Nikwax Down Wash Direct
Care for Hydrophobic Down
Down Wash Direct™ is the first aftercare product specifically designed to clean and maximise the performance of both regular untreated down and treated hydrophobic down. Dirt, oil, and other containments lead to the water-repellency diminishing over time. Down Wash Direct ensures optimal performance by cleaning effectively, revitalising insulation, and restoring the water-repellency of water-resistant down apparel and sleeping bags. Down Wash Direct also improves the water-repellency of regular down - tests show untreated down absorbs almost 40 times less water after just one wash in Down Wash Direct.
The biodegradable down care product Down Wash Direct by Nikwax, which also restores water repellency, has been awarded an OutDoor Industry Award. The judges commended the sustainable nature of the product, which also improves the functionality of older down. As such, it extends the lifespan of existing down products.
