How to Wash Your Heated Clothing

How to wash heated clothes

 

After using your heated apparel repeatedly for hiking, cycling, riding your motorcycle, climbing, skiing, skating, horseback riding, or just while going out to get some pizza with your friends, the truth is that your heated clothes won’t stay clean forever. There comes that time when your favorite heated jacket needs to “take a shower”.


But you’ve got your doubts. You may be afraid that its heating elements will stop working if you give your jacket a “bath”. And besides, you’ve been told that cable circuits normally don’t get along with water (your hair dryer’s warning label gives you a warm reminder every time you use it). 


So...

Can you wash a heated jacket? 


The great news is that there’s no need to be afraid! You can wash your ORORO heated jacket with peace of mind, as long as you follow the instructions below. This requires special care so please make sure to follow all the steps.

If it’s still chilly where you live, you're ready to wear your clean heated apparel. Stuck inside? Many people use their heated clothes at home to watch TV or simply hang around the house.

How to store your heated clothing?

If you’re going to store your heated jacket, hoodie, or vest, make sure to keep it in a place where there’s ventilation and that’s not very humid. You don’t want it to get moldy. And remember that you need to keep your battery where the temperature is 77°F  ± 2°F and also keep it away from moisture (we recommend relative humidity levels 60 ±15% RH). 

    So, that’s all!  Now you can invite your favorite heated jacket or vest for a “bath” when you feel it’s necessary. You don’t need to wash it every time you wear it, but deep inside you, you’ll always know when it’s time for taking your ORORO out on a date with the washing machine.
