Why We Like The Tech Wash

We use Nikwax Tech Wash to clean and care for our waterproof/breathable garments because we got fed up with our favorite gear getting dirty and less effective.


  • Fabric cleaner that reinvigorates DWR finishes
  • Effective DWR fights off face fabric saturation
  • Lack of saturation boosts breathability effectiveness
  • 10fl oz will clean up to 6 technical garments
  • Item #NIK0033
10 fl oz (300ml), 33.8 fl oz (1L)

A great wash for tech fabrics.

I used the tech wash on my Helly Hansen jacket. It came out beautifully. The jacket felt clean and there was no color fade. Worked well as a prep wash before applying the waterproofing. Directions were easy to follow and the process was not complicated or time consuming so pretty much anyone could easily use this product.

Restore High End Gear to Exceed the Performance Expectations in Traitorous Conditions

The Gore-Tex cleaning goat! I love this and relly on Nikwax to clean and reactivate my Gore-Tex Ski Shell. Tech Wash paired with TX Direct is an essential duo for proper mountain adventures. I use Tech Wash 3-7 times a ski season and the TX Direct maybe 2 times a season with an annual clean at the end of the season.

Love Nixwax

I’ve been using Nixwax for a while to keep my outdoor gear clean and reapply some water resistance. Highly recommend to get years out of your gear!

Get it wet and keep it dry!

This stuff works. Follow the manufactures recommendation by getting it wet with the product.

The best way to clean your waterproof jacket!

For over 20 years Tech Wash has kept my shells and pants clean. Clean gear works better and lasts longer. When you spend hard-earned cash on gear you want it to last and perform every time. Plus its easy to use and does not have any of the bad "stuff" that damages the planet.

Great cleaning product for Gore-Tex, Hydrous, etc.

Used Tec Wash to clean several garments (Immersion Research drysuit, Camp Seven soft-shell jacket, & Columbia Omni-Tech pants) in preparation for applying Nik-Wax DWR treatments. All garments washed in household front-loading washer. Product cleaned all fabric well, and left no discernible residue. Had previously used a different drysuit/wetsuit shampoo in the drysuit, but the Tec-Wash cleaned much better, and didn't require laborious rinsing to clean out the soap.

Another great product from nikwax

Cleaned up outerwear nicely. Then purple to proof it. Key to use this first before waterproofing for best results. The product pays for itself. I was ready to replace my 10 year old raincoat and it's like new again.

Nikwax is my go to.

I have used this product for years and it is my go to. I have used it with the wash in as well as the direct spray on treatment afterwards which works great. All my coats I use are mostly day to day, run around the city so it doesn't have a lot of wear and tear which means I don't clean my items as frequently as needed as the DWR layer tends to last.

Protects Pricey Clothing

Works great for cleaning while maintaining DWR. Helps reduce synthetic clothing funk. Might be expensive, but reapplying washed out DWR more often due to improper washing is way pricier.
