After careful study (and let’s be honest, the bright geeen balls) I settled on this brand. Seriously tho, 3 little green ball that look like blowfish... who doesn’t want those rolling around in their dryer?
In light of full transparency, I’d also like to state that I’m the idiot you saw at the specialty outdoor store selling a kidney for the best down bags in the world. I have 2 Western Mountaineering bags (handmade in the US), a Marmot and some other stupidly expensive bag I can’t remember the name of. Suffice to say, could have purchased a small farm in Northern Ireland if I hadn’t made these purchases. So that’s what we’re dealing with here.
So before actually using the product, I consulted Google. Some dude actually wrote an article where the process takes him like 3 hours per bag... in a laundromat. I’m not that hardcore about my leisure washing activities (apparently he likes hanging out in laundromats) but he did have some good advice (that echoed another article or two I read). First is that everyone suggests using a front loader washer. As fate would have, I own one. Second they recommend washing on the gentle cycle. And third, do an additional rinse after the the wash to make sure all the soap is thoroughly removed. I also used Max Extract to try get the most water out. After the wash, it’s recommended that you dry the bag on low heat for like 6 days or something. Actually, I set the timer for like 15-20 minutes and fluffed the bag everytime the cycle was over. The whole drying process proably did take like 1.5-2hours, but only because I was playing the PS4 and wasn’t extremely diligent everytime the timer buzzed. Of course I’d say the the time will vary based on if you have a 900 fill power -10deg bag vs a 700 FP 35 deg. I only washed one bag with this product. A 750 FP 0 degree bag.
The bag honestly smelled like 300lbs of get back before the wash and pretty much like nothing after the wash. I mean no smell at all, which is what I was hoping for. I’m not a fragrance kinda guy. I mean, if you’re into waking up every morning to the smell of mint-lavender, you do you, but this isn’t that product.
Now the final verdict. The bag seems to have cleaned up fine (minus a stain or two) and the loft retuned to a pretty good level. The main reason for the 3-Star is this particular kit includes the mystery balls. Yes, that’s the reason I sprung for the extra few bucks, and they didn’t do squadoosh... at least in my dryer. I know, because my fancy overpriced dryer has a glass window on the front. I would toss the balls into the middle of the dryer, however within second they worked their way right to front of the window and rolled around on top of each other, not really even touching the bag. At first I kept stopping the dryer over and over again, tossing my balls in the center and hoping for different results, again and again. Alas I became resigned to the cruel truth that although the bright green spiked balls were quite fun to watch in the dryer, they did nothing to help work out the little clumps of goose down that develope after washing a down sleeping bag. However... I may just be a victim of “Designed in America” engineering. My dryer has a slight lip in front of the glass door which may have given the balls a groove to fall into. Also, my bag filled up the dryer pretty good. Maybe with a smaller bag or something like a down jacket the spike balls would work perfectly. As it were, my nimble fingers did the work every time I came to check on the bag. My recommendation; save a few bucks, buy the balls-free down wash and pitch a few (Spalding) tennis balls in the dryer... (turns out that’s what the 3+ hour laundromat wash pros do). I mean, but seriously, who spends like 3.5 hours in a coin operated laundromat washing a sleeping bag... and how much did that cost?
I followed the directions for this product using my home's top-load washer, with Warm wash water to ensure activation of the cleaner. I washed the parka two times, back-to-back, before putting the parka into the dryer -- on Low -- with the green spheres. 2 hrs later the parka was dry, and the loft was 85% restored (subjective measurement).
As there were no stains or dirt on the parka before washing with the Kit, I can't comment on the product's ability to remove grime. But I'm quite confident that this product will work as advertised for taking care of the down in outerwear.

After a search online, I found this product and decided to try as a last ditch attempt to revive the jacket. How pleased I was!!! I followed the instructions to the letter and the jacket came out as good as new, thank goodness!!!!
I would 100% recommend.
This product is just what I needed. Poured the solution into my washer/dryer and put only the jacket inside. Normal wash cycle. Then I opened it put all 3 dryer balls in. I put the dryer on for 60 and it came out looking good as new. Just had to wipe some lint off of it
Washed Jack Wolfskin down jacket and still grubby and yet again after second wash. Didn’t bother a third time with the JW jacket.
Both jackets smell fresh however a bit of a disappointment to be honest. Off to tumble dry now for the rest of the day (if other reviews are anything to go by)
Then into the dryer (still inside out and zippers all up) with the 3 white balls (yes I didn’t get the green balls as per the advertised pictures) under Delicates + Low heat (about 56 minutes). It was a little drier but still quite wet. And then under Timed Programme cold (3 cycles) which was a waste of time really. Finally decided to take the risk and use Timed Programme Warm + Low heat (20 minutes each time) and had it done maybe 10 times (or more, I lost count!) to ensure it’s REALLY dry. Jacket is all fluffy and feels new again!
Ps. Actually I fell asleep after a few cycles and woke up 6 hours later panicking that the moist jacket would smell musty from being left inside the dryer and that I need to wash it all over again. Indeed it was musty. But I decided to continue drying with the Time Programme Warm + Low heat and after one cycle the musty smell is gone and the jacket actually smells “fresh” and seems to fluff up easier. And then I continue few more cycles to ensure it is 100% dry. Hope this helps!
I followed the instructions on the box and then tumble dried on a low heat with the balls in and stopping it every 15mins to tease the padding into position and it’s miraculous. I‘m amazed and still can’t quite believe the coat is back to as good as new and the padding is evenly distributed throughout and soft again.
Couldn’t recommend this highly enough.
