What is NIKWAX

NIKWAX is a liquid which give a clothing or bag the power of water repelency.

NIKWAX is cheap and excellent.

There are two types NIKWAX for giving water repellency. 

NIKWAX TECH WASH

TECH WASH remove strongly small dirts on a clothes.

In fact,powder detergent or soap scum remain on clothes after rinsing.

They reduce the power of water repellency on fishing clothes.

NIKWAX TECH WASH remove them strongly.

 

NIKWAX TX.DIRECT WASH-IN

DIRECT WASH-IN give water repellency to clothes, knit cap,bag,gloves,scocks etc..

In the past,I use only DIRECT WASH-IN and failed to give the power of water repellency.

To give water repellency,You must use both NIKWAX.

How to use NIKWAX and its effect

Official treatment is that

set washing machine volume of water setting on 20ℓ.

TECH WASH 300㎖ and clothes put into washing machine.

Then do the laundry as usual.

After finishing the first laundry,put DIRECT WASH-IN 300㎖ into washing machine.

Then do the laundry as usual.

Hang washing out to dry.

 

By this treatment,I have a gut feeling that the power of water repellency maintain one or two year.

But by this treatment,You must use massive NIKWAX and cost alot.

 

So,I introduce my original way to use NIKWAX and giving the power of water repellency.
