This is not really a waterproofing wash. It is actually a gentle washing agent meant for high performance outdoor clothing to help restore and sustain the original waterproof/breathability aspects. In that it does a good job. A little goes a long way, too. If you need to restore/improve water re...

The headline for this product is very misleading as it states "Wash-In Waterproofing". It only cleans garments prior to using a separate waterproofing soak-in solution before the final rinse. It does treat garments that were originally waterproofed very gently and does maintain their breathability without totally stripping the waterproofing. On the other hand it does not remove dirt and stains quite as well as a stronger detergent, so do not wait until the garment is very dirty to launder it or you will be disappointed and may be faced with adding the additional waterproofing wax based soaking agent which will then basically seal in the remaining dirt and stains that would not come out. This a good choice to use on lightly soiled items in between a re-waterproofing cycle, but it is NOT a water-proofer by itself. It is also a good choice to use on items that are not coated with a waterproofing agent but have a permanent barrier sewn into the garment instead.
it didn't work very well on water proof pants that were originally waterproof and lost some of their efficiency over the years, so i highly doubt it would work on regular cotton. sorry:( it only "revitalizes" but not if the fabric is long gone:)
thanks for asking

That is really disappointing! I have not used my jacket in harsh weather so I cannot really say anything about it, yet. I will say that I followed the directions on the container.

There's a lot to consider, age of jacket, detergent used to wash with etc. Generally there are multiple layers that make your jacket waterproof. The first is the outer layer that is designed to repel water by acting somewhat like peach fuzz, when you first put a peach in or under running water you'll notice that the water just runs off, the same thing is what's happening with your jacket. What happens with time is that the fuzzy part of that layer gets dirty and gummed up with stuff that instead of allowing the water to run off absorbs the water and holds it. After you wash the jacket ideally it clears the fuzz of all that dirt but sometimes the detergent takes its place and that is what Tech Wash is meant for, to clear out the detergents. Depending on your jacket the fuzz could be cleared out but still matted down instead of standing up repelling water. So, depending on your jacket you may be able to steam iron it, yes, steam iron it. Your jacket may show this on the inside label or on the care instructions on the manufacturer's website. What the steam iron does is perk the fuzz back up to a standing position and making it repel water again. !!! IF YOU IRON YOUR JACKET KEEP THE IRON MOVING AND DO NOT ALLOW IT TO SIT IN ONE PLACE!!! Failing to keep the iron moving will result in a melted jacket! Now, if you're still not satisfied with with the results you can watch with TX Direct, this is purely a waterproofing treatment and I highly recommend it. Good luck!

Yes, and I suggest you wash anything you own that's waterproof to be washed in a front-loader. Top-loaders use an agitator to move the clothes and water around. Sometimes, bigger articles of clothing can get twisted up in it and get torn or stretched. Waterproof clothes don't like being stretched.

This will work well to prep, clean and help restore your already waterproof dry top. If you want a little extra you can do a second wash or spray with NikWax TX direct.|One bottle can do 2-3 washings of 3-5 garments. It has the instructions on the bottle for the quantity to use with items being washed. Enjoy!
