Sweatproofing and the ever-changing UK weather Product News

At Nikwax we love the UK for the multitude of climbs and peaks we have available, from Snowdonia to the Highlands to Dartmoor. We are lucky have so much choice so close together. Sure it's not quite Patagonia or the Himalayas, but its home. Our weather is wild and ever-changing, just one of the reasons we like to talk about it so much. But it can also quickly highlight that your sports kit and baselayers may have become less effective at keeping you fresh and comfortable. We know that poor performing kit can turn what should be a great day into a bad day, so looking after the kit you have invested in is important. Now is the perfect time to give your valued baselayers some TLC with our range of Nikwax Sweatproofing washes.

Nikwax BaseWash®, Nikwax BaseFresh®, Nikwax Wool Wash™ and Nikwax Sandal and Sports Shoe Wash™:
Baselayers need special care to keep them performing at their best as they wick sweat away from your skin to help regulate body temperature. These performance enhancing cleaners and conditioners are for staying cool, dry and fresh in sports clothing and baselayers. All are easy to use in your washing machine at home. 

Nikwax BaseWash is a speciality cleaner and conditioner designed to deodorise and enhance the wicking and drying performance of technical base layers.

Nikwax Wool Wash is a deodorising cleaner and conditioner specifically for woollen baselayers. It enhances and revitalises the natural wicking properties and maintains the softness of woollen base layers. 

Nikwax BaseFresh is a deodorising fabric conditioner for all technical synthetic and woollen baselayers. There is no need to separate your baselayers when using Basefresh, just use instead of a fabric conditioner alongside your usual detergent. 

Nikwax Sandal and Sports Shoe Wash comes with a handy sponge applicator, making it an easy to use deodorising cleaner for all non-waterproof footwear. Nikwax Sandal and Sports Shoe Wash™ cleans and removes odours for comfort & freshness. Recommended for Keen®and Teva™ footwear. 

Nikwax have put together an easy-to-use Sports Kit which includes Nikwax BaseFresh®, Nikwax Wool Wash™ and Nikwax Sandal and Sports Shoe Wash™ with a sponge applicator, plus a 10l Dry Bag for just £16.00. Order here and have your kit ready for anything.
