Fifty Sense Seal of Approval Down Proof

We all have our favorite down pieces that we would hate to have to let go. The best way to hold onto these articles to take care of them right from the beginning. The down proof wash by Nikwax is designed exactly with this is mind.

It adds / renews water repellency and revives breathability. It prolongs the life of gear and optimizes the performance in wet weather, while minimizing weight gain.

It is safe to use on all feather and down garments and equipment and is water based so it is environmentally friendly, biodegradable, non flammable and non hazardous!

It really doesn’t get any easier to use- it can be used right in a washing machine but is equally efficient as a hand wash.

Down Wash

I have always been reluctant to use a cleaner on my down clothes but I can assure you that the down wash by Nikwax not only cleanses, but actually improves the quality of your clothing and equipment!

As a cleanser, it lifts out dirt that can attract water and mask water repellent finishes. Unlike detergents, it does not leave behind water attractive residues which encourage ‘wetting out’. It will also remove detergent residues left behind by previous washes.

In addition to being a cleanser it revitalizes loft and insulation, without damaging the structure of the down.

So easy to use- just add it right to your washing machine!

Since this product is water based it is environmentally friendly, non biodegradable, non flammable and non hazardous. It does not contain fluorocarbons.

I was so impressed by this product that after washing one piece I started hunting down all my down to uplift!
