    Default NIKWAX Products

    Hi everyone

    Was just wondering if anyone has used any of the NIKWAX products for clothing and shoes, and if so, what are your thoughts on them.

    Thanks

    I've got some Nikwax, but never used it. I ended up using Grangers, which was recommended by the manufacturer of the first item I used it on. I kept using it after that. I'm assuming this is for waterproofing / cleaning.

    I'm sure they do samples, try get one and see how it works.

    Used the suede nikwax on my timbalands when I went skiing last year. Worked perfectly.

    A good product and only around R80 if I recall

    Used the base layer and the techniwax (think thats what it was called) the base layer is apparently for under garments and shirts that have wicking properties. The Techniwax was for jackets, rain suits and soft shells and tents etc.

    I find it works ok, for around R99 a bottle you cant ask for miracles.

    My North face and Kway quick dry shorts get a light hand wash with a mild detergent then a quick machine wash with the Nikwax and they're good as new.
    I've found the Nikwax stain/dirt rermoval properties to be a little less than sometimes required hence the detergent wash before hand.

    Some wicking fabric manufacturers promote the use of gentle tumble drying to restore moisture wicking ability, just a useless bit of info I read somewhere recently.
