        Pros

        • Worked beautifully

        Cons

        • It will spill on you
        • Lid makes a huge mess

        Best Uses

          Comments about NIKWAX Tech Wash:

          Basically, once you use the cap to measure the detergent, and you replace the cap, the residual detergent in the cap has nowhere to go, and thus spills everywhere. It's not like normal laundry detergent where it will funnel back down into the container through the lid.

          So the product worked great, but they could do better with the design of the cap and spout.

          CAN DAMAGE WATERPROOFING ON OLDER GEAR!

              My outdoor store told me I needed to hand wash my tent in this "gentle" soap before re-sealing it, but it dissolved my tent floor's waterproofing to white crumbs and lifted all the factory seam tape! My nice old REI tent that I was trying to make perfect for a friend to borrow is now garbage. BE AWARE that older gear may have silicone-based sealants (?) and SPOT TEST! Filed a product report with Nikwax but they claimed it wasn't their fault, that "time was the enemy." Bogus.

              Comments about NIKWAX Tech Wash:

              I wash all of my snow clothes in Nikwax Techwash and you should, too. You do not want to wash waterproof clothing/gear in regular detergent or fabric softener because those products will degrade the waterproofing. I wash hats, gloves, snowsuit, etc all of it in Techwash. Since I have white gear that really needs to stay clean, I also use a scoop of Oxy Clean in the wash. The combo works well. I wouldn't wash my gear in anything else. The only drawback, if there is one, is that the Techwash only comes in a small bottle. I would like to buy a bigger container.

                Tech Wash works great. A little expensive but, if your going to shell out top dollar for waterproof, breathable products, you might as well spend an extra [$] for this product to keep them working the way they're supposed to.

                    I wish I knew about this product a long time ago. After washing my gore-tex jacket in the regular wash and wrecking the waterproofing, I used this stuff, followed by the spray-on water-proofing. Now it's almost like new. Next time, I will use the wash-in treatment and see how that works.

                    Used on Kokatat Tropos drytop and dysuit. Recommended by nikwax prior to waterproofing treatment. Confirmed with Kokatat that this was OK for Tropos fabric. I had some stains on sleeves near gaskets I think from 303 use. Direct application was done as recommended but stains still remained. The following nikwax treatment went well for the drytop and water beads up well but did not go as well for drysuit. Nikwax customer service was great in replying to my e-mail questions
