I have two light colored jackets (white camo and white) and wouldn't think twice about washing them because 1) it'll likely not become clean 2) it'll likely become dirtier 3) I expected dirt and such to show more when I decided to buy light colored jackets. If I felt the need, I would only spot clean them with a Tide stick to see if that worked.

If that doesn't work for you then you can try taking it to a dry cleaner and get their expertise on the matter.

think soaking it in warm water then a rub down would work? no Washer what so ever? and i could always soak it in Nikwax to recoat the DWP if it did take it off

when i was buying my oakley jacket. they said to use liquid detergent instead of the normal stuff because that would take off the waterproofness of the jacket. hope that helps.

never washing you jacket is just ridiculous... i only buy white snowboarding coats and never have a problem with them coming clean...def dont use bleach...use some spot treatment with oxygen cleansing agent in it...then soak it by its self in cold water for a few hours and wash on a delicate cycle... then dry it with low heat just for a few minutes and let it air dry the rest of the way

For the white clothing, I always use bleaching powder to clean. But if the clothing is very expensive, I will send it to the cleaners.
