For any outdoor gear: biking, cycling , walking, running, etc. Great price from SBS as usual. Much cheaper to buy in this 1L pack.
Good at cleaning

Not cheap but does a good job for a water based cleaner with a few requirements.
I don't know of many others on the market that are like this or certainly could trust which is a shame so i will continue to buy.

Have used this stuff prior to the TX-Direct wash-in many times. Works as promised with my Rukka gear. Great price as well from SBS. Recommended.
Easy to use

Used Nikwax tech wash over the years on numerous items from textile jackets to kevlar denims, very easy to use with good results, would recommend also using the TX Direct spray while the garment is still damp for extra protection.

Nikwax Tech Wash

  • Highly effective cleaning properties
  • Specifically designed and optimised for breathable waterproof fabrics
  • Revitalises existing DWR and revives breathability
  • Application in washing machine is quick, easy and ensures the whole garment is cleaned
  • Removes contaminants left behind by household detergents
  • Environmentally friendly, water-based, non-hazardous and biodegradable

Your waterproof clothing and equipment could be soaking up water because the durable water repellency (DWR) has been compromised by dirt, or because it has been cleaned with a conventional laundry detergent. Dirt attracts water and household detergents leave water attracting (hydrophilic) residues, leading to fabric 'wetting out' in wet or damp conditions. If your waterproof clothing or equipment is relatively new, or recently treated with a Nikwax waterproofer, then cleaning with Nikwax Tech Wash will not only remove contaminants, such as dirt and residues left behind by household detergents, but also revitalise DWR.
