Nikwax Down Wash.Direct® 1L.

Nikwax Down Wash.Direct® is a speciality cleaner which has been designed to revitalise the water repellency and insulating properties of down filled gear.

Down Wash.Direct® is a technical cleaner which can be used on both hydrophobic down and regular down. It is an effective cleaner that also restores water repellency and revitalises insulation, keeping you warmer and drier for longer.

It is easy to use in your 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 Hydrophobic Down™, Hydrodown™ and all other down clothing and sleeping bags.

How To Use:

  • Use neat Nikwax Down Wash Direct to treat stubborn stains before washing. Remove all non-washable parts. Shake well before use. Follow care label instructions. Do not use conventional detergents.
  • Machine wash the down clothing only.
  • Remove all detergent build-up from the detergent dispenser.
  • Place maximum 2 items in washing machine.
  • Add 100 ml.
  • Wash according to care label, preferably on a low setting and slow spin.
  • 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.

Sleeping bags and very large jackets are best hand washed in a bath or equivalent and then spin dried in a washing machine.

How To Use If Handwashing:

  • Use neat Nikwax Down Wash Direct to treat stubborn stains before washing. Remove all non-washable parts. Shake well before use. Follow care label instructions. Do not use conventional detergents.
  • Use gloves.
  • Add 100 ml to 12-15 L of hand-hot water.
  • Immerse item and agitate to mix, ensuring complete wetting.
  • Leave to soak for 5-10 minutes, then agitate thoroughly.
  • Rinse thoroughly until water runs clear.
  • 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.
  • By handMake sure to thoroughly dry your down filled gear.

How To Dry:

  • If you intend to re-waterproof the washed item there is no need to dry it first.
  • 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.
  • 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.
