I honestly don't wash my rain gear.I guide most days and dont have time for that.Use it when it rains let it dry depending on weather and stick it in my dry bag till next time.End of the season I do a smell check and might wipe it down with soapy water.That's it. Do I wash my truck.NO.I live in country and go down gravel roads daily it woukd just get dirty again next day and yes rain does pretty good job keeping it clean and my truck is white and they look cleaner than most other colors.sometimes if iam at a beach with my boat I'll give it a once iver otherwise no I don't wash it much.It's white also and looks pretty clean all the time.rather be hunting or fishing than cleaning.
