Henri Lloyd Garment Care

At Henri Lloyd we always advise on the best procedures for garment care which will in turn increase the longevity of the product.

Henri Lloyd has also developed its own ‘At Home’ Advanced cleaning and protection for all Henri Lloyd Clothing, which both cleans the products and also re proofs the products, called HL Renew.

The Henri-Lloyd range uses a wide range of fabric technologies to ensure a high level of garment performance and comfort. To maintain the performance of the garment, please refer to the washing instructions printed on the label inside your garment. Use pure liquid soap only; do not use any fabric softners or biological washing powders. Use of these treatments will void any warranty on your garment.

In between washing your sailing clothing, it is important to remember that salt is a desiccant and will attract moisture. Consequently, all foul weather gear should be rinsed periodically using fresh water (if available) to prevent salt from accumulating. This will reduce the cold, clammy feeling when first putting the garment on and will significantly increase the level of comfort for the wearer. When you have finished using the garments and before stowing them away, ensure they are thoroughly dried. Do not use direct heat or leave exposed to strong sunlight when drying.

All Henri-Lloyd waterproof garments are treated with a Durable Water Repellency (DWR) finish, which keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated and reducing its breathable performance. Although the DWR can be rejuvenated by either tumble drying at a low heat setting or ironing on the outer face on a cool setting in accordance with the garments wash instructions, it will eventually wear out. If water is no longer beading off the surface of the garment it is time to renew the DWR. Henri-Lloyd recommend HL Renew, one pack will renew 2 garments in a domestic washing machine. 

HL Renew is available to buy at all Henri Lloyd Sailing Stores and major retailers, If you need any further assistance, please contact your local Henri-Lloyd dealer or email Henri-Lloyd customer services customerserivce@henrilloydusa.com
