Washing and Proofing Products
Washing and Proofing Products from BCH Camping UK. We have a range of waterproofing and washing products from brands such as Nikwax, Storm, fabsil and more. For washing waterproof jackets and waterproof overtrousers we have Nikwax Tech Wash and Storm Proof. Both of these are wash in cleaning products that you can either hand wash or use in a washing machine. Both are non detergent soaps which will clean your waterproofs but will not damage them in anyway or reduce thier waterproof qualities. Normal household detergents attack the waterproof membrane and will strip the garment of their waterproof qualities. If you do nothing else, do not wash your waterproofs in detergents, you will ruin them! Try not to wash more than two garments at a time and use aprox two capfuls per garment. It maybe an idea that everytime you wash your waterproofs that you should waterproof them again afterwards, if for no other reason then to keep the proofing topped up. You can do this with Nikwax TX Direct or Storm wash in proofer. You can use these the same way as the wash ie in the washing machine or hand wash, one to two cap fulls per garment and max of two items at any time. A top tip for washing and reproofing your waterproofs is to clean and empty the detergent tray before hand. All washing instructions are printed on the bottles, but should you need any more information regarding washing or reproofing then please call 01249 661501 or why not call into one of our three great stores in Trowbridge, Chippenham or Bath.
