Washing your Ventile® or Cotton Analogy® garment
Washing your Ventile® or Cotton Analogy® garment cleans the item, revitalises the Durable Water Repellency (DWR) coating and revives breathability. It's quick and easy - turnaround time when we receive your garment is 3-5 working days, excluding return shipping.
We clean garments in dedicated washing machines which are guaranteed free of contaminants such as detergent and conditioner - such contaminants have an adverse effect on water repellency and may cause long term damage to the fabric. We only use Nikwax Tech Wash to wash the garments; non-hazardous, Tech Wash is water based and biodegradable.
Reproofing your Ventile® or Cotton Analogy® garment
Ventile® and Cotton Analogy® garments occasionally require reproofing, when the Durable Water Repellency (DWR) has been worn off and the garment is no longer waterproof. Due to the inherent qualities of the Ventile fabric, unless your garment requires frequent washing, it may take some considerable time for the repellency to wear off.
When reproofing is required, we first wash the garment as described above, before further washing the garment in Nikwax TX Direct® Wash-In, which has been specifically designed and optimised for breathable waterproof garments. Nikwax TX Direct® leaves a flexible water repellent treatment on individual fibres, allowing moisture vapour to pass through, and so maintaining breathability. As with our washing process, we use only dedicated washing machines, guaranteed free of contaminants which may harm the garment and reduce its performance.
