Washing Your Harness

The subject of washing safety harnesses comes up from time to time by our sweatiest visitors. Can you wash your harness? Well can you?

The somewhat simple answer is yes. However, you want to keep it out of your washing machine, and you should NEVER put your harness in the dryer.

If you need to clean a harness the best way is to put a mild solution of water and commercial soap or detergent on a damp cloth and rub your harness down creating a thick lather. (Are we talking about shaving?) You want to AVOID fully immersing your harness in water to soak. Then wipe the harness down with a clean cloth.

In order to dry, you'll want to hang your harness freely. Don't wad it up in a ball in the corner of your bedroom. Mom will yell at you. You also want to keep it away from heat and out of direct sunlight. Exposing the harness to heat during the drying process can compromise the integrity of the fibers and stitching in your harness.

So, there you go. Don't soak it and don't put it in the dryer. If you need any more advice let us know.
