Textile gear - washing
How you wash your textile gear like pants and jacket?
I have Ixon crossair jacket and crosstour pants, and by instruction I need to wash them by hand, no washing machine.
But I put them into washing machine, and I use program for very sensitive laundry, and really gently liquid soap for laundry.
I am sweating like 500 kg pig in that suit, and also I use and long functional underwear (top and bottom). That underwear pick 50% of sweat, but other 50% my suit take.
So after 2 week of riding from my home to job and from job to home, my black jacket and pants get white because of salt from sweat, and it is visible on stichest on outside of jacket and pants, inside is more visible.
So I need to wash almost every 2 week my suit.

Which soap you use for washing?
Do you use some stuff after gear is dry for impregnating, so gear is waterproof.
Or you maybe use some stuff for impregnating which you put into washing mashine. (i only heard about that, so if somebody know about that please write).
