    I also found that the vest has picked up a bit of the dirt and grunge from the inside of the jacket before I washed the it the other day. IMHO the vest should be black, it's not getting any sun anyhow.
    Put just a few inches of water in the bag, make sure you keep it upright so you don't spill it. Take that outside, put the vest in the bag. Shake, rattle and roll till the vest is soaked, remove and don vest, empty remaining water, fold bag back up and place it where you keep it. I've not spilled a drop out of the bag while taking it outside.

    Trial and error may be in order. Do it at home, until you can do it without making a mess

    If I make a.mess at Sheetz they bring out the wet floor sign. If I make a mess at home *I* have to clean it up.


    Kidding

    Maybe?
