    How can I wash my down jacket/bubble jacket?

    I would like to know how I can wash my down/bubble jacket? I have problem when i wear it as all the down will stick on my black top which is very annoying. Please advise. Can I dry clean it?

    Does the label have instructions? When in doubt .. dry clean, as long as the dry cleaning bill is less than say 20% of the cost of replacement.

    Thanks for your advice. It did say for dry-cleaning but I have heard dry cleaning is not good for down jacket.

    i would say that dry cleaning is the ONLY way to go... if you wash a down jacket, all of the feathers will clump and stick together...then you will just have a big mess!
