Alabama-based Frogg Toggs is a manufacturer of a line of lightweight, breathable rainwear and other outerwear. Cleaning your Frogg Toggs isn't difficult; the company advises you should never dry-clean them. In between cleanings and after use, you should store rainwear and waders in a cool, dry place to forestall mildew. Avoid bunching the garments in tight quarters, as the folds can trap moisture that encourages mildew, which can be both unpleasant and unhealthful.

Step 1

Hand-wash the Frogg Toggs rainwear or waders in warm water and mild detergent. The detergent should be free of additives, Frogg Toggs advises.

Step 2

Rinse the materials and hang them up to air-dry.

Step 3

Store rainwear once dry on a hanger in a cool, dry location. Waders should be stored upside down, out of sunlight.

Warnings

  • Store the garments away from excessive heat and keep them away from flame. Frogg Toggs advises not to store waders near electric appliances.
