TX DIRECT WASH-IN is Nikwax's #1 waterproofer, easy to use, safe and effective
TX DIRECT WASH-IN comes when our rainwear starts to let water in and gives it back its DWR finish!
The external DWR (Durable Water Repellant) treatment of technical garments, which guarantees their waterproofing, tends to wear off with wear of the garment.
When this happens, the garment starts to feel damp and loses up to 70% of its breathability.
TX DIRECT WASH-IN revitalizes the DWR of the garments by preventing water absorption and thus allows the breathability of technical fabrics such as shells and jackets to be kept intact at the same time.
Garments can lose their waterproofing due to wear or poor maintenance (for example, traditional detergents damage the waterproofing and breathability of technical fabrics due to the hydrophilic residues they release on garments).
If, even after washing with the specific Nikwax Tech Wash detergent, the water repellency does not reassert itself on the garment, then it is time to switch to TX DIRECT WASH-IN
Shells, pants, jackets that have lost their impermeability (to transpiration!), can have a new life thanks to Nikwax products.
Therefore, after having cleaned them with Nikwax Tech Wash® , take your still wet technical garments and re-insert them in the washing machine for treatment with TX DIRECT WASH-IN.
Machine application ensures that the treatment passes through the garment, treating seams, tapes and cords, as well as the fabric.
The highly durable water repellency then develops during its air drying (no tumble dryers!).
Nikwax TX Direct® Wash-In has been specifically designed and optimized for breathable rainwear.
It has a flexible water repellent effect on individual fibers which allows moisture vapor to pass through the fabric, maintaining breathability.
Regularly cleaning and treating technical sportswear with these products will improve their performance over time.
How to use Nikwax TX Direct® Wash-In Waterproofer in the washing machine:
PLEASE NOTE: For best results remove non-washable parts and always clean first with Nikwax Tech Wash® in a separate wash cycle. You can proceed with the waterproofing directly on the still wet garment.
- Remove all detergent residues from the washing machine tub.
- Put the clean clothes in the washing machine (max 2 pieces).
- Use 100ml per head.
- 30° washing cycle with delicate spin
Do not machine wash if the seam taping is frayed.
In the washing machine, it ensures better coverage throughout the garment, including small details around the zips, pocket interiors and mesh linings.
How to use Nikwax TX Direct® Wash-In Waterproofer for hand application:
- Use gloves
- Immerse clean clothing in a basin of warm water.
- Add 50ml of TX.Direct®.
- Shake and leave to rest for 5-10 minutes. Shake again.
- Rinse thoroughly in cold water.
Line dry or tumble dry on low if care label instructions permit.
