OK, I admit it: I'm a guy and I have no idea how to wash clothes. Do I need to find a DCA Chapter (Domestic Chores Anonymous)? Seriously -- my Ultrabreeze is just over a year old - and performing wonderfully; it is, however, getting dirty and I have no idea how to wash it. Throw it in the machine? Soak it in the bathtub? What detergent to use? What amount? If anyone has experience with this, I'd appreciate the help! :s:eek::s

I washed mine the other day for the first time; used regular detergent (All Free & Clear) and set the machine on delicate. I hung it on the clothes line to dry. If your machine has a delicate/hand wash cycle you should be OK.

Official washing instructions:
Cold gentle lay flat to dry. Hand wash hood.

Unofficial:
Cold washing will remove body oder, warm and hot will remove propolis. Do not machine wash the hoods. Do not use use any solvent to remove propolis. You will damage the middle layer!. Remember this is beekeeping apparel and not wedding apparel. If you want to wear a beekeeping suit to a wedding I will rent you a new one.;)

Drying: I usually dry on strong plastic hanger and will usually dry with in the hour. Can you put it in the dryer? I have with nothing else on gentle and for 5 minutes. Stand by the dryer. Remember the middle layer is PVC

I've got a 3X jacket on order, it must be delayed for some reason a couple weeks, have been using my veil and long sleeve shirt but I'll be needing it pretty soon when I get in deep for some serious frame/super moving etc.
