  • “The product is offered in blue or green color. Does this mean that they are for that color of a garment? Or is this to differentiate product. Can I use these on any color of clothing? ”

    • The blue one (actually it's purple ) is wash - in waterproofing for any type of wet weather fabrics (such as Gortex...)
      Whereas the green one is a wash-in cleaner for down filled items (it helps to restore insulation & water repellency.)

    • Yes. You can use this product on ANY COLOR of clothing. I put many colors in the washer @ the same time with color catchers, being mindful of darks with darks of course. This is the best product I've ever used. And I've tried them all. It is for cleaning water proof type clothing w/o breaking down waterproofing properties. It resets it is the best way I can describe it. Dryer is essential too. Color of cap defines different product. I am very fond of TX Direct. Have also used Polar Wash & Tech Wash. Read the product descriptions carefully. Each has a different application. All are not for waterproofing. Hope that helps!

    • Just labeling, as far as I can figure out. I think TX is blue, Nikwax for washing is green. That's as much as I can recall without running down to my washing machine! I love these products.

  • “Can this be used to re-waterproof the fly for my Kelty tent? If not, what NikWax would you recommend?”
    Asked by Colby from Vermont on 8/13/2013 1:37:17 PM
    • I would not recommend this. You would want Nikwax Tent and gear Solar Proof Spray-on waterproofing and UV blocker for all weatherproof textiles including tents, awnings, marquees, rucksacks, panniers and camera bags. Item #5214U.

  • “Can this be used just in a sink or wash tube, without the washing machine. If so, where do I find the directions.”
    Asked by JR from Indiana on 7/31/2013 8:57:17 PM
    • You would just follow the instructions like you were going to put it into a washer.

  • “Would this product be good for horse turnout blankets?”
    Asked by Nancy from Franklin, TN on 11/6/2012 12:00:00 AM
    • If the turnout blanket is made of a synthetic fabric such as nylon or polyester it could work since this is the fabrics used with most waterproof outerwear.
