Barbour quilted coats are available in many styles and colors and include a waterproof dressing to make them a long-lasting product. The waterproof exterior repels liquids so they don’t stain your coat and keeps the sun from drying and bleaching out the color. Cleaning your coat properly protects the material so you can apply additional dressing and keep wearing your coat for many years to come.
Things You’ll Need
- Cold water
- Barbour thornproof dressing
- Blow dryer
- Wet a sponge with cold water, and wring it out so it remains damp.
- Wipe the inside and outside of a Barbour quilted coat gently to remove any dirt or debris from the coat.
To remove heavy debris or dirt, soak the coat first in a bathtub of cold water, and then sponge off the interior and exterior.
- Hang your coat on a clothesline outside and let it dry naturally.
- Open and place a tin of Barbour thornproof dressing in a pot on the stove. Add water to below to top of the tin, and heat the water on medium high until the dressing softens. Remove the tin from the pot with tongs and place it on a plate.
- Dip a sponge into the dressing and rub it on the exterior of your coat. Work the dressing into the fabric, making sure to cover seams and creases.
- Plug a blow dryer into an electrical receptacle, and turn it on high heat. Dry the coat thoroughly with the blow dryer on all exterior surfaces to set the dressing.
- Hang your coat on a clothes hanger overnight in a warm area.
