Excellent about to give up on old jacket until I used this wash now suitable for a longer use.



Stinky boots are no more !!
Reviewed By David, 24 Oct 2013

My son borrowed my Meindel boots for his D of E, when they came back both were soaking wet and muddy. After a few days drying they (the boots) were starting to smell horrible and it was getting worse. Went to Cotswold and bought some tech-wash, decided to fully dunk my boots in a bucket of warm tech washy water rinsed them out two or three times and now they are clean and smell nice and fresh. Not tried it on a jacket but it cleaned my boots up nicely.



Couldn't believe my eyes!
Reviewed By Rob, 26 Jun 2013

I've used Nikwax Tech Wash for years and always found it excellent. You want the best for your quality gear - Tech Wash ensures this and gives the gear even greater longevity. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this product at half price today at the Bridgemere shop - bought it and added some footwear cleaning gel - never used this before but if it's half as good as the Tech Wash I,ve got another bargain.



Good results
Reviewed By Jackie, 14 Apr 2013

I have used this numerous times on waterproof jackets and trousers and have been happy with the results. I always as instructed remove any washing powder residue from the machine before use and items have retain their water repellency.

Reviewed By matthew, 23 Aug 2011

This product has been unfairly given a 1 star review because another reviwer failed to read the bottle.

Nikwax Tech Wash is not a reproofer. It is a safe cleaner for cleaning waterproof items. It is safe because it will PRESERVE any existing waterproofing treatment (that which causes water to bead) and will also clean any waterproof membrane such as eVent or Gore-Tex returning to their original breathability, as ordinary detergents will destroy the treatment.

If you have a jacket that has had it's DWR (Durable Water Repellency) diminished then you MUST used a secondary product after first washing with Tech Wash to restore that water repellency, of which Nikwax and Granger's produce several.

It is wholly unfair and innacurate to rate this product 1 star.



Didn't work for me
Reviewed By , 23 Jun 2011

I followed the instructions on the bottle religiously and it didn't work for my two jackets (Berghaus / TheNorthFace). Very little or no water beading present at all.

I don't know if it was my washing machine or not.

Looking to buy a spray on product instead.
