Even water repellent down needs looking after now and again. Wash and Repel Down 2 in 1 restores loft and tops up the durable water repellent treatment (DWR) to keep your down jackets and sleeping bags performing at their best.
Down loses its loft over time as skin oils and other contaminants make their way into the baffles. Unlike normal detergents, this powerful bluesign® approved formula cleans down items without leaving any residue that would reduce loft of water repellency. And it simultaneously tops up the existing DWR without using another wash cycle, saving on water and energy.
For best results, tumble dry on low afterwards with Grangers Wash Balls or a few tennis balls cut in half.
How It Is Made
Bluesign® is an independent standard for textiles production. It uses the world's strictest environmental requirements to ensure that harmful chemicals are kept out of every stage of manufacturing.
Grangers Clothing Repel uses a completely PFC-free formula to restore your clothing's durable water repellent treatment (DWR). PFCs are potentially harmful and have been found to build up in the environment.
Clothing Repel comes in a bottle made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic, including ocean waste plastics.

Reducing our carbon footprint
We are carbon neutral under PAS2060 and offset our Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 operations and transport emissions. We recognise that offsetting is not part of the solution but a point to pass through on a journey to Net Zero. Carbon Neutral is just a step in that journey.
We have joined the Science Based Targets Initiative which sets independent targets for us to achieve to do our bit to limit global warming to 1.5°C. Our targets are to halve our Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2025 based on 2018 base year and reduce our total carbon intesnity by 15% every year to achieve genuine net zero by 2050.
