Sometimes it can happen that a stain appears or the winter coat has a bad odor. We have collected the tips for you on how to properly maintain your winter coat . Read the tips below and turn your ELVINE winter coat into a jacket that will last for years.

1. Clean jacket according to instructions

Check the jacket label for specific washing instructions. These can be different per jacket. Some jackets can be washed in the washing machine, while other winter jackets require a different cleaning method. So follow the washing instructions as indicated for your winter coat!

2. Treat stains in the jacket immediately

Treat stains as quickly as possible to prevent them from setting in the fabric of the winter coat. What helps to remove the stain from your winter coat is the use of ox gall soap. Wet the stain with some water and dab the ox gall soap on it. Gently scrub the stain with a damp cloth or washcloth; after it has dried, the stain will hardly be visible anymore. Ox gall soap is perfect for use on stains caused by fat, fruit, egg, wine or milk. In addition, ox gall soap is a natural product that is not 100% natural and prevents strange chemical stains.

3. Brush regularly

Use a soft brush or lint roller to remove dust, lint and other debris from the winter coat. You can do this once in a while to keep the fabric fresh and give your winter coat the same fresh look as you bought it.

4. Storage

Hang your winter coat in a suitable place. This can be neatly placed in the cupboard, on the coat rack or in the utility room. It is best to hang the jacket on a wide hanger. This ensures that the winter coat retains its beautiful shape. Avoid storing your winter coat folded or in plastic bags. This retains moisture and is unfavorable for the winter coat . In addition, the filling of the jacket will shift and become out of shape. Because it is of course a shame for the beautiful winter coat that you want to wear again next year.

Can you put a winter coat in the washing machine?

This question is often asked by people who want to properly maintain their winter coat. Whether a winter coat is suitable for the washing machine depends on a number of things. Our advice is not to put your winter coat in the washing machine , but instead hang it outside or spray it with a refreshing spray. This way the worst odors will certainly disappear.

Why you shouldn't put a winter coat in the washing machine.

Because ELVINE jackets are made of water-repellent material and you prefer to retain this function of the jacket, we recommend not putting the jacket in the washing machine. There is a good chance that the winter coat will lose its water-repellent function. If your jacket has a small stain or is a bit dirty, it is best to first try to solve this as best as possible by hand. This way you prevent damage in the washing machine and the winter coat retains its original model and color. You can also choose to wash the jacket by hand or take it to the dry cleaner. The dry cleaner always knows what to do with a stain that is difficult to remove.
