Be sure to read the instructions, including pre-rinsing the washer to remove any residual laundry detergent and using the Nikwax Tech Wash first before using the Nikwax TX.Direct Wash-In Waterproofing Nikwax TX.Direct Wash-In Waterproofing . I bought both the Tech Wash and TX.Direct in 30.4 oz bottles.
Please note: The Tech Wash will use about 10 oz per load (max of 6 garments), whereas the TX.Direct will use 10 oz per load (max of 3 garments). I grabbed all of the rain jackets, ski parkas, backpacking pants, gloves, anything that I needed to be treated. I had nylon shells, Gore-Tex garments and various synthetic accessories that I wanted to try.
Afterwards, I tumble dried them all in low heat. The results were great! The outer material of my Gore-Tex garments that used to soak with water now repels them easily. Better than new, I think. The other garments and gloves repel water equally as well.
NOTE: It is not mentioned anywhere, but after using the TX.Direct Wash, be sure to clean and wash your dryer lint screen with warm soapy water (this should be done a few times a year anyway). Otherwise, moisture does not pass through the screen very well. You can test this by putting your screen under the faucet. The water should pass through the screen very easily. If the water pools or does not pass through cleanly, then the screen material is clogged with detergent, fabric softener or water repellent. Just a suggestion.
