Clean and Care for Flight suit

Post by DAshley84 » Mon Sep 25, 2017 9:08 pm

Was just wondering the preferred method for cleaning flight suits? I have a Wampa Wear suit with vinyl cogs.

Most would recommend turning the flight suit inside out and washing in cold water (gentle cycle), then hang dry. Seems to work OK for me.

It doesn't even need to be cold water. I have a wampa wear, moncal and a cosplaysky suit and have washed them over 50 times on a regular hot water cycle and they are just fine. I wouldn't worry about it. Also you really only need to turn it inside out if you have vinyl cogs on it to keep them from being peeled off in the wash over time.

This is my method, as well.
