Nikwax BaseFresh
If you're involved in outdoor activities or sports of any kind, you're likely to have used technical underwear or wicking clothing designed to keep you cool. However, using conventional household detergents or fabric softeners can impair wicking properties by causing the fabric to retain moisture. Over time, a build up of bacteria and body oils, especially in synthetic base layers, can lead to them smelling. If using conventional detergents or fabric conditioners, odors will not be adequately removed. Instead, they are masked by perfumes which fail quickly, leaving you with smelly base layers! Nikwax BaseFresh effectively deodorizes, inhibits body odor, accelerates drying and improves wicking of all base layers, allowing you to perform at your best.

BaseFresh is the deodorizing conditioner for technical underwear, wicking clothing and base layers that:
  • Prevents odor build up when in use
  • Enhances the wicking properties of base layers and everyday clothing
  • Is easy to use in your washing machine at home: use instead of fabric softener
  • Allows base layers to be cleaned with standard laundry with no need for separate wash
  • Works with your household detergent to remove stubborn stains
  • Safe for you and the environment: WaterBased, biodegradable, free of all fluorocarbons (PFCs), non-flammable and does not use aerosols

  • Test your knowledge on our WebQuiz and if you answer all 10 simple questions correctly, a FREE 50ml sachet of Nikwax BaseFresh will be on its way to you.
