When to Clean Your Ski Wear

Skiing is one of the most popular sports during the winter season. It is one of the few sports where wearing an appropriate attire to play the sport is a must. However, after a few days of skiing, you maybe asking yourself, “When is a good time to clean your ski wear?” Here are a few signs to identify when you should clean your ski wear:

  • Stains – When you see any visible stains, a simple wipe won’t do. These stains may have occurred when you were eating and drinking while wearing your ski clothes. If this is the case, there may be many stains and crumbs that are trapped in the pores of your ski wear that you may not be aware of.
  • Dirt/soil – Dust and soil buildup can result in clogged pores which will prevent your ski wear from removing precipitation which results in sweat build up.
  • Waterproofing – If snow or ice or water comes through your ski wear, your ski wear is no longer functional and needs to be repaired.

Even if all the above hasn’t occurred, it’s a good practice to regularly clean your ski wear at least twice per season. Once before you use them for the first time and a second time when you’ll be storing them away for the next season.

If you’re thinking about cleaning your ski wear, contact or visit a professional dry cleaner. They can help professionally clean and preserve your ski wear so they can last for generations.
