So, your Camp Blanket is starting to look a bit rough around the edges, huh? Maybe it's seen a few too many starlit nights or cozy campfire gatherings. No judgment here – that’s what they’re made for! It’s woven with the stories of your adventures, and we're here to ensure it continues to be a part of many more.
Just like your trusty sleeping bag, your camp blanket needs a little love to stay fresh and functional. Here’s the lowdown on how to care for it.
General Care Tips:
- Fresh Air is Your Friend: Just like airing out your sleeping bag, letting your blanket breathe after use can work wonders. Unfold it and give it some sun and air time – at least a couple of hours.
- Smart Storage: Store your blanket in a breathable bag or hang it up in the closet. Make sure it’s completely dry before you tuck it away to avoid any musty surprises.
Washing Your TETON Sports Camp Blanket:
- Gentle is Key: The Highline and Acadia camp blankets are machine washable. We recommend washing them on a gentle cycle, with cold water and a mild detergent.
- Spot Cleaning: For fewer washes and better water repellency retention, spot clean with a damp cloth and a mild soap.
- Drying Do’s: Air drying is ideal and what we recommend. If machine drying, use the lowest heat setting with tennis balls to fluff.
Maintaining Your Water Repellency:
- Natural Wear: Like all good things, the waterproofing on your blanket will fade over time. Washing it speeds up this process, so keep those machine washes to a minimum.
- Reproofing Recommended: Over time, you may need to reapply a waterproof treatment yourself. We recommend Nikwax TX direct wash or spray.
- Warranty Wisdom: Remember, natural wear of water repellency or damage due to machine drying is not covered under our lifetime warranty, but we do cover any manufacturing defects for as long as you own the product.
