How do I use Nikwax for my outdoor items?

For clothing, pour Nikwax in the dispenser of your washing machine and set to a normal wash cycle. Alternatively, wash by hand in a basin or use our non-aerosol spray-on treatments – it really is that easy. For footwear, our sponge-on and spray-on products are easy to use for fast, effective, long-lasting wet weather protection. For equipment such as tents, Nikwax can be used as a spray, sponge or brush-on treatment.

Why clean with Nikwax?

Nikwax cleaning products safely lift out dirt and refresh breathability. Conventional detergents can seriously damage water-repellency, breathability and wicking properties.
