Nikwax Cotton Proof is the leading wash-in waterproofing for cotton, polycotton and canvas. Simply use it in your washing machine at home to safely add Durable Water Repellency (DWR) to your favourite clothing and equipment.
Nikwax Cotton Proof is the market leader; it has been specifically designed and optimised for breathable cotton, polycotton and canvas materials, providing DWR whilst maintaining breathability. It leaves a flexible water repellent treatment on individual fibres allowing moisture vapour to pass through, maintaining breathability, prolonging the life of gear and optimising performance in wet weather.
Application in your washing machine ensures that the treatment goes right through each garment. It leaves a flexible water repellent treatment on individual
fibres allowing moisture vapour to pass through, maintaining breathability and optimising performance in cold and damp conditions. The highly Durable Water Repellency of Nikwax Cotton Proof develops on air drying, therefore the need for tumble drying is removed, thus saving energy.
Using the right cleaning product is as important as using the right waterproofing product. Dirt, and the residue left behind by standard household detergents, can attract water to your garments, leading to the fabric 'wetting out' in damp conditions.
