Care & Repair
Proper care and repair of GORE® Protective Fabrics ensures that the fabric maintains its protective properties and breathability. Other components, such as fasteners, zippers, and leather outer shells are often added to boots, garments, and gloves. These components may be harmed by the care instructions described for the fabrics, so be sure to review the manufacturer’s care instructions before you begin.
Cleaning waterproof, windproof, and breathable GORE-TEX® fabric ensures its long life and maximum performance.
Protective gear that includes CROSSTECH® fabric requires special care; however, cleaning the fabric itself does not require any special equipment or solutions.
