Taking Care Of Your Clothing
Use Nikwax to stay dry, warm and comfortable in wet weather. Nikwax cleans, re-proofs and maintains breathability of all outdoor clothing & footwear.
This removes contaminants, dirt and everyday grime that masks the water-repellent coatings on waterproof items. All water repellent finishes work at their best if the garments are kept clean. Nikwax wash-in cleaners for clothing and equipment will safely remove any detergent residues ingrained in the fabric that would encourage wetting-out, ie. where water isn’t repelled from the fabric but absorbed into the fibres. Regular cleaning prevents damage.
Whether it's clothing, footwear or equipment, the second stage of the process must always be to waterproof. Using any one of our waterproofing products will ensure a durable, long-lasting effect against rain, keeping you, your feet or your equipment dry in wet weather. Using Nikwax will maintain the breathable performance of gear, preventing moisture build-up on the inside of gear allowing it to be pushed from the inside out, keeping your body at the right temperature. At the same time Nikwax repels rain from the outer surface, keeping you dry from both directions.
