How to Clean Canada Goose Jackets

We’re going to take a wild guess and say, if you own a Canada Goose jacket, it’s your favourite winter coat.  Are we right?!

Along with other iconic winter wear, like Uggs, Canada Goose jackets enjoy a large, dedicated following. But, also like Uggs, it’s important to know exactly how to clean your Canada Goose parka.

Specialized clothing like Uggs and Canada Goose are in high demand for similar reasons. They both have distinctive styling, and they both are more comfortable and better performing than other similar garments. And that’s why how you clean them is important. Without using the right cleaning methods, it can ruin the looks, comfort and performance you bought them for.

Tips for Cleaning Canada Goose Jackets

There are other benefits you get from the proper care and cleaning of your jacket. It will last longer and keep looking like new for longer too.

Don’t Machine Wash

One of the reasons you must be careful when cleaning the jacket is to keep its water-repelling and insulating properties intact. The agitator in top-loading washing machines can damage the jacket and its water resistance. Even if you have a front-loading machine with the gentlest of washing cycles, the risk of damaging your jacket is high. And, once it loses its ability to repel water and/or keep you warm, you won’t be able to get it back like it was.

If you are still not convinced about not machine-washing your parka, Canada Goose voids your warranty if you do.

Spot Clean

Small stains, dirt deposits or marks may be removed with spot cleaning. Use a bit of a mild, bleach-free, down-safe detergent in water. Before you clean the spot, test your mix on a part of the jacket that isn’t visible.

What Canada Goose Says About Cleaning

Here are the instruction listed under “How do I clean my Canada Goose garment?” on the Canada Goose website.

“When your down-filled parka requires cleaning, it is important that you take it to a reputable dry cleaner.”

Parkers’ Canada Goose Jacket cleaning service uses a non-toxic process. It keeps your parka looking new and its water-resistance intact. If you really want to give your parka the best care and cleaning possible – and keep it looking and feeling like new – let Parkers Dry Cleaners do it for you.
