Clean and proof your gear with the Nikwax Techwash and TX Direct twin-pack, to extend the life and improve the performance of jackets and waterproof trousers.
Nikwax is easy to use – you just wash the product in. More importantly, Nikwax is safe: it’s water-based, non-toxic, doesn’t use propellant gases or fluorocarbons, and it's bio-degradable, so it has less impact on the environment.
You may feel that proofing a waterproof is an extra faff, but all waterproofs, however good the brand, will get progressively less waterproof as time passes. This is because the coating that prevents absorption of water into the material is affected by dirt. Cleaning with a conventional laundry detergent can have an impact on the item's breathability, which is why it's advisable to use specialist cleaning products such as Nikwax.
