    Hi guys

    After doing my first troop in the past week which I throughly enjoyed I have become stuck. After the troop I was incredibly sweaty and the jacket was rather moist! ;) So I want to wash my flightsuit but I'm worried if I do will all the weathering that's been done wash out? Wondering how you all get on with it.

    Thanks

    Matt's right. Just use Febreze. Don't risk washing out the weathering.

    it depends on what you used to weather it. if you used a spray bottle of rit dye it might fade a little, but overall it shouldn't be a problem. spray paint weathering might lose some but it would still look dirty. more natural weathering techniques, i'm not so sure about.

    I used spray paints and I have washed mine with no ill effects. In fact it probably evened out everything a bit.

    But most of the time I just Febreze..........

    I washed mine because I overweathered and it was looking a little gray. That did bring the blue back, but didn't seem to get rid of weathering. It will definitely change it slightly.

    I know it sounds crazy but an old theatre trick is to spritz it with vodka. The alcohol kills the bacteria that makes it smell and then dissipates.

    Arkady is right. At dragon con (4 day long troop) I always take vodka to spray on my stuff. Works great.
