Is there anything better than a puffy vest? They are the perfect marriage of warmth and style that keeps you warm without getting too hot. This is a huge asset, especially for those of us who must do our best to guess what our winter weather will bring for the day.
Taking proper care of your puffy vest is imperative to making sure it will last forever — or at least until it is a complete fashion faux pas to wear it.
How to Take Care of Your Puffy Vest:
1. Use Gentle Detergent
A gentle detergent ensures that the down inside won’t be broken down prematurely.
2. Wash it Twice
Wash it once with the gentle detergent and then wash again with nothing in the water. This is basically a rinse, on steroids.
3. Dry on Low Heat
Don’t over heat the vest! Drying it on low heat will take more time, but it will be worth it.
4. Use Tennis Balls
Throwing a couple of tennis balls in the dryer with the vest will keep the down from bunching up. It will also reduce drying time.
