How to clean textile jacket...

How do you guys clean your textile jackets?

It says no washer or dry cleaning...but some people have told me the gentle cycle might be better than hand scrubbing...it's just some caked in bugs.

Also, can I scotch gaurd it so if I get something on it, ya know, it'll come out.

Thanks!

hang it on a hanger, get a bowl of warm water and use a dish brush to lightly remove bugs etc. Its a slow process but works... Persoanlly, I have miele high tech washing machine and use the silk wash then hang it.

I have a joe rocket textile jacket and have put it in the wash more than once and it didnt hurt it any. So the washer should be fine, just hang it up to dry.

I hate to dig up an ancient thread but thought you guys might be able to help me out. I have a pretty much new icon textile jacket that got some grease splats on it from the chain on my buddies bike. He goes a lil crazy with the chain lube. Well just wondering if any of you guys have been successful removing these types of stains..

For grease you'll need something that is specifically for treating that... maybe something with OxiClean or one of those stain treatment pens.

Yeah I thought that too, until I read the care label and it said not to use any oxygenated detergent cause it will ruin the jacket. I'm leaning towards just using dish detergent and seeing what happens. Was hoping someone on here had a miracle fix or something before i give that a try.

I use a 5 gallon bucket and woolite. Works like a charm. Air dried in the summer....smells fresh and looks new every year.
