Wash & Care
Can I wash my waterproof coat?
Yes, of course. Please wash as per the recommended washing instructions using a non-bio washing soap or a specialist washing liquid for waterproof clothing such as Nikwax Tech Wash. Do not use biological soap, as this can damage the performance. We recommend the following:
- Wash on a mild 40 degree wash
- Tumble dry on a low heat
- Do not dry clean
- Do not use fabric softeners
Will washing my coat more than once affect its waterproof performance?
The more you wash your coat the more it will affect the performance, so only wash when needed. Re-waterproofing any waterproof garment is essential over time. If you notice the DWR beginning to fail (when water no longer beads up on the face of the fabric), you can re-waterproof your coat quite easily at home. To re-waterproof your coat, we recommend you use a specialist product such as Nikwax TX Direct.
