We're well into the spring season and, if you haven't done so already, it's time to start thinking about packing away our winter gear. It’s important to remember the proper off-season storing techniques for your parkas, and the Due West team wants to ensure your jacket stays fresh and pristine during the warmer months. Follow the tips below to find out how to store your Canada Goose jacket in the upcoming months.
1. Store It
Your parka should be stored in a cool, dry place; either hanging or laying down flat. Feel free to add a fabric sheet to the pockets to ensure freshness.
2. Dry Clean It
Did your parka get a lot of traction this past winter? If your parka needs cleaning, take it to a reputable dry cleaner who has experience working with fur trims. If the fur is removable, then go ahead and remove it prior to dropping it off for cleaning. When your coat is returned to you, follow tip #1 above.
For advice on where to send your parka to be cleaned in Toronto, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for our recommendation.
3. Spot Clean It
We get it, accidents happen. Especially when you’re enjoying a nice cup of hot chocolate after a long day on the slopes. But never fear! Spot wash stains with a bleach-free detergent and a clean, non-coloured cloth. Once that is finished, follow tip #1 (and/or #2) and your parka will be as good as new! (Be sure to test the bleach-free detergent on a small patch of your jacket first, just to be safe!)
4. Protect It
Your fur ruff is there for a reason - to protect your face from the elements and harsh weather conditions. Take care of your ruff, and it will take care of you. If you are following tip #2 and you can remove your fur ruff, remove it. If it is not removable ask your dry cleaner to not treat it during the cleaning process.
5. Maintenance Check
If your parka requires some maintenance, check out the Canada Goose warranty policy. Now would be the best time to have it serviced, as you won’t be needing it in the warmer months.
Following tips one thorough five will have your Canada Goose parka in tip-top shape for the next season. And don’t worry, only 219 more days until next winter :) For more information, check out this link.
