This is really good down cleaner. It leaves things smelling clean and definitely plumps them back up.

  • “How much would I need for a down sleeping bag (0 degree 800 fill, Long size). What is the proper sequence - would I wash with this and then wash with the "Down proof"? I have a MH bag with a 20D DWR shell and I want to improve it's water resistance. The down inside is not the newer hydrophobic down. Thanks”
    Asked by Robert from Boston on 1/18/2015 11:16:14 AM
    • Sorry, can only answer part of your question. The directions call for a commercial front-loading washer. My HE front-loader at home worked well. I'm guessing your 800 fill, long size bag is approximately two pounds, fairly standard weight. Check your label. If so you would need to use 3 oz. which is about two caps using the cap on the bottle. Or, for whatever reason, you could measure out 6 tablespoons.

      If your washer is not an HE washer, amount would be the same for one bag. The bottle has increased amounts according to the weight/number of items in the load e.g., up to 5 oz. for 4.8lb.-5lb. 8oz.- possibly Nikwax reason for recommending a commercial front-loading washer. Call them 1-800-563-3057 if you have a top-loading machine and this concerns you. They could answer your other questions as well.

      Regardless the weight or number of items, I would absolutely not use more than three oz. in an HE home washer. Have done different weights using the same amount, all have come out beautifully.

  • “What nikwax products can be used in HE washers?”
    Asked by Coppertop from Wisconsin on 2/7/2012 12:00:00 AM
    • I believe all Nikwak products can be used in High Efficiency washers, I would recommend however using 1 cap full less than the directions suggest.

    • I see no reason why all Nikwax products cannot be used in HE washers. One caution for Down Wash- directions are given for different item numbers/weights and the increased incremental amounts of Down Wash to use. Regardless the weight or number of items, I would absolutely not use more than three oz. in an HE home washer. Have done different item numbers/weights using this same amount, all have come out beautifully.
