How to use

For best results always clean item(s) first. No need to dry item(s) before waterproofing.

  • Protect working surface and lay clean wet item flat, or erect tent and wet.
  • Spray evenly to outside of fabric. Avoid backpack straps.
  • Wait for 2 minutes. Remove any surplus product with a damp cloth.
  • Check carefully to ensure no areas have been missed.
  • After several minutes check for and remove surplus product with a damp cloth*.

*Marks may appear on fabric if excess product is not wiped away. Test on a hidden area first.

Use approximately 2fl oz (50ml) of product per 10ft² (1m²) of fabric.

The coverage is approximate and depends on the condition of the fabric being treated.

To maintain waterproofing always clean with Nikwax Tech Wash®. Do not use detergents.

To waterproof cotton, polycotton or canvas use Nikwax Cotton Proof™.
