Store loose, not compressed. If it gets wet, dry thoroughly before storage. Only use the provided travel sac when travelling to and from your next adventure and when a more compact size is required.
Small dirty marks on the shell fabric may respond to wiping with a damp cloth. If you decide to use a stain remover, use sparingly and make you sure give the item a good airing before use.
WASHING AT HOME
To clean the whole item, down and all, washing is the only way to do it yourself. Clothing can be put through a washing machine or hand wash.
Use a pure soap product, you may need to buy something designed for the job from an outdoor shop. The package will carry its own instructions, so you can follow them, or carry on as below.
Set the washing machine for 'delicate' or 'wool' or the equivalent low temperature wash (usually 30 degrees). Use a side-loading machine.
After it has gone through the spin cycle, most of the water will be out. But it will still need drying. A spell in a tumble dryer will help: lowest heat setting: hot spots may melt the shell fabric. After that air it in a warm place and give it a shake from time to time until you are satisfied that it is completely dry.
