How to wash your Gortex Rain Jacket and Pants

The question was simple:

OK, I confess….
I have never washed them 

They don’t really get dirty or sweaty, so I just hose them down, or rinse them in plain water to get mud off the trouser bottoms….

I’m afraid that proper ‘washing’ might destroy the water proofing or breathability of the fabric.
I love my rain pants and jacket. Totally waterproof, wind proof and breathable….

Any advice on washing them ‘safely’……
