Washing and maintenance of Dakine backpacks 

With the right care you will enjoy all our Dakine backpacks for a long time. They are made of high quality materials, and if you notice a few hints, Dakine packs are easy to clean. A careful care guarantees you the optimal function and extends the life of your backpack.That not only pleases you but also the environment!

To keep your Dakine backpack with you for a long time, please note some important hints:

 

WASHING

!The most important in advance!
No matter how strong the pollution should be and whether it is a bicycle, hiking or ski / snowboard backpack, the backpack must not be washed in the washing machine. Neither at low or cold temperatures, not with mild detergent or without spin. If you are lucky, only the coating or parts of the backpack will break if you are unlucky, then the whole washing machine.

If the Dakine backpack has become very dirty during mountainbiking, the dirt is usually already dried when you are at home.

  • Carefully brush the dried earth off the backpack with a large brush. Maybe you can lightly moisten the brush to remove the dirt. The normally soiled interior is first simply knocked out with the opening downwards and shaken out or sucked out with a vacuum cleaner.
  • Then wipe out stubborn dirt with a damp sponge cloth. If the dirt is very persistent, because the backpack was used very heavily, detergents can not be avoided.
  • Here you should use special laundry detergents for your Dakine pack. Here we recommend a cleaning solution from SENTZ-N-CLEAN® or a detergent that gently and environmentally friendly cleans textiles. Please always pay attention to the leaflet!

With the special detergent you can:

  • Clean only parts of the backpack or
  • Completely soak the backpack in the bathtub in lukewarm water and clean it with a brush / sponge
  • If there are stains in your bag that come from fruit, vegetables or spilled bottles, you can put the stain in warm milk / detergent for at least 15 minutes and wash it out carefully as described above. Best as soon as possible, because once the stains have dried, cleaning becomes very difficult Important: please wash detergent carefully before drying and express the backpack well, so that no soap remains!

 

DRYING

Important: no matter how strong the pollution should be, the backpack should not be put in the tumble dryer. Due to the centrifugal force and the hot air, the high quality of the product could be lost.

  • To dry, you can stuff your Dakine backpack with newspaper
  • Please leave all compartments open to dry
  • Hang the Dakine Backpack upside down in the fresh air in the shade
  • Please do not expose to direct sunlight, because the UV rays could fade the colors
  • Please do not put the backpack on the heater to dry as the material could dry out and become brittle
  • PLEASE DO NOT iron

 

THE RIGHT CARE OF THE PARTS AFTER CLEANING

If you have cleaned your Dakine backpack completely, you should take care of the zippers with a special silicone spray. That makes them smoother and longer lasting.
From time to time backpacks should be impregnated, because the impregnation ensures that drops of water and dirt on the surface can bead off. In addition, the material does not absorb so easily with water and remains pleasantly light.

THE RIGHT CARE OF BELTS, BUCKLES TIE AND FASTENERS

With your Dakine backpack, you should check all fasteners, straps and buckles while cleaning. Because they are constantly in use and can wear through dirt faster.

Maintain the zipper: if the zipper does not run so well due to external contamination or material abrasion, simply

  • Apply a commercially available silicone spray
  • Open and close the backpack several times so that the spray is evenly distributed and prevents too much application.
  • After a short exposure time, clean the zipper with a clean cloth and remove excess spray.

Maintain the Velcro fastener: velcro closures can accumulate over time, a lot of dust and lint, should be maintained again and again. Because if the dirt gets too big, the Velcro cannot hold properly.

  • Brush out dirt with a small (tooth) brush

Please also maintain abdominal straps, chest straps and adjusters, should not work as well over time. Please stay longer in lukewarm water here. This allows deep-seated impurities to be loosened and the ligaments to be made supple again.

THE IMPRESENTATION OF DAKINE BACKPACKS

Most of Dakine's sports backpacks are impregnated. This protects the pack from rain, splashing water and dust. But even this protection gradually decreases due to external influences. With a commercial spray impregnation, the protective layer can be easily restored. However, it should only be applied to areas that are outside the carrying system, otherwise it can cause irritation in persons with sensitive skin.

 

Washing and maintenance of Dakine bags

For a beautiful, healthy life

Whether a handbag, travel bag or a sports bag: Dakine bags are for every purpose and for every need. To ensure that you do not lose their beautiful, practical and functional function, please note the following cleaning tips:

!The most important thing in advance!
No matter how strong the pollution should be, a bag - even a sports bag - must not be taken in the washing machine. Neither at low or cold temperatures, not with mild detergent or without spin. If you are lucky, only the coating or parts of the backpack will break if you are unlucky, then the whole washing machine. 

 

CLEANING

  • Light soiling can usually be easily removed with a sponge or cloth and conventional curd soap
  • For heavier soiling you can bathe your Dakine bags in a warm soapy water. Clean inside and out with a soft sponge
  • As a special pre-treatment of stubborn stains, we recommend to treat them with a soft nail brush or a special stain remover before the lye bath.
  • After the caustic bath, you should wash the bag carefully with cold water to remove any soap residue

THE RUBBER EMERGENCY

Bubble gum in the purse? A nightmare ... that can be eliminated quickly: just empty everything out of the bag, put the bag in a plastic bag and put it in the freezer for a while. Then the frozen piece can be easily detached

THE LIPSTICK EMERGENCY

The lid of your lipstick has come off and now a pink spot adorns the inside pocket of your bag? Drip a few drops of eucalyptus oil on it, let it work for a short time and then wash it out carefully. Smells good and looks phenomenal!

 

DRYING

Important: No matter how strong the contamination should be, please do not put your Dakine bags - of any kind - in the tumble dryer. The spin and hot air could lose the high quality of the product.

  • After you have cleaned or "bathed" your Dakine bag, lightly press it so that any remaining water can escape
  • Store in a dry, sun-protected place (so that the colors do not stay out), keeping in mind that the bag is open
  • If you want, you can stuff the Dakine travel bag, sports bag or purse with newspaper so that the moisture gets absorbed even faster

Washing and maintenance of Dakine fashion

 

1. Care of Dakine t-shirts, hoodies and sweaters

Your stylish, fluffy and comfortable T-shirts and sweaters by Dakine should keep their shape and color as long as possible. So that nothing goes wrong during the washing we have some tips for you:

WASHING

Dakine T-shirts, sweaters & hoodies can be washed in the washing machine without any problem. Please pay attention to the sewn-in paper with the care instructions, on which exactly described

  • What temperatures the product should be washed
  • How the clothes should be dried

We recommend always washing Dakine shirts on the left, especially if they are washed with other things, such as zipped trousers. This protects the material and protects the colors.

 

DRYING

  • We recommend that you do not dry clothes from Dakine in the dryer but in the air. It is more environmentally friendly and prevents clothes from shrinking
  • Please hang up your Dakine T-shirt, sweater, hoody right after washing - but do not put it in direct sunlight. This could fade the colors

2. The proper care of Dakine Lycras

Lycras should protect the body from cold and sun and not lose its shape. To ensure that the high-quality material of Dakine Lycras keep what they promise, even when used heavily, you should always pay attention to the care instructions on the label.
Here's an overview of the different ways to wash / dry your Dakine Surfshirt:

HAND WASHING

If you want to wash your Dakine Lycra by hand, be sure to use lukewarm water as much as possible. Just put a mild detergent (for example from SENTZ-N-CLEAN®) into the sink, or in the bathtub, soak the Lycra and rinse everything carefully with cold water. Wring out Lycra carefully, being careful not to leave any foam inside.

WASHING

Please note: if Lycras are allowed to be washed in the washing machine, this will be noted on the label. The majority of Dakine surf shirts should never be thrown in the washing machine. The spinning process can cause the delicate material to become permanently scratched

DRYING

  • Please let your lycra only dry in the air
  • It's best to lay the lycra flat so it does not streak
  • Do not place over the radiator as heat and dryness can damage the quality of the fabric

 

3. Dakine outerwear

HARDSHELL JACKETS / HARDSHELL PANTS

Dakine ski and snowboard jackets and pants are top technical products. Most of them are windproof, waterproof, breathable and really stylish. That's why you do not have to worry about washing Dakine's outerwear. Just note a few little things and you will enjoy your hardshell jacket / hardshell pants for a long time!

THE GENERAL RULE:

  • Please always note the washing instructions on the label of your Dakine ski & snowboard outerwear. Every jacket / pant with membrane can be worn at max. Be washed 40 degrees
  • All zippers, as well as cover strips and bands close.
  • For all hardshell products, however, please use a bit of an extra mild or even better a special detergent for outdoor products (for example Nikwax - Tech Wash).
  • The advantage: they are mild and leave no residue that could clog the pores.
  • Please refrain from softener, stain remover, heavy duty detergent, powder or bleach. They can clog or damage the pores of the membrane.

 

SPECIAL MEMBRANES - SPECIAL WASHING PROGRAMS

  1. POLARTEC® HARDSHELL / PU-MEMBRANE

    Dakine Outerwear made of Polartec® or with a PU membrane can be worn at max. Wash at 30 ° C in the washing machine. Please make sure that all detergent residues are washed out. Let it dry in the open air while lying down.

  2. GORE-TEX® MEMBRANE

  3. SYMPATEX®

    Hardshell jackets and hardshell pants with Sympatex® wash best in the gentle cycle between 40° C and 60° C. Please make sure that the washing machine is not too full, so that everything can be rinsed out well.
    Please use a gentle spin-drying program!

 

IMPRESENTATION OF DAKINE OUTERWEAR

An impregnation of modern, high-quality outerwear by Dakine usually last up to 50 washes. Note: Impregnation is reactivated in the dryer! The impregnation can wash out beforehand - you can test at home whether the impregnation is still working.

THE IMPRESSION TEST:

  • Put a few drops on the jacket and see what happens. If the impregnation still works, then the material forms small drops, which then "roll" down the jacket or can easily be shaken off.
  • However, if the water penetrates into the fabric, it is time to refresh the impregnation.
  • Please test in several places, so on the shoulders, the outsides, the trouser legs etc.

NOTE: just because the impregnation of your hardshell products stops working, it does not mean that your jacket is no longer waterproof. The membrane remains unaffected by the impregnation.

You have the following options:

  • Put a towel over the hardshell jacket / pants and iron carefully and not too hot
  • Use impregnation spray


HOW OFTEN?
How often you can wash your Dakine outerwear is at your own discretion. In principle, you should make sure that the hardshell jacket or pants are washed as often as necessary, but as rarely as possible.

If she no longer feels clean or dirty, or if she stops holding water, then wash her. Please always pay attention to the care instructions on the label. In case of doubt call the Dakine-Shop and ask!

 

Washing and maintenance of Dakine gloves:

Washing

First of all please pay attention to the care symbols on the sewn-in label on Dakine bike gloves. Even gloves with clarion-leather or neoprene trim can be washed. However, in case of doubt we recommend to wash cycling gloves by hand because this is the gentlest method. Put the gloves in a mild solution of soap and warm water (without any fabric softener!) and gently scrubbing it with a soft sponge inside and outside.

Bike gloves by Dakine should not be dried in the dryer, because it may shrink. Please hang them immediately after washing on the hanger to air dry.

Please note that the bike gloves should not dry in the Sun, because the leather- or neoprene trim may become porous.

Care instructions:

For gloves with Goretex protection it is recommended to use a treatment with an impregnating solution after washing, to ensure dirt and moisture protection. For this purpose, we recommend the SENTZ-N-DRY® impregnation solution (available here in the shop).Leather and neoprene trim should be treated regularly with appropriate preparations such as leather fat, so the leather / neoprene remains supple.

IMPREGNATION / CARE

We recommend that you treat your gloves with Goretex® membrane from time to time with an impregnating solution, so that the dirt and moisture protection is maintained.

 

Washing and maintenance of Dakine hydration systems

An important hygienic issue

The mouthpiece of your Dakine hydration system will quench your thirst at the right moment. In order to keep the hygiene in the bag and tube you should pay attention to a few hints:

CLEANING

  • If possible, clean the Dakine hydration system after each use. Especially when it was filled with juice, isotonic and / or strong sugary drinks. Unfortunately, bacteria and mold develop rapidly.
  • The hydration system can be rinsed with water up to 60 degrees, please do not use boiling water, otherwise the hydration system could be damaged
  • A good tip to prevent bacteria: SENTZ® Refresh Cleaner. Easy to use, gentle and environmentally friendly. Please note the instructions on the bottle label!
  • If you only fill your hydration system with water, it is sufficient to rinse with water after each use.
  • If you like to fill your hydration system with juice or effervescent tablets, it may be helpful to always clean the hydration system with a little detergent and a sponge. To do this, remove the drinking tube from the bladder and carefully wash out the hydration bladder.
  • Are you always on the move and do not you always have a lot of time to clean your hydration system? Put on a second hydration bladder! So you always have one as a replacement, if it has to go fast.
  • Outdoor junkies who are constantly on the move should clean their hydration pod whenever they have the opportunity. For a fountain with clear water or a mountain stream is enough.
  • Everyone should be aware of the importance of good hygiene for their health!

DRYING

  • Drinking bubbles basically need their time to dry. Give her time
  • A little bit faster it is, if you hang the bubble with the opening down and stuff a fresh dishcloth or kitchen paper into it. This absorbs the moisture
  • For the drinking tube, use a special tube brush and clean the tube from the inside. This will save you a lot of time and patience
  • The mouthpiece: please remove from the tube and soak in a glass of warm rinse water.
  • Please take enough time here and remove any dirt with a small nail brush
  • Wash everything well - let it dry long and carefully!
