How to wash a red show jacket

Machine washing can fade the redness of your horse riding jacket. Turning it inside out before placing it in the machine helps retain the red color. Closed buttons, zippers and velcro also prevent damage. Wash at 30°C maximum, in short cycle, with an environmentally friendly detergent. This one will make your laundry clean, without attacking it.
Most importantly, keep detergents and bleach away from your blazer jacket, which could stain it. Your jacket also hates the dryer. It prefers to dry quickly and well in the open air, on a wide hanger or flat. This way, the technical specifics of your show jacket are preserved, such as the elasticity of its mesh and its shape.
