If you've invested in skiing gear, then you want to maintain it in top condition for years to come. Regular exposure to snow and ice can wear down the fabric, shortening its useful lifespan and leaving it looking dull and worn-out.

Luckily, there are products on the market that preserve ski-wear and keep it looking newer for longer. Nikwax tech-wash is the safe and smart choice because it is not a detergent; it will remove detergent residue, dirt, and oils and will not leave behind nasty residue. Washing your gear will also help revive the existing durable water repellency finish, and will help maintain breathability so the evaporated sweat can escape.

Also available is Nikwax TX.Direct. It is easy and quick to apply in a washing machine, and its highly Durable Water Repellency (DWR) develops on air drying. The washing machine application ensures that the treatment goes right through the garment, treating seams, tapes and cords, as well as the fabric. Also, as the need for tumble drying is removed, this saves energy and protects more vulnerable, older, garments from heat. Nikwax TX.Direct® Wash-In has been specifically designed and optimised for breathable waterproof garments; it leaves a flexible water repellent treatment on individual fibres allowing moisture vapour to pass through, maintaining breathability.

We stock these high-quality waterproofing products in 3 sizes, and they are available in twin packs. If you have any questions about waterproofing your outdoor gear, then feel free to pop into our Heswall store to have a chat and look at our range.
