If you've cleaned your wet weather clothing and it's water repellency is still compromised, it's time to reproof your clothing.
Nikwax TX.Direct is the No.1 easy to use, safe, high performance wash in waterproofing for wet weather clothing.
One sachet per garment.
Nikwax TX.Direct Wash-In is the market leader. It is easy and quick to apply in a washing machine, and its highly Durable Water Repellency (DWR) develops on air drying. The washing machine application ensures that the treatment goes right through the garment, treating seams, tapes and cords, as well as the fabric. Also, as the need for tumble drying is removed, this saves energy and protects more vulnerable, older, garments from heat. Nikwax TX.Direct Wash-In has been specifically designed and optimised for breathable waterproof garments; it leaves a flexible water repellent treatment on individual fibres allowing moisture vapour to pass through, maintaining breathability.
For best results remove all non-washable parts and always clean item(s) first with Nikwax Tech Wash® in a separate wash cycle. No need to dry item(s) before waterproofing
Remove all detergent build up from the detergent dispenser.
Place maximum of 2 clean garments in washing machine.
Use 100ml per garment.
Run 30°C synthetic cycle and slow spin.
Do not machine-wash garments if taped seams have become dislodged.* To maintain waterproofing always wash with Nikwax Tech Wash®. Do not use detergents.
*Faulty taped seams sometimes become detached on old or worn garments. They can be re-stuck using a proprietary clear glue after waterproofing and drying.
