Learning how to wash snow pants can be a tedious chore for some people. Some people even make it a weekly activity just so they can beat the cheap snow pants makers at their own game. Well, let me tell you that it really is not that hard. Here are some tips that you can follow on how to wash snow pants to keep them looking nice.
First, pay attention to any stains on the snow pants.
If you find the stains on your pants, you first must try to identify the type of stain. For example, there are vegetable stains that resemble small pebbles and mud patches and so on. Next, apply the stain remover with a cloth. You should follow the instructions on the container. In case of minor stains that do not require any further treatment, you may just wipe them off. But for more severe stains, you need to use a hot water extraction (steam cleaner). This process needs strong detergents and frequent wiping.
After treating the stains, it is time to put your snow pants in the washing machine.
Before putting your pants into the washing machine, make sure you empty the pockets and close all the zippers. It is important to wash together snow pants that are made of a similar fabric. The washing machine should be set to cold water, and you want to use a gentle cycle. After the rinsing, if you notice that the clothes are still soapy, you can choose to put the pants again to a rinsing cycle just to make sure they are well rinsed.
When looking for suitable cleaning agents, it is always advisable to buy those that do not contain bleach. Bleach is known to cause permanent damages to your snow pants’ material. Some of the recommended cleaning agents include liquid fabric softener, cold water and soap. Always remember that prevention is always better than cure.
Dry your snow pants in the proper way.
Once you have finished washing your pants, be sure to dry them on a hanger made of an absorbent material. This will help to prevent them from retaining water and mildew. If you use a regular hanger, be certain to flip the pants over before putting them inside of the washing machine. If you do not, your pants could fall apart or tear. It is much better to purchase a pre-washer hanger to prevent such problems. For cotton pants, you will want to make sure that you dry them in the sun before hanging them to allow the natural fibers to air dry. This will help ensure that your pants will last you for many seasons.
One of the most common questions about how to wash snow pants is about how often you should wash them. The actual answer depends upon the materials that the pants are made from. If you choose a fabric that can dry quickly, such as nylon, you will not need to wash them as often as someone who chooses a material that does not dry quickly, such as cotton. You may also want to check out the washing instructions for the fabric that you purchase.
Learning how to wash snow pants may seem challenging at the beginning, but it isn’t that hard. Following the tips in this article you can have nice results!
