How To Wash Carhartt Jacket

The Carhartt jacket is an excellent style, but here’s the question. Can you wash Carhartt jackets? Are you looking for tips on how To Wash A Carhartt Jacket properly? If so, then you’ve come to the right place!

This blog post will share some easy-to-follow instructions that will help you keep your jacket clean and look its best. Here’s how to wash Carhartt jackets like a pro and other things you need to know.

To maintain the thermal protective properties of Carhartt flame-resistant twill clothing, please follow these laundering instructions: Machine wash warm at temperature not to exceed 160°F (70°C). Do not use chlorine bleach, hydrogen peroxide bleach, softeners or starch. Tumble dry low, remove promptly.

Pretreat any Stains (optional)

Disclaimer, this will not work on paint or paint-like stains.

If the jacket is stained with grass, blood, dirt, or oil, pre-treating it with a stain treatment guaranteed to work on those stains is a good idea. If you lack a stain treatment, dish soap and a little cold water applied to the area of the stain will also work.

This targets the stain before putting it all the way through the wash.

Wash in Warm Water

Per the jacket’s washing instructions, you should put the jacket into the washing machine with the water set to warm. You can, if you want, wash it with cold water as cold water can prevent stretching and is easier on the clothing.

Use whatever detergent you please, but do not use anything with bleach in it. Bleach can break down the fibers of the clothing and ruin the colors of the jacket.

Check the label

This should go without saying: every time you decide to wash an item of clothing, make it a habit to check the label. As you know, a lot of clothes are not machine washable, so washing them at home will ruin them. Lucky for you though, Carhartt jackets are machine washable. However, just because you now know this does not mean that you should disregard the label on the jacket. The label contains useful information for the whole cleaning process, including how to wash it, at what temperature you should wash it, how to dry it, if you can iron it, etc.


Can jacket be washed in washing machine?

While, yes, you can expect 100% cotton Carhartt jackets to shrink some over time, in my experience, the shrinking is minimal, and does not affect what size I order. As with anything, after enough wash cycles, the cotton fabric will shrink a little bit.

How do you wash Carhartt without shrinking?

As a general rule, nylon and puffy, down-filled jackets, coats, and vests can all go in the washing machine. Wash them on a gentle cycle with cold water and regular detergent.
