APPAREL AFTERCARE GUIDE
How to clean, waterproof, condition and protect your outdoor clothing, footwear and equipment.
WHY DO I NEED NIKWAX AFTERCARE?
Using Nikwax after products will help your gear perform better for longer, to keep you warm, dry, comfortable and save you money.
Most water proofing gear has a coating on the outside called DWR finish (Durable Water Repellent). When this DWR finish is functioning correctly, it allows moisture vapour to escape, whilst preventing water from entering.
Over time dirt, body oils etc can degrade the DWR causing your gear to 'wet out'. Cleaning with normal household detergents leaves behind water attracting residues that can impair the DWR on your waterproofing gear.
The DWR and breathability of your waterproofing gear can be restored by cleaning and waterproofing with Nikwax award-winning aftercare range.
|GREEN FOR CLEANING: Cleaning your gear with the appropriate product is highly important so you can maintain the DWR whilst safely removing dirt.||PURPLE FOR PROOFING: Nikwax waterproofing products add DWR and revive breathability. They last for several washes and do not need to be replied every time you wash with Nikwax cleaner.NI|
