What is the best way to clean and waterproof my textile motorcycle clothing?
Hand wash your textile clothing in warm water (no higher than 30 degrees). Please remove all armour and make sure pockets and Velcro are all fastened before washing. Drip dry or line dry away from any direct heat, and we always recommend using a water repellent spray to re-waterproof the garment.
What’s the best way to clean my motorcycle boots?
If you’ve got your boots a bit dirty and muddy, RST boots are best cleaned using a soapy damp sponge or cloth. Never clean the boots with strong cleaning agents or solvents, always use mild cleaning products to prevent weakening the materials and affecting the colour and finish of the plastic. After cleaning, use a cloth to wipe away any surface water and then place the boots on their sides to dry naturally. Do not attempt to dry the boots using excessive heat. Finish with a specialist leather care product.
