Nikwax Tech Wash and TX. Direct Wash Review

Laundry soaps and detergents do not always work. It can be frustrating that these items sometimes can’t clean hard-fibre materials, and worse, they’re also subject to causing major damages to products such as raincoats, jackets, and the like. This has led me to investigate through my friends on ideas on washing clothes and accessories with nasty dirt or stain. Most of them suggested me to surf a specific website and read about Nikwax Tech Wash and TX Direct Wash. Skimming the page about this washing solution convinced me to try it. I tried it on my raincoats and leather jackets made of Gore-Tex materials. I was quite impressed with the results after using these two products.


Features and Specifications

Two-way washing

It is a washing combo as it is consisted of two solutions; Tech Wash is a soap-based detergent intended for regular washing to clean tools and gadgets without creating damages such as thinning water repellent coatings; and TX Direct Wash enhances water repellent properties and rejuvenates breathe factor of the hard material. With this one-two punch, you can wash and preserve almost any kind of fabric be it normal linen or synthetic nylon, rucksacks, and other advance materials.

Important cleaning factors

Nikwax Tech Wash and TX. Direct Wash is water based-thus, it is not difficult to apply on clothes regardless if you are using washing machines or do it manually. No need to worry about contributing more damage to the environment it is eco-friendly due to use of fluorocarbon free materials.

Lets your fabrics breathe again

Whoever says that only living things are breathing must be living in the past. Synthetic made fabrics induces the person wearing it to sweat and during cold weather, waterproof items such as raincoats must let moisture to pass through so that perspiration will evaporate in order for us to stay dry inside our protective wet gear. This is where Nikwax Tech Wash and TX Direct Wash are very helpful as the former prolongs the shelf life and water repellent conditions. The latter, on the other hand, provides additional repelling properties and renews breathability conditions.

More benefits

Both products are easy to apply and are suitable for all types of fabrics. It can be used manually or through the help of auto wash machines. Nikwax Tech wash eliminates dirt residues that capture water and TX Direct Wash helps add life to the gear and enhances its wearability with additional damage to the clothes.

 Where it can be improved

Okay, because your gears and garments are fully washed and retained water resistant properties, chances are you do not consider inspecting the washing machines. Constant use of Nikwax Tech Wash and TX Direct Wash leaves some sticky feel around the tub of the auto machines. And it is quite difficult to remove. The manufacturer must provide solution to resolve this side effect of frequent usage of this product.

Final verdict

At price of around £17, it is really a bargain when you consider benefits such as saving and adding water repellent properties, no undue damage to the fabric, easy to use, and environment friendly at that. It is of little wonder that I already consumed two dozens of Nikwax Tech Wash and TX Direct Wash.  I am now considered a fan and spoke person of this product as I always suggest it to my friends whenever I hear the same problems as I had before.
