Nikwax Tech Wash &TX Direct
Washing a waterproof jacket with a regular detergent is like cleaning your car with paint stripper.
The detergent removes the durable water repellent (DWR) layer from the outside of the jacket, compromising its ability to keep you dry.
Nikwax Tech Wash is a non-aggressive, non-detergent soap that is safe to use on a garment with a DWR coating. That said, the waterproofing still wears off over time.
That’s when you should use Nikwax TX Direct, a wash-in re-waterproofing agent that revitalises an old raincoat.
Using both products will ensure that you get many years of service from your waterproof garments.
