5.0 out of 5 stars revitalise your waterproofs
I can highly recommend this product for easily reproofing your waterproof clothing. It is very simple to use and unlike some other products does not require the garment to be tumble dried or ironed after treatment. It is definitely more effective if you use Nikwax Techwash to clean the clothes first.

1.0 out of 5 stars Fiddly and useless
Very fiddly process which we followed to the letter only to find that the jacket was no more waterproof than before. It was a good jacket that had been fully waterproof until a camping holiday that was one downpour after another and drenched the coat. I hoped this would revive it but no deal - I cannot recommend it at all unfortunately.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nikwax TX Direct Wash-in, 1 Oct. 2009
This stuff Nikwax TX Direct Wash-In does exactly what is says on the tin (well bottle). I am delighted with how it has restored waterproofing to my quilted coat (which was behaving like a veritable sponge in the rain), even though it says its for use on fabrics without wicking/absorbant liners it has worked beautifully. It is so easy to use, quite literally its all done in the washing machine, what could be easier?

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent re-proofer, 8 May 2009
By 
Ronnie (Hampshire, UK) - See all my reviews
Easy to use - and an effective way to re-waterproof garments like ski jackets that have lost some repellency as the result of past washing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, 26 July 2010
Good product to revive the waterproofing of your jacket. I used it on a textile motorcycle suit and it worked as advertised.

4.0 out of 5 stars NikWax TX wash-in proofing, 6 Sept. 2009
Tried this after being recommended in an outdoor shop.
The product was tried in a Hotpoint Aquarius at 30 degrees on a short cycle with short spin. The garment was a ten year old Berghaus Aquafoil cagoule which was soaking up rain. No beading and running off, just soaking in.
Washed as per instructions then hung out to dry on a washing line.
Once dry the cagoule felt no different but when it rained the water mostly beaded and ran off with hardly any soaking in. Not as good as a new Berghaus but impressive nonetheless. I will use the product again on this cagoule and on others in the family.
Recommended.

Does exactly what it says. Throw your pre-washed coats in the washing machine, add the liquid, put on a cool wash, and hey presto your coats are re-proofed. No need for a tumble drier, just hang outside.

5.0 out of 5 stars nikwax tx, 6 Jun. 2010
By 
Mr. P. Parpagga "pags" (england) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
very good value in the 1 ltr size, allows you to proof 2 garments at once
and you get upto 10 wash in proofs per 1 ltr bottle
this does not wash the garment so you need to use another product to
wash the garment prior to proofing it

5.0 out of 5 stars Getting more out of this great product, 27 Mar. 2013
This review is from: Nikwax TX. Direct Wash In Waterproofer (Sports)
This stuff is about as good as it gets in the re-proofing market, but what Nikwax won't tell you is that you don't have to throw away the stuff after you've reproofed garments in it. Use the bucket method and you can keep the stuff in a container for next time.

Here's what I do:

1) Wash one or two garments in Nikwax Tech Wash as per their washing instructions.
2) Pour 300ml of TX Direct into a clean bucket and add a couple of litres of warm water.
3) Take the garments out of the washing machine into a laundry basket.
4) Immerse one garment in the bucket. Use gloves if you don't want to waterproof your hands. Add a bit more water if you need to. Mix around like you're gently hand-washing the garment. It will be difficult to get all the air pockets out of the garment, so it will tend to float a bit and not be fully immersed in the solution, so leave for five minutes, turn it over and over a few times and then leave for another five minutes or so.
5) Transfer the first garment back into the washing machine. Best to put the bucket in front of the machine if you don't want a shiny waterproof floor where it splashes.
6) Repeat steps 4-5 for the second garment if there is one.
7) Rinse and spin (gently) in the washing machine.
8) Drip dry or tumble dry if the care instructions allow.

And finally:

9) Keep the remaining solution from the bucket for next time. You might need to add a little more TX Direct and/or water, but the same solution will re-proof many more garments.

If you'd used the washing machine, all that lovely TX Direct would be going straight down your drain!
