Customer reviews

Basically the only worthwhile product for washing technical outdoor kit, I.e. any waterproofs or rucksacks. Detergents will obliterate any waterproof properties of the fabric, so don't use them. Paired with the right proofer to regenerate the waterproof properties (Nikwax TX washin or spray, depending) it's great.

Just what I need! Allows me to wash my gloves and rucksack without having to worry about wearing out the water resistant coating.
