Maintaining your membrane clothing enhances the performance of your gear, keeping you warmer and drier. Recommended fabrics for this product include Gore-Tex®, Sympatex®, and other such waterproof materials.

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.

Usage

Remove all non-washable parts and clean the garment first in a separate wash using a detergent suitable for membrane clothing, such as Nikwax Tech Wash. Follow the care label instructions for washing. The garment does not need to be dried before waterproofing.

In the Washing Machine

  • Shake the bottle well before use
  • Remove all detergent residue from the washing machine detergent compartment
  • Place a maximum of 2 clean garments in the washing machine
  • Use 100 ml / 3.4 fl. oz. of the product per garment
  • Run a 30°C synthetic cycle with a slow spin
  • Do not machine-wash garments if taped seams have become damaged*
  • To maintain waterproofing, always wash with a detergent suitable for membrane clothing – do not use regular detergents

*Faulty taped seams can sometimes detach from old or worn garments. They can be reattached using appropriate products after waterproofing and drying.

By Hand

Nikwax TX.Direct® Wash-In can be applied by hand. Use gloves.

  • Immerse 1 clean garment in 6 liters of hand-warm water in a bucket or sink
  • Add 50 ml / 1.7 fl- oz. 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
  • Nikwax TX.Direct® treated clothing does not need any heat treatment to develop durable water repellency (DWR)
  • Air dry or tumble dry on a low setting if the laundry tag allows for such things

18.12.2023 ⚠ Unverified purchase
Used this product on a Northbend DWR jacket that had started to get soaked. Completely restores water repellency if you follow proper procedure - either use the techwash, or, if using regular detergent, do a double or triple wash to get the detergent out of the pores. Also used the Nikwax Polycotton/cotton treatment to waterproof the Sarma M59 fishtail parka, worked great. Some good products.
