Nikwax Down Wash

rated 4 of 5 stars This is an effective product for cleaning and restoring loft to down garments and sleeping bags/quilts. It works for both hand and machine washing. The price for a bottle is steep, but I have found it to be pretty concentrated, with good results using less product than is prescribed. Background: Nikwax Down Wash Direct is a specialty detergent for washing high-quality down products like jackets (puffies) and sleeping bags/quilts. Anyone who is familiar with high fill-power down products knows how… Full review

Nikwax Down Wash

rated 3 of 5 stars It works to clean down bags and garments safely, but is more costly than Gear Aid Revivex. Tried it and find it's effective to clean, but at three to four times the cost of Gear Aid ReviveX Pro Cleaner. Full review

ReviveX Down Cleaner

rated 5 of 5 stars Great product for cleaning your down sleeping bag and other down gear and is a great value in terms of the amount of product you get for the cost. I spent quite a bit of time researching on the web for cleaners to use to clean my down sleeping bag that had seen one too many nights of me crawling in all dirty, sweaty, and grimy. I selected this product based on the reviews and also because it represented the best value with respect to the amount of product you received for the money spent. I bought… Full review

Granger's Extreme Cleaner Spray-on

rated 3 of 5 stars Granger's Extreme Cleaner Spray-on is an easy-to-apply cleaner for down jackets, sleeping bags, and other gear that cannot/should not go into a washing machine. While it will knock off the dirt and grime, users should not expect their down products to look as good as new. I bought it in the United States, but the product is based in the United Kingdom and hard to find. Search Amazon. Let me start by saying, I did not go looking to buy this product. I went into an “outdoor gear store” to buy… Full review

Nikwax Down Wash

rated 5 of 5 stars Have a down filled jacket or sleeping bag? A bit dirty or has it lost it loft? Look no further! If you want to take care and make your expensive gear stand the test of time, you can't do without this! I did the ultimate "no no." I washed my down jacket like it was a regular piece of gear. I know, I know! I looked at the directions on the jacket and I followed it. After it came of the wash (I used very little least I had that going for me) and I dried it (once on regular) it came out… Full review

Nikwax Down Wash

rated 5 of 5 stars This product really works! Took a 20+ year old down sleeping bag that was soiled, stinky and flat to looking like new with all the loft restored. It took 2 washings in a front loader, but this one was really bad! Nikwax Down Wash is fragrance free and still managed to get rid of the odor and not mask it. Full review
