Detergent for all waterproof gear. Designed to revive water repellency and breathability – easy to use in the washing machine or by hand. Also suitable for synthetic sleeping bags.

With this product, you can clean your gear without compromising its water repellent properties. Recommended fabrics include Gore-Tex®, Windstopper®, and other waterproof, windproof, and fleece materials and equipment. If needed, after washing, you can apply a new DWR treatment to your garment with a suitable product. Volume 300 ml / 10.1 fl. oz.

Breathability Depends on Water Repellency

Breathable waterproof garments are most likely to become moist inside when used for an extended time in wet conditions. If the outer shell absorbs a lot of water, the garment can lose up to 70% of its breathability. Therefore, maintaining durable water repellency (DWR) in the outer fabric of the garment is essential to ensure its functionality. DWR treatments wear off over time and need to be renewed with suitable products.

Waterproof fabrics must allow moisture vapor to pass through, or breathe, otherwise, sweat cannot evaporate, leading to moisture. If the outer fabric absorbs water and becomes wet, breathability is reduced.

Usage

In case of tough stains, apply Tech Wash® directly and use a sponge or soft nylon brush to treat the stains before washing. Remove all non-washable parts. Shake the bottle well before use. Follow the care label instructions, and avoid using regular detergents.

In the Washing Machine

  • Remove all detergent residue from the washing machine detergent compartment
  • Place up to 2 clean garments in the washing machine
  • Use 150 ml / 5 fl. oz. in medium/hard water* areas and 100 ml / 3.5 fl. oz. in soft water areas for washing 1-2 items
  • Wash according to the care label instructions

* If, for example, your water kettle gets calcium build-up, you have hard water. In extremely hard water, use 200 ml / 7 fl. oz. per wash.

By Hand

The washing can also be done by hand. Use gloves.

  • Immerse 1-2 garments in 6 liters of lukewarm water in a bucket or sink
  • Use 150 ml / 5 fl. oz. in medium/hard water areas and 100 ml / 3.5 fl. oz. in soft water areas for washing 1-2 items
  • Wash the garment by hand as usual
  • Rinse three times in clean water
  • Air dry or tumble dry on a low setting if the laundry tag allows for such things
