It's a Oakley Amplier Snowboard Pants. The shell is not Gortex. It's 15K water proof and 20K breathable material and has 60g of thinsulate insulation.
I'm not sure if the water proofing is laminate wash or spray on.

How to clean road salt/dirt stains on pants and jacket?
My car was covered in road salt and dirt. While putting my gear away in the trunk, the pants and jacket was rubbing against the bumper of my car.
Both my pants and jacket have road salt/dirt stains on them. I washed it once like how I usually wash them. Cold water, gentle cycle, using Penguin sports wash detergent.
Penguin detergent is like Nikwax tech wash product used for cleaning water proof/moisture wicking clothing.
The salt/dirt stain was still there after washing it. So I wash it again using the normal wash setting instead of the gentle cycle using cold water again. The second wash did clean some of the stain off but not all of it (~50%).
Does anyone know how to get rid of road salt/dirt stain from waterproof/moisture wicking clothing? Should I wash it again using warm water?
