    1.0 out of 5 stars Do NOT Use In Your Washing Machine!! 23 July 2010
    Size Name:5lt
    I used this product to reproof my horse rugs by putting it in my washing machine. Having followed the instructions the rugs appear to be fine (although they have not been out in the rain yet) but the washing machine was not....the whole of the drum and door was covered in what looked like thick grey grease which I could not get off!! I telephoned the manufacturer and they said to use Cilit Bang and just wipe it off with kitchen towel. After trying this to no avail what I really had to do was buy some industrial degreaser and spray my washing machine several times over a period of two days then using a pan scrubber I had to scrub the whole drum and the door (not an easy task). I then had to put a pint of degreaser into my washing machine and run it on its' hottest wash, this had to repeated three times more, each time cleaning the grease out of the drum. Needless to say this is an experience I NEVER wish to repeat, so would never ever use this product again.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Nikwax Wash in Re-proofer really works 16 Jan 2011
    By Mac
    Size Name:5lt
    Fantastic product that really does work on all types of rugs. It's worth the effort as the results are great but ensure you follow the instructions to the letter. Note that the amount you have to use is too large for the washing machine dispenser.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great Value 15 Aug 2011
    Size Name:25lt
    Great Value, easy to use, you need to be strong to lift it and you will need a handpump to dispense measures whilst it is full as it is too heavy to lift and pour.

    By charlie

    We find this product a very good wash in proofer for our horse blankets. It does what it says and we are more than pleased with the results. We would highly recommend this product although it can be a little pricey.

    5.0 out of 5 stars The best 27 Feb 2014
    By Goo
    Size Name:1lt|Verified Purchase
    I can't vouch for how well it proofed the pony rug as I didn't use it again, but I used it on an old jacket (having left my good one in Wales) after using the Nikwax rug wash and the jacket is more waterproof 6 weeks later than it was when I bought it. I have tried many different waterproofers over the years and none has ever been so good. It seems to be keeping the jacket cleaner too - I am a gardener and my clothes get very dirty this weather, but not the jacket - the dirt just brushes off again.

    This is the third or fourth bottle we have bought and it gives great results every time, we have even used it on some old coats that were leaking a bit and it has worked fine.
