We use high-quality DWR treated fabrics that will shed most moisture and dust with a simple shake of the quilt. For more stubborn dust, dirt and grime you might pick up in the woods a spray bottle of water and wiping with a paper towel will take off anything on the surface of your Top and Under Quilts.
From time to time a more thorough washing might be needed and for that, we recommend Nikwax Tech Wash. Follow the instructions on the bottle and be sure to thoroughly dry your quilts. And after any trip be certain to give your quilts a day or two to air out and completely dry before being stored long term.
Speaking of long-term storage, be certain to allow your quilts to loft for storing them any longer than a few travel days. All insulation types can be damaged by long-term compression. Just as a spring held under hard compression will not bounce back the same your insulation will loft better if stored in a manner that does not compress the fibers.
