How to wash and dry a sleeping bag

Many of us enjoy using the Easter long weekend to go camping, relax, and spend some quality time with family and friends.

As it is such a busy holiday period, it’s a good idea to do some pre-checking of the tent and camping essentials, such as the sleeping bags and linen, to make sure everything is ready for the big trip!

Washing the sleeping bags keeps them feeling fresh and in top condition.

So, how do you wash and dry a sleeping bag? Easy!

At Snap Laundromat, all you need is your sleeping bag, one of the large front loaders and one of the express dryers, and a couple of tennis balls!

Use one of the big front loaders at Snap Laundromat to wash your sleeping bag in a snap!
  1. Always check the washing and care instructions. Most sleeping bags can be washed but you need to be sure before you proceed.
  2. Select a large front loader washing machine. Do not use a top loader, as the drawstring and straps of the bag can get caught or tangled on the agitator.
  3. Zip the bag up and place in the front loader.
  4. Select Cold Water (gentle) wash. At Snap, we installed an automatic dosing system which automatically injects high quality mild detergent into the machines with every wash, so there is no need to add detergent.
  5. Avoid fabric softeners and bleach, especially with down bags.  Don’t expose yourself and the environment to the chemicals in softeners and bleach if you don’t need to.
  6. When complete, get the sleeping bag carefully out of the machine, place in a basket, and allow it to drip dry outside for a few minutes.
  7. Do not wring the water out; instead, just press the water out where possible.

For many sleeping bags, it is possible to use a large dryer like the ones at Snap, where the bag can freely tumble around. While this is suitable for most sleeping bags, read the label carefully before you proceed.

  1. Set the tumble dryer setting to low.
  2. Ensure that the bag is not still soaked (allow drip drying first).
  3. Placement of one or two tennis balls in the dryer can assist in ensuring even distribution of down or filling while the bag dries.
  4.  Tumble dry at low setting only. Check regularly and remove as soon as it has dried.
