Nikwax TX. Direct Wash In Waterproofer 5 Litre £28.00 @ Amazon. Had this on my wishlist for some time and according to camelcamelcamel this is the cheapest price it has ever been for this size. Although it is a bit of a specialist item this is for anyone that has waterproof clothing (e.g. Goretex, skiwear etc) and needs to re-proof it.

How Nikwax TX.Direct® Wash-In protects
Nikwax TX.Direct® Wash-In is the market leader. It is easy and quick to apply in a washing machine, and its highly Durable Water Repellency (DWR) develops on air drying. The washing machine application ensures that the treatment goes right through the garment, treating seams, tapes and cords, as well as the fabric. Also, as the need for tumble drying is removed, this saves energy and protects more vulnerable, older, garments from heat. Nikwax TX.Direct® Wash-In has been specifically designed and optimised for breathable waterproof garments; it leaves a flexible water repellent treatment on individual fibres allowing moisture vapour to pass through, maintaining breathability.
Use Nikwax TX.Direct® Wash-In in a washing machine:
For best results remove all non-washable parts and always clean item(s) first with Nikwax Tech Wash® in a separate wash cycle. No need to dry item(s) before waterproofing.
- Remove all detergent build up from the detergent dispenser- Place maximum of 2 clean garments in washing machine- Use 100ml per garment- Run 30°C synthetic cycle and slow spin
Do not machine-wash garments if taped seams have become dislodged.*
To maintain waterproofing always wash with Nikwax Tech Wash®. Do not use detergents.
NOTE: They do also have 25litres available at £122.38 which works out at £24.48 for 5 litres but 25 litres does seem a bit of an excessive size unless of course you are re-proofing an awful lot of clothes!!
