Washing a ski jacket
Never washed mine before and kinda wanna get that white back to being white. It's an Orage Xavier Pro and I dont want the colors to run. Should I just wash it in cold water and let it air dry so it doesnt shrink?
buummp i also want know this
go to your local shop and talk to someone about nikwax and other washing machine waterproofing products. some companies test their jackets to be able to withstand a number of washing machine cycles, but the majority if you throw them in there will completely fuck up the waterproofing and render your jacket pretty useless.

I have an old oakley jacket that I wash often and it has care instructions on a tag on the inside. If you could just clean it with a wash cloth that might be a safer way to go.
you need to add a special detergent that doesnt remove the waterproofing. i havent tried it on a ski jacket but it works great on ski pants.

This for sure.
Ive used nikwax on all my jackets and never had a problem.
if you don't have nikwax i believe you want to atleast use a powdered detergent rather than liquid. liquid clogs the fuck out of the pores in the material. and rinse it twice and hang dry it

You definitely do not want to put it in the dryer. I'd say just hand wash your jacket. You'd be surprised what some elbow grease can do.
