Nikwax TX Direct Wash-in is the no.1 waterproofing product on the market: an easy way to reproof your gear. By using Nikwax proofing and care products, you'll extend the life and enhance the performance of your waterproof gear.
It's not just about keeping the rain out. If the outer fabric of your waterproof starts to absorb water, the garment can lose up to 70% of its breathability, which means you'll get sweatier inside your coat!
- Water-based, non-toxic, doesn’t use propellant gases or fluorocarbons, and is bio-degradable so it has less impact on the environment.
- Easy-to-use, wash once in your washing machine (or hand-wash garments if you're on the road).
- 300ml good for proofing one coat three times.
Using Nikwax Direct Wash-in:
- Make sure you wipe the washing machine detergent dispenser, so you don't get any stray laundry liquid or washing powder in the wash
- Place maximum of 2 clean garments in washing machine, pour in 100ml per garment.
- Use a 30°C synthetic cycle and slow spin.
Handwashing with Nikwax Direct Wash-ine
- Make sure your garment is clean (use Nikwax Techwash to clean)
- Use gloves (to avoid waterproofing your hands!)
- Put the garment in 6 litres of hand-hot water and add 50ml of TX.Direct
- Give it a stir and leave it to soak for 5-10 minutes. Give it a good scoosh around.
- Rinse with cold water until water runs clear.
