Does anyone know if heated clothes can be washed? Colder weather is going to be upon us soon and I was digging out the electric vest and pants yesterday. After a summer in the basement, they could use a good cleaning to get the "musty" smell out.

GERBING'S recommends either hand washing or machine washing on a gentle cycle but says not to allow the heated liner to go through the spin cycle if machine washing. Allow it air dry. Hope this helps.

Yup.. should have a tag explaining what you can do.. usually on the "handwash" cycle.

Basically, Get some "Lysol" laundry liquid. Start the washer, with the soap but no clothes. When soap is well dissolved, turn machine OFF> then push clothes down into it the water. After 4-5 minutes, lift clothes out and put back in and submerge. Repeat a few times, then set machine to rinse and do that a few times... not the normal "one rinse".

Hang to dry....

You don't mention what brand you have. To be sure and worry-free, you might check with the manufacturer's website for their recommendations.

If you remove them from the washer without having been spun, a good idea is to lie them down on a towel and then roll the towel up together with the garment.

This will remove most of the water and make them easier to dry.
