How to Take Care of Your Sleeping Bag Part 2

In our last email, we discussed sleeping bag care when it comes to washing and drying. In today's newsletter, we want to mention some other steps you can take to keep your sleeping bag at maximum performance.

We will continue from where we left off, so the next step should be done after you dry your sleeping bag.

3. DEODORIZE

When washing just isn’t enough, use an odor eliminator. It will remove stinky, persistent smells from all types of gear.

You can check out Revivex Odor Eliminator, which uses a powerful and natural formula that utilizes water-activated microbes to remove funky smells.

Rather than hide or mask bad odors, it safely removes the bacteria causing the odor. The best part - it can also treat odors in tents, wetsuits, dog beds, and activewear.

Use the solution within 72 hours of adding water for best results.

  1. Fill a tub with just enough cool water to submerge the sleeping bag.
  2. Add 2 fl oz of Odor Eliminator to 20 gallons of water. Stir to mix.
  3. Unzip the sleeping bag and submerge in solution saturating inside and out.
  4. Soak for 5 minutes then remove. Do not rinse.
  5. Let the bag sit for a couple of hours, then follow the drying instructions above.

4. WATERPROOF

It is important to protect your sleeping bag from getting wet, but sometimes it can be quite difficult.

Therefore, the best solution is to spray the exterior of your sleeping bag with a durable water repellent, which will protect the insulation from getting wet.

One of the best options is the Revivex Durable Water Repellent.

  1. Before drying, remove a clean sleeping bag from the wash and make sure it is no longer turned inside-out.
  2. Treat the exterior of the bag with Revivex Durable Water Repellent. Shake can well. Spray 5-10 inches from the garment in a well-ventilated area. Provide an even spray to the entire bag.
  3. Afterward, follow the drying instructions above.

5. STORAGE

The most important note for this step is to make sure you don't compress your sleeping bag too much for extended periods of time because it can reduce the bag's loft or insulation.

The best practice would be to loosely store your sleeping bag in a large cotton or mesh sack.

If you do not have it, then check out some of our products below. We are sure you will find the perfect one!
