Dry suit care

Hi all,
I need to clean my gore-Tex dry suit and maybe restore the DWR. Any suggestions what to use and do?

I'm pretty sure kokatat has specifics for this on their site.

According to the "Product Care" tab of the GMER page:

Wash before use first to remove dye residue.
Always rinse after saltwater use.
Machine-wash warm (104 F/40 C). Gentle cycle. No bleach.
Hang dry or machine dry at low temperature setting.
Do not dry-clean.
I just threw mine in the wash over lunch, I'll let you know how it goes. I went gentle cycle, warm water, and Tech-Wash in a front loader.
