirt get some spray and wash and rub it opn the stain then put it in the wash with cold water and hang to dry and voile, your clean. if you weant more waterproofing buy some nikwax that goes in the wash too

I bought jacket/pants from people on NS, and I was planning on just giving them a light wash before the season started. Do you suggest I do this or no? I might order some tekwash and just restore the waterproofing. Suggestions? Also, the jacket smells like moth balls (the kid must have had them in his house or something) so I really need to get that out haha.
