Nikwax Down Proof 1L.

Nikwax Down Proof is a waterproofer specially designed to protect the insulating properties of down-filled gear from wet and damp conditions.

Down Proof will enhance the performance of your down clothing and gear whilst adding water repellency and revitalising insulation keeping you warmer and drier for longer.

It is easy to use in the washing machine or by hand if hand washing. It comes in a 100% recycled bottle and is water based, non-flammable and PFC free.

It is recommended to be used on Nikwax Hydrophobic Down™, Hydrodown and all other down clothing and sleeping bags.

How To Use In A Washing Machine:

  • For best results remove all non-washable parts and clean item(s) first with Nikwax Down Wash.Direct®. Always use Down Wash.Direct® and Down Proof™ in separate wash cycles. No need to dry item(s) before waterproofing. Shake well before use. Follow care label instructions.
  • Remove all detergent build up from the detergent dispenser.
  • Place clean item in washing machine (maximum 1 item).
  • Use 150ml for 1 item.
  • Wash according to care label, preferably on a low setting and slow spin.
  • Spin dry 3 times (slow spin)
  • If care label allows, tumble dry according to manufacturer's instructions on a low setting until 'clumps' have disappeared. Teasing apart clumps repeatedly during drying process will help restore loft to the down.
  • To maintain waterproofing always wash with Nikwax Down Wash.Direct®. Do not use detergents.

How To Use If Hand Washing:

  • For best results always clean item(s) first with Nikwax Down Wash.Direct®. No need to dry item(s) before waterproofing. Shake well before use. Follow care label instructions.
  • Wear gloves.
  • Immerse clean item(s) in hand-hot water.
  • For clothing: Use 150ml for 1 item in a bowl or 300ml for 2 items in a bath. Fully submerge item(s) in water.
  • For sleeping bags: Use 300ml in 4cm deep water in a bath.
  • Agitate to mix, leave to soak for 5-10 minutes, then agitate thoroughly.
  • Rinse clothing in cold water until water runs clear. For sleeping bags repeat rinsing process, drain, and gently press bag to expel water.
  • To remove excess water transfer item(s) to a washing machine and spin dry 3 times (slow spin).
  • If care label allows, tumble dry according to manufacturer's instructions on a low setting until 'clumps' have disappeared. Teasing apart clumps repeatedly during drying process will help restore loft to the down.
  • To maintain waterproofing always wash with Nikwax Down Wash.Direct®. Do not use detergents.

How To Dry:

  • To get the maximum amount of water out of your down it’s best to spin dry multiple times, each time incrementally increasing the speed of the spin cycle. Wet down is heavy, so if items are spun too quickly while still holding a large amount of water it is possible that internal baffles may be broken.
  • Nikwax Down Proof™ treated items need no heat to develop water repellency. However, tumble drying is recommended (if care label allows) to ensure that the down is dried thoroughly and as quickly as possible. Leaving down wet or damp can ruin it completely. Tumble dry according to manufacturer’s instructions on a low setting until clumps have disappeared. Ensure that there is sufficient room in the tumble drier to house the item once dry, as items will return to their original size during the drying process.
  • Teasing apart clumps repeatedly during drying process will help restore loft to the down.
  • After tumble drying it is recommended to air item(s) for at least a day in a warm and dry space, prior to packing away.
