Wash-in cleaner for waterproof clothing and equipment that safely revitalises breathability and water-repellency.

Nikwax® Tech Wash is a non-detergent soap which can be used regularly to clean clothing and equipment without damaging the DWR (durable water repellent) coatings. Use Nikwax® Tech Wash instead of detergents or washing powder.

Benefits of using Nikwax® Tech Wash:

  • Prolongs the life of gear and optimises outdoor performance
  • Maintains breathability
  • Maintains original water-repellency
  • Easy-to-apply - can be used in a washing machine
  • Suitable for use on all fabrics, including technical textiles
  • Lifts out dirt that can attract water and mask water repellent finishes
  • Unlike detergents, it does not leave behind water attractive residues which encourage ‘wetting-out’
  • Removes detergent residues left behind by previous washes
  • Water-based - environmentally friendly, biodegradable, non-flammable, non-hazardous
  • Does not contain fluorocarbons
Ideal for:
  • All clothing including high activity / technically advanced garments.
  • Ideal cleaner to clean nylon and synthetic tents, rucksacks, awnings, marquees, fabric accessories and camera bags, etc.
When to use Nikwax® Tech Wash:
Clean items with Nikwax® Tech Wash before proofing them with the appropriate Nikwax® proofer. You should be able to wash reproofed gear 6 to 8 times with Nikwax® Tech Wash before it requires reproofing with the appropriate Nikwax® proofer.


Use neat Nikwax® Tech Wash and a sponge or soft nylon brush to treat stubborn stains before washing. Remove all non-washable parts. Shake well before use. Follow care label instructions. Do not use detergents.
