Nikwax Down Wash Direct is the only technical cleaner specifically designed for hydrophobic and regular down which cleans effectively, while restoring water repellency and maintaining fill power and insulation.
It effectively removes body oils and dirt from both the fabric and the down fill, whilst restoring any Durable Water Repellency (DWR) of both the outer fabric and the down. This protects against rain and condensation, preventing the item from wetting out and maintaining the natural insulating properties of down.
Additionally it revives breathability, allowing moisture vapour to pass through the item, optimising performance in cold and damp conditions, and also prolonging the effective life of your down gear.
It is the safe way to thoroughly clean your down clothing and equipment, and by using a washing machine it's quick, easy, and ensures that the whole item is thoroughly cleaned.
