Washing Instructions

October 27th 2018 teflon

Our Fence Buster range has the added benefit of Du Ponts Sheild+ Teflon Coating so the rug resists water absorption and also dries up to 50% quicker than normal fabrics following heavy rain. The Teflon coating helps to protect the fabrics and provides a more durable and breathable rug. If you have your rugs washed annually you can revive the Teflon coating by asking your rug washer to to refresh the dwr coating using either a Teflon or Nik Wax or similar dwr application.

Washing your Rug 

All of our rugs can be washed the same as any other turnout rug, just be sure you follow the three golden rules of washing a waterproof garment

  1. Always wash at or below 30Oc  – Any hotter and you might strip out the waterproof coating of the fabric
  2. Always use a special liquid or powder designed for washing waterproof garments – Using a normal household washing powder or liquid may destroy the waterproof coating
  3. Always line dry your rug – Tumble drying is likely to melt away the waterproof coating
