Been using my Harrison Changing Tent now for a few years, and it's getting stinky. Build up of sweat from humid summer days.

Has anyone found a good way to wash one of these without ruining the fabric? CE recommends soaking the tent in a bucket of water, with mild dishwashing detergent. They say definitely don't put it in the washing machine.

Just wondering what others may have tried and how it worked?

Thanks for any and all info.

Best,
-Tim

Soak it in a sink, or bucket, with a few drops of mild dish washing detergent mixed in. While soaking, wipe the inside out with a sponge.

Rinse with clean water, let air/drip dry by hanging it up.

Thanks Vincent.

So that works pretty well? Won't damage that rubberized fabric material?

Best,

Not at all. Just use a small amount of detergent (laundry det. is good too), you don't need much, and avoid creasing the material when it's drying.

I put a drop of detergent on the sponge and work it into it well before wiping too.
