2 in 1 Wash & Proof

Dri-Pak Wash and ProofDri-Pak is pleased to announce the launch of its latest product – the 2 in 1 Wash & Proof, designed for outdoor and waterproof clothing. It can even waterproof garments that weren’t originally waterproof.

Advances in textiles and treatments means that many people now own a waterproof jacket; they are no longer the preserve of expensive specialist outdoor clothing brands. However the water repellent properties soon start to diminish as they become dirty.

Washing in detergent will further strip the protection. Seasoned outdoor enthusiasts would entrust their garment to ‘tech washes’ and reproofing sprays, available from specialist shops and at a price. Dri-Pak’s 2 in 1 Wash & Proof is a cheaper alternative that proofs/reproofs whilst retaining fabric breathability. As well as the hard core outdoor enthusiast, it’s also ideal for casual use such as walking the dog.

Up to 2 garments can be treated at once; after first washing in the washing machine, they should be placed in a tumble dryer or ironed under a towel as the product is heat activated. It utilises dendrimer polymer technology, as opposed to fluorocarbons, so has a good environmental profile. It does not affect the hydrostatic head rating of the fabric and will prolong shower repellency. As well as re-proofing garments it can also provide protection to previously untreated fabrics so will be popular with cyclists and golfers for example.

The video below shows how easy it is to use and how effective it is at reproofing garments. This video shows an exceptionally dirty waterproof jacket so is cleaned with Soda Crystals Laundry Boost and Liquid Soap Flakes, prior to its ‘wash & proof’ treatment. If your garment is not very dirty, no pre-washing is needed and you can simply use the 2 in 1 Wash & proof.
