To remove a stain from a white North Face rain jacket, follow the cleaning instructions printed on the tag inside of the garment. Wash the jacket in cold water, and do not use bleach.
To wash a North Face rain jacket:
Step 1: Close all zippers and Velcro openings.
Ensure all pockets and seams are closed before putting the jacket in the washing machine.
Step 2: Use cold water.
North Face jackets can be washed in a regular washing machine with cold water on a gentle cycle.
Step 3: Use a mild powder detergent.
Only use powder detergents, since liquid detergents can leave behind a residue that can affect the Durable Water Repellent coating.
Step 5: Rinse twice.
Run the jacket through the rinse cycle twice to ensure all detergent residue is removed.
Step 6: Dry on a low temperature.
Once the jacket is cleaned, dry it on a low temperature.
Step 7: Cool iron.
If necessary, use a cool iron to remove wrinkles.
If the cleaning process does not remove the stain, it may be time to find a professional, or to contact North Face directly for advice. However, do not dry clean a North Face rain jacket, since dry cleaning can set-in stains or cause further damage.
