What is the best way to care for and maintain a tent?

To keep your tent in good condition and prolong its lifespan, here are some tips for care and maintenance:

General Information:

  • Use a floor protector to prevent dirt and abrasion from damaging the tent.
  • After taking out the stakes, freestanding tents can be turned upside down and gently shaken out.
  • Wet tents should be taken out of their packsack and hung up to dry as soon as possible to prevent mold and mildew growth.
  • For difficult zips, treat them with a silicone spray and brush with a toothbrush to improve performance.
  • If a zip no longer closes correctly, gently pinch the zip together near the lower end with a small pair of pliers.


  • Do not use laundry detergent or other cleaners to clean a tent.
  • If the tent gets very dirty, soak it in lukewarm water and use a soft brush to wash the dirty areas with a solution of Nikwax Tech Wash and water.
  • After cleaning, rinse the tent with water and treat it with Nikwax Tent and Gear Proof.
  • When camping in coastal regions with salt water, rinse the poles regularly with clear water to avoid corrosion.


  • Loosely fold the tent during storage or store it in its packsack in a cool, well-ventilated, dry space.
  • Do not store a tent on a PVC floor or in direct contact with PVC materials, oils, or fuels.
  • Roll the poles up in the tent to prevent sharp objects from pushing into the tent fabric.

Seam Sealing:

  • Set up the tent in a dry, well-ventilated location.
  • Clean and tighten all surfaces that will be treated with seam sealer.
  • Apply Silicone Seam Sealer from the inside to all seams using a brush or small sponge.
  • Use sparingly and allow to dry for 12 hours.
  • Use Silicone Seam Sealer on siliconised tents.
