Down Wash Direct
The new Nikwax Down Wash Direct has been designed to wash both normal untreated down and hydrophobic down jackets that are now popular among all well known outdoor brands such as Berghaus Hydrodown.
Repeated wear of your down jacket will attract dirt and oil and this will diminish the water repellency of your treated down so by washing in Nikwax Down Wash Direct the garment will be cleaned but its performance will also be restored.
This Nikwax wash will treat sleeping bags and jackets but very large garments and sleeping bags should be hand washed in a bath and then spun dry in a washing machine. Use neat Down Wash Direct to treat any stubborn stains before washing and make sure you remove all non washable parts.
Machine wash use:
- Remove all detergent from the detergent dispenser.
- Place a max of 2 items in the machine
- Add 100ml
- Wash according to the garments care label. If in doubt wash on a low setting and low spin
- After the main cycle has completed run several spin cycles (each time incrementally increasing the spin speed) to remove all excess water
- Using gloves add 100ml to 12 -15 litres of hand hot water
- Immerse the item and mix to allow for complete wetting
- Leave to soak for up to 10 minutes and mix again
- Rinse until water runs clear
- To remove excess water transfer the item to a washing machine and run several spin cycles, again, incrementally increasing the spin speed, to remove excess water.
Thoroughly dry your down garment by tumble drying (if your garment allows this) and avoid leaving down wet as it can be ruined permanently. Dry on a low setting until clumps have disappeared, consider using a tennis ball to puff the garment. Always air the garment before packing away.
