A well cared for garment will last and last which is why we offer this advice to help make your Keela garment go on pushing the boundaries time after time. The most sustainable product is the product you already own.
Routine care and maintenance on your part will ensure the highest performance from your Keela garment and ensure a longer lifespan.
Dirt accumulating on the outer surface of a waterproof garment attracts water and reduces the performance of breathable pores in the fabric.
This in effect will rapidly reduce the breathability of the garment down to almost nothing. You should brush off any surface dirt regularly and keep oil and grease away from your garment; if after this your garments breathability is still affected you will need to wash it.
Please note that you should only wash your garment when it is required and breathability is impaired; frequent washing will wear a garment much faster than normal.
We recommend washing at 30°C or lower rather than 40°C to do your bit to limit the impact on our resources – See iprefer30 for more details.
