Introduction

In general, waterproof, water repellent and windproof performance apparel (Sympatex, Ceplex and Windproof products) should be washed as rarely as possible and as often as necessary. Please follow the instructions on the product’s care label. Only use liquid detergent for fine wash or for functional clothing. Even better is functional detergent like Nikwax Tech Wash.

Fill the washing machine. For optimal results you should wash similar colors together and turn the items inside out before washing.

  • Please always close buttons, zippers and Velcro closures before washing. This keeps fibers from catching and the clothing from stretching out during the wash cycle.

Set the washing machine to the cycle and temperature recommended on the apparel. In our example it’s 30 °C and a gentle cycle. Put the correct amount of liquid in the dispenser depending on the hardness of your water. You can find out how much you should use by reading the instructions on the care product. Do not use fabric softener or bleach!

For optimal reactivation of the waterproofing (DWR), put the clothing into the dryer for 30 to 50 minutes after washing. Alternatively, you can air dry the clothing in a warm and dry place, however, the waterproofing will not be reactivated.

If the waterproofing has been reduced with time, you can treat your jacket with a spray-on waterproofing. We recommend the spray on product from Nikwax for softshell products.
