A common myth amongst skiers is that you can't wash your ski jacket and pants because they will lose their waterproofing. Enter Nikwax Tech Wash, the best detergent for cleaning your ski gear whilst ensuring the waterproofing stays intact.
Contrary to popular belief, cleaning your outerwear is super important for maintaining the waterproofing. With use, contaminants such as dirt, grime, and grease get embedded in your outerwear's membrane and allow water to penetrate easier. A simple wash cleans out the pores of the membrane and lets your jacket operate at 100%
Nikwax's water-based formula doesn't contain any harsh chemicals and helps remove all contaminants as well as any residue left on your jacket from snowmakers or previous washes in regular detergent.
The Nikwax formula is designed to re-vitalise your waterproofing, assuming it hasn't fully worn away. If you wash your outerwear and water still doesn't bead off. It may be time to re-waterproof your jacket as well. We tend to wash and re-waterproof our gear at least once a season to ensure its performance in every condition.
How to Use
- Sponge on Tech Wash for any stubborn stains prior to washing.

- If you are continuing to waterproof with TX Direct, apply waterproofing treatment before letting the garment dry.

Be sensible – if you slide rails or hit rocks, your skis aren’t going to get replaced.
Chips to the edges of a ski's topsheet & topsheet peeling caused by skiing with your feet close together or banging your skis together on a lift are not covered by warranty.
