How to Care for Your Faith In Nature X Rainkiss Poncho
So, you’re the proud owner of a Faith In Nature X Rainkiss Poncho – congratulations! Your new, sustainable rainwear is designed to keep you dry for many rainy days to come. To keep it doing its job and looking its best, you’ll need to take good care of it. Here’s how to do just that…
Spot-Clean Small Stains
Jumped in too many muddy puddles? Split sauce from that festival burger down your front? Don’t panic, it happens. To remove any small marks from your poncho, all you need to do is clean the affected area with a damp cloth. No soap, no detergent, nothing else. Just gently wipe away the stain, then hang your poncho up to dry in a well-ventilated area. Voila! Your rainwear is clean and ready to protect you from the next downpour.
Washing Your Poncho
Although it’s best to stick to spot-cleaning any surface marks, sometimes a full wash is the only thing for it. When it comes to wash day for your poncho, be sure to follow these important rules:
- Cold Hand Wash Only – Never put your poncho in a washing machine; just hand wash it in cold water. Our gentle but effective eco-friendly Laundry Liquid is excellent for this job.
- Hang to Dry – Always dry your poncho by hanging it a well-ventilated place. The great outdoors is best, but if you don’t have the space (or it’s raining!) find somewhere inside where air is flowing.
- Do Not Bleach – Of course, you should never let bleach anywhere near your precious poncho.
- Do Not Dry Clean – Don’t take your poncho to the dry cleaners; the chemicals there just won’t agree with it.
In short, washing your poncho is simple: hand-wash in cool water, hang out to dry – that’s all there is to it!
Folding Your Poncho
Your poncho comes with a handy built-in pouch to make it easy to carry around between rain showers. Before you pop it away in its pouch for longer periods, always make sure it’s been thoroughly air-dried. After that, it’s time to have a go at what we like to call poncho origami. Just follow the steps below to fold your poncho perfectly into its pocket.
1 & 2: Fold in thirds
Fold along the vertical length of the poncho, using the hood as a guide.
3. Fold in hood and hem
Fold the hood of your poncho downwards and the bottom hem upwards to tuck them out of the way.
4. Fold in half
You should now have a neat rectangle – fold it in half across the horizontal seam to create a square.
5 & 6. Turn inside out
Finally, flip your poncho inside out, into the storage pouch. Now you have a portable poncho in a pocket, ready for whatever the weather throws at you!
