I’m unclear on the specifics or technicalities of the wash cycles because Mrs Art did all the graft
Jacket and gloves
First wash on a low temperature cycle as per jacket manufacturers instructionsCold rinse rinse cycleSecond washed using 150 ml of Nikwax Tech Wash as per Nikwax instructionsThird wash using 150 ml of Nikwax TX.Direct as per Nikwax instructions
Gloves - Worked like magic
Jacket - When it starts to rain the water beads up and rolls off, after about 3 hours of riding in heavy rain the water started to soak in, not right through just into the outer shell.
Which is all good news as before the Nikwax treatments the gloves and jacket simple soaked up the water at the first sign of rain without any beading and within an hour the water would have wicked right through.
It’s no longer available. And do not use any kind of detergent, nor conditioner, clean the compartment drawer of any washing powder/tablet residue and use the detergent from the green bottle on a 30 oC cycle and once it’s finished add the waterproofer wash-in and put on a 30oC cycle again.
