For a hand wash we recommend: fill the bathtub or a container with water, add a small amount of liquid detergent recommended for delicate garments and add your jacket. Leave it for ten minutes. In case of stubborn stains, rub with a soft brush to remove them. After that time, simply squeeze out the excess moisture and rinse it off in clean water. Finally, hang it to air dry.
