When to use Nikwax® TX.Direct Wash-In:

After cleaning and re-proofing clothing, maintain its waterproofing qualities by frequent cleaning with Nikwax® Tech Wash. After 6 to 8 washes with Nikwax® Tech Wash, re-apply Nikwax® TX.Direct Wash-In to re-proof.

Remember you don’t have to wait to dry between cleaning and re-proofing.


For best results remove all non-washable parts and always clean item(s) first with Nikwax® Tech Wash in a separate wash cycle. No need to dry item(s) before waterproofing. Shake well before use. Follow care label instructions.

Machine wash:
  1. Remove all detergent build-up from the detergent dispenser
  2. Place maximum of 2 clean garments in washing machine
  3. Use 2 full caps (100ml) per garment
  4. Run 30° synthetic cycle and slow spin
Do not machine wash garments if taped seams have become dislodged*.

Hand wash (use gloves):
  1. Immerse 1 clean garment in 6L of hand-hot water in a bowl or sink
  2. Add 1 full cap (50 ml) of Nikwax® TX.Direct
  3. Agitate to mix, leave to soak for 5-10 minutes, then agitate thoroughly
  4. Rinse with cold water until water runs clear
Drying:
Air dry or tumble dry on a low setting if care label allows. To maintain waterproofing always wash with Nikwax® Tech Wash. Do not use detergents.

*Faulty taped seams sometimes become detached on old or worn garments. They can be re-stuck using a proprietary clear glue after waterproofing and drying.
