Nikwax TechWash® is a highly effective cleaner of technical outerwear and equipment. Additionally, it will revitalise existing Durable Water Repellency (DWR) and revive breathability. Your outerwear clothing and equipment could be soaking up water because the DWR has been compromised by dirt, or because it has been cleaned with conventional laundry detergent.
Dirt attracts water and conventional laundry detergents leave behind a water attractive (hydrophilic) residue which masks the DWR, causing fabrics to absorb water and ‘wet out’ in damp or wet conditions. Therefore, they need to be avoided when cleaning DWR treated clothing and equipment.
If your outerwear clothing or equipment is relatively new, or recently treated with a Nikwax waterproofer, then cleaning with Nikwax TechWash® will not only remove contaminants, such as dirt and residues left behind by household detergents but also revitalise DWR.
