Forgotten the last time you actually stayed dry inside that expensive hard shell that you bought not so very long ago? Remember when water used to bead on the outside of your jacket instead of seeping into your clothes beneath? Found yourself looking at shiny new kit in the gear shop recently, struggling to justify yet another purchase?
Of course you have. This is normal. You are not alone.
But did you know you could change all that for £8.99 and a quick wash?
Grangers Clothing Wash + Repel is a unique wash-in product designed to deliver effective cleaning and durable water-repellency in a single wash cycle.
Formulated to clean and restore the water-repellency of all outdoor clothing
Fluorocarbon-free and environmentally responsible
Suitable for use on all Gore-Tex® and eVent garments
By cleaning and reproofing in a single wash cycle, Grangers Wash + Repel saves time, energy, and water – reducing your environmental impact and maximising your time outdoors. You'll be kept warm and dry which might just make that E2 feel like a VS or help keep you focused on a bearing the next time you're coming off the tops in a whiteout.
The reality is that no matter how good or how much you paid for your hardshell jacket, sallopettes or other waterproof gear, it will not remain waterproof forever.
Every garment will need cleaning and reproofing sooner or later. Probably sooner than you think.
Based on fluorocarbon-free technology and designed to work at low temperatures, Grangers Clothing Wash + Repel restores all outdoor clothing to its original level of performance.
Clothing Wash + Repel is safe to use in all domestic washing machines. This PFC-free unique formulation delivers results without the need for heat activation, although low-temperature tumble drying will enhance durability. If a tumble dryer is not available, ironing or blow-drying will also work.
Grangers Clothing Wash + Repel is suitable for use on all outdoor and technical fabrics, and is perfect for restoring the water-repellent finishes found on all Gore-Tex® and eVent garments.
