  • If your down items are relatively new, or have been recently treated with Nikwax Down Proof™, then cleaning with Nikwax Down Wash Direct will not only remove contaminants, such as dirt and residues left behind by household detergents, but also revitalize insulation and restore DWR.
  • However, once the gear has been thoroughly used, you will need to add DWR, using Nikwax Down Proof™, after cleaning first with Nikwax Down Wash Direct.
  • This will add DWR to the outer fabric of the gear and also the down fill.

  • Sleeping bags and very large jackets are best hand washed in a bath or equivalent and then spin dried in a washing machine.
  • Use neat Down Wash Direct to treat stubborn stains before washing. Remove all non-washable parts. Shake well before use.
  • Follow care label instructions. Do not use conventional detergents.

  • Machine Wash (for down clothing only):
  • Use a front-loading washing machine only.
  • Remove all detergent build-up from the detergent dispenser.
  • Place maximum 2 items in washing machine.
  • Add 100 ml.
  • Wash according to care label, preferably on low setting and slow spin.
  • After the washing cycle has finished run multiple spin cycles, each time incrementally increasing the spin speed, to remove excess water.
  • Leave footwear to dry at room temperature.
  • Paper can be stuffed into the toes to absorb excess moisture, this should be replaced when wet.
  • Keep footwear away from fires and radiators, drying too quickly can crack leather and cause bonded soles to peel.
  • (Hand wash sleeping bags or wash in a professional machine).
