A tent is a must-have for our outdoor camping. Everyone knows that the tent fabric mainly has PU coating and silicon coating, and most of the seams of the tent are laminated with waterproof tape to achieve the purpose of waterproofing.

Since the tent uses waterproof tape, if it is folded and stored, the waterproof tape will bend and be compressed by external forces, which will easily cause the waterproof tape to fall off. However, due to the large size of the tent, under normal conditions, it is impossible to hang the tent for storage. So what should we pay attention to when storing the tent?

1. After the tent is used, in addition to cleaning the dust and attachments in time, the moisture on both sides of the fabric should also be wiped off, and the tent should be completely dried before folding and storing. This is very important. If it is stored before it is completely dried, it is easy to cause problems such as mildew and adhesion of the fabric. Affect the service life of the tent!

2. After the tent is completely dry and folded and stored, try not to put other items on the tent, so as to avoid permanent fatigue at the bend of the waterproof tape material and degumming.

3. Take out the tent regularly or irregularly to cool in the sun (avoid direct sunlight) for half a day, rearrange it and fold it for storage. The advantage is that it can prevent mildew and adhesion of the tent fabric, and it can also make the bending part of the tent waterproof. The rubber strip will not cause permanent fatigue and prolong the overall service life of the tent.

4. After the tent is cleaned, it is not advisable to compress and store it with the original storage bag.
