Cleaning and maintaining a bomber jacket depends on its material. Here are general tips for common bomber jacket materials:

For Nylon or Polyester Bomber Jackets:

  1. Spot Cleaning: Use a damp cloth with mild soap to spot clean stains or dirt. Gently rub the affected area and allow it to air dry.

  2. Machine Wash: Check the care label for specific instructions. In many cases, nylon or polyester bomber jackets can be machine washed in cold water on a gentle cycle. Use a mild detergent and avoid harsh chemicals or bleach.

  3. Air Dry: Hang the jacket to air dry instead of using a dryer. Direct heat can damage the fabric or cause shrinkage.

  4. Avoid Ironing: Nylon and polyester can melt or become damaged when exposed to high heat. Avoid ironing or use a low-temperature setting if necessary, but it's often better to steam wrinkles out.
