Nikwax Tech Wash®
With regular wear, your wet weather clothing will begin to soak up water and no longer do its job of keeping you dry in the rain. So, to stay warm and protected outdoors it’s important your jacket remains waterproof. Nikwax Tech Wash is the Number 1 high performance cleaner for waterproof clothing and equipment. It revitalises water-repellency and breathability, protecting you from the elements, whatever the weather!

Dirt, sweat and regular household detergents attract water, masking water-repellency. Regular cleaning with Tech Wash will keep the water-repellency working and clothes in tip top condition. Most items will only need fully re-waterproofing with Nikwax TX.Direct about every four washes.

Nikwax Tech Wash:
  • Is specifically designed and optimised for breathable waterproof fabrics
  • Is a highly effective and safe cleaner
  • Helps revitalise water-repellency and breathability
  • Is easy to use in the washing machine at home or can be applied by hand
  • Can be followed with TX.Direct when gear needs fully re-waterproofing
  • Is environmentally friendly – water-based, fluorocarbon (PFC) free, does not contain solvents, and non-flammable

Test your knowledge on our WebQuiz and if you answer all 10 simple questions correctly, a FREE 100ml pouch of Nikwax Tech Wash will be on its way to you.
