5. How do I wash kids waders?
We recommend you wash our products by hand in 30°C. Fill the Wader up with water, put detergents in it, and let it soak for a while. Pour out the water and rinse well. You can, of course, wash waders in the washing machine from time to time, but as with all other rainwear, the rubbing against the walls of the machine's drum, wears the wader out quicker. Wash it by hand and it will keep its strength longer.
Drip drying: Hang it upside down so the water can drain.
In airing cupboard: Hang it upright, using the straps provided.
On heated floors: Put the boots on the floor and fold the trouser down.
The Playground Wader dries faster if you dry it inside out.
How to help your child get into the wader by itself:
Fold the trousers down the outside of the wader, your child steps in and pulls them up! 🙂
6. Any safety tips?
Safety using the Playground Wader!
WARNING: If you use the Playground Wader near or at the open sea, always use an approved lifevest!
The Playground Wader is first and foremost designed to use on land, in the forest, at the mountain and in the Kindergarden or daycarecenter and outdoor in rainy weather, and NOT in the sea. It is supposed to keep the child dry when he or she is playing in the ponds.
If you have to use the Playground Wader at the open sea, there always has to be an adult present and the child has to wear an approved lifevest at any time. If the child falls into the water, not wearing a lifevest, the wader will be filled up with water, air will be pushed into the boots, the child's feet will float up, and the upper body and head will be pushed under water. The child MUST wear an approved lifevest, to keep the upper body floating.
Because of the risk of water filling up inside the wader, we recommend to use a lifevest that holds 10 kg more than the child's weight. If the lifevest is properly adjusted around the waist, it will keep the water from flowing into the wader too.
