Waterproof garments such as ski jackets are made from fabrics that should not be washed using ordinary detergents. The chemicals in standard detergents can break down the composition of the garment's fibres and strip the fabric of its waterproof coating. However, as Oxwash process this type of clothing on a 'wet clean' cycle, using specialist chemistry, we don't strip back the waterproof coating. Thus, ski jackets and other types of waterproof clothing are safe for us to process. If you have any further questions, we encourage you to get in touch with us.
