Looking after recycled sailcloth
- If you can, store your products in the dry
- If your windbreak or others gets salt water on it, wash it off with fresh water and allow to dry (they dry very quickly)
- Try not to roll up your windbreak wet, give it a few minutes to dry
- Sails will crease if you crunch them up so roll the windbreaks and if you have to pack the bag or make it smaller, be a little careful when folding, fold along the already made creases
- In the unlikely event you get any mould or mildew, scrub with soapy water. You will only get this if you leave them outside unused and unattended for a long period of time.
- Most stains will wash off with soapy water
- For tougher stains, try biotex which you should be able to get in a supermarket (sailmakers recommendation, not ours) lemons and bicarbonate of soda also work and more eco friendly
- Blood stains can be tricky and old wives tale says you should rinse with cold water first, not hot water.
We love sails and a little rinse once in a while will keep them looking good.
