We bought a secondhand tent , which when we put it up the rain was coming in the back of the canvas...and in one small part of roof...and through some of the seams ! Disaster....or so we thought. After comparing waterproofing products on the internet, we decided to try Nikwax canvas/cotton waterproofer. We couldn't have bought a better product !!! It was so easy to use. Just dilute with water and rub into the canvas. We used a squeegy mop on the roof, then a sponge on the rest of the tent. We rubbed it well into the canvas, then rinsed off with the hosepipe. It took a while to dry, because we extra soaked all the seams. When it had dried we didn't have to wait long for a heavy shower of rain to see if it had worked !
What a fantastic result !! NO LEAKS ANYWHERE ! We were absolutely delighted with the results . We did have to clean it off the see through windows with a cloth and a tiny drop of washing up liquid, then wiped off and polished dry.
We would have no hesitation in recommending this to all !
We also diluted a little of the product with water, soaked a piece of paper kitchen towel and left it to dry. The result was that when we splashed water on it, thw water just sat there in droplets on top of the papr towel.....didn't soak in at all !
We didn't use very much of the product. We have a Campeasy Kos 6 frame tent, so thought we would need a lot. We bought a 5ltr bottle.....done the whole tent TWICE over....and still have more than half the bottle left. So you don't need as much as you think you will !!
This product is...quick and easy to use, reasonable price, very effective, and DOES EXACTLY WHAT IT SAYS ON THE BOTTLE !!
We are now completly waterproofed, and looking forward to our next camping holiday.
Thankyou Nikwax for an excellant product.
