PROPER CARE OF YOUR PFD
Clean with a mild soap and running water.
Never dry your PFD close to a direct heat source, clean it with strong detergents, or dry clean it.
Air-dry PFDs in a well ventilated space out of sunlight.
Never use your PFD as a cushion for kneeling or sitting on, or acting as a fender.
Regularly check PFDs for buoyancy: with your PFD on, wade into the water to waist height, bend your knees, roll onto your back, and see how well you float.
