Taking care of your Sasta garmentsWhen properly cared for, Sasta products retain their special properties and stay in good condition for a long time. Attend to your clothing regularly and follow the washing instructions carefully in order to ensure that the materials retain their special characteristics and your clothes can withstand hard use and demanding conditions year after year.
ClothingSasta clothing is easy to care for and can be wet-cleaned (machine-wash at 30 °C or 40 °C). Follow the washing instructions for each garment carefully.
The products should be washed with a mild detergent, inside out and separately from other washing. Drum-drying and fast spinning are not recommended, as they could damage the materials. After washing, turn the products right-side out, smooth them, and hang them to dry on a hanger or a clothesline.
Do not use fabric-softener when washing Gore-Tex®, Windstopper®, Polartec®, or Sasta EXP products, as it blocks the microscopic pores in the membrane or fabric and decreases the elasticity of the materials. Do not use bleach, either.
Stains can be removed with a stain-remover. We recommend testing the stain-remover on the inside of the product first, to make sure it can’t damage the surface material. After removing the stain, wash the garment per its washing instructions.
Most Sasta surface fabrics have been impregnated to make them repel dirt and water. If the effect has deteriorated or been lost in use and during washes, the garment can be re-impregnated. Impregnants are sold in sports and camping stores, where you can also ask for advice on choosing the right impregnant.
Do not sew badges or similar on your Gore-Tex® or Sasta EXP clothing. The stitches will pierce the waterproof membrane.
