Product #: 1.10.1
Many years ago I introduced a wash-in water-repellent treatment in view of the poor performance of the materials sold as water-repellent, now making treatments more important. In order to keep an expensive rain garment working as a water-repellent garment, you have to treat it with a water-repellent. Eg. Fabrics that have not been Urethan Coated...
That being said, do not expect a water-repellent to last forever. The chemical attaches to, or bonds with, the fiber from which the fabric is constructed. Laundering will deplete the water-repellency, hence the need for re-water-repellent treatment periodically. How do you know when to re-treat the garment? When the fabric no longer sheds water...
This water-repellent treatment does not inhibit the natural vapor permeability of your fabric. It does not clog the holes or spaces between the yarns. It is for this reason you will be more comfortable in a rain or snow situation.
If you happen to own a rain garment that is laminated to a film, which is no longer keeping rain out, just treat it with my water-repellent...
1. Launder garment(s) in accordance with instructions on care label.
2. Re-set washer to last rinse cycle and fill the machine.
3. Shake the bottle and add 2-3oz to (rinse) water for each garment.
4. Run rinse cycle and dry garments completely at highest heat recommended by manufacturer on care label. Heat activates the repellency of Wiggy's Fluid Repelent.
