Nikwax Tech Wash and TX. Direct Wash-In Double Pack – Transparent 2 x 1 Litre
Nikwax Tech Wash and TX. Direct Wash-In Double Pack
Nikwax tech wash is the market leader; it has been specifically designed and optimised for breathable waterproof fabrics. Nikwax tech wash is a highly effective cleaner. Additionally, it will revitalise existing durable water repellence (dwr) and revive breathability. It is the safe way to thoroughly clean your waterproof clothing and equipment. Application in a washing machine is quick, easy, and ensures that the whole garment is thoroughly cleaned.
Nikwax TX. Direct Wash-In is the market leader. It is easy and quick to apply in a washing machine, and its highly durable water repellence (dwr) develops on air drying. The washing machine application ensures that the treatment goes right through the garment, treating seams, tapes, and cords, as well as the fabric. Also, as the need for tumble drying is removed, this saves energy and protects more vulnerable, older garments from heat. Nikwax TX. Direct Wash-In has been specifically designed and optimised for breathable waterproof garments; it leaves a flexible water repellent treatment on individual fibres allowing moisture vapour to pass through, maintaining breathability.
Directions for Use – Tech Wash
When using in a washing machine, use neat tech wash and a sponge or soft nylon brush to treat stubborn stains before washing. Remove all non-washable parts. Shake well before use. Follow care label instructions. Do not use detergents. Remove all detergent build-up from the detergent dispenser. Place items in the washing machine (maximum 2 items). Use 150ml in medium/hard water areas and 100ml in soft water areas for 1-2 items. Wash according to care label. When hand washing, use gloves. Immerse items in 6L hand-hot water in a sink or bowl. Use 150ml in medium/hard water areas and 100ml in soft water areas for 1-2 items. Rinse 3 times in clean water. If your kettle furs up, you have hard water. For extreme hard water, use 200ml. If the item doesn’t require re-waterproofing, air dry or tumble dry on a low setting if the care label allows. If you intend to re-waterproof the washed item, there is no need to dry it first. Use Nikwax TX. Direct for breathable clothing, Nikwax tent & gear Solar Proof for equipment, or Nikwax cotton proof for cotton, poly cotton, and canvas.
Directions for Use – TX. Direct Wash-In
For best results, remove all non-washable parts and always clean item(s) first with Nikwax tech wash in a separate wash cycle. No need to dry items before waterproofing. Remove all detergent build-up from the detergent dispenser. Place a maximum of 2 clean garments in the washing machine. Use 100ml per garment. Run a 30°C synthetic cycle and slow spin. Do not machine-wash garments if taped seams have become dislodged. To maintain waterproofing, always wash with Nikwax tech wash. Do not use detergents. Faulty taped seams sometimes become detached on old or worn garments. They can be re-stuck using a proprietary clear glue after waterproofing and drying. When washing by hand, use gloves (to avoid waterproofing your hands!). Immerse 1 clean garment in 6L of hand-hot water in a bowl or sink. Add 50ml of TX. Direct. Agitate to mix, leave to soak for 5-10 minutes, then agitate thoroughly. Rinse with cold water until the water runs clear.
