Nikwax Down Wash Direct (1 litre)
Nikwax, the global leader in outdoor aftercare, is excited to introduce Down Wash Direct®, the first aftercare product specifically designed to clean and maximise the performance of both regular untreated down and treated hydrophobic down.
Down is a highly effective insulator, but quickly loses its insulation powers when saturated with water. Water-resistant down fills, such as Nikwax Hydrophobic Down (NHD) technology, address this issue. Nikwax has developed the innovative Down Wash Direct to serve the expanding offering of treated, water-resistant down products.
With repeated use, dirt, oil, and other contaminants diminish the water-repellency of treated down and so to restore performance it requires special care. Down Wash Direct ensures optimal results by cleaning effectively, revitalising insulation, and restoring the water-repellency of hydrophobic down clothing and sleeping bags.
It also improves the water-repellency of regular down, with tests revealing untreated down absorbs almost 40 times less water after just one wash in Down Wash Direct. Additionally, it ensures the water-repellency of the down item's outer fabric is maintained or even improved.
Like all Nikwax products, Down Wash Direct is PFC-free and water-based for the lowest environmental impact. In addition, Nikwax only works with down processors that are committed to ethical sourcing.
