Cotton proof works by coating the individual fibres with a flexible water repellant treatment so they can't soak up as much water whilst allowing moisture vapour to pass through.  This process reduces weight gain from water ingress and maintains the natural breathability of cotton.  Easily applied in a washing machine, which ensures the treatment gets right thorough the fabric.  However if garment care instructions restrict machine use, hand proofing is effective. The Durable Water Repellency (DWR) develops on air drying, there is no need for tumble drying.  For used and dirty clothing we we recommend that the garment is first cleaned with Nikwax Tech Wash on a separate cycle, there is no need to dry before re-proofing, just bung in the Cotton Proof and start another wash cycle.

Nikwax waterproofing products are completely environmentally friendly.  They are water based, non aerosol, non -flammable, non hazardous, contain no harmful solvents or volatile organic compounds and are completely free of flurocarbons.  Which is nice.

The product I bought was competitively priced. The video demonstration of the product assisted me in my decision to purchase the item and was very informative, as it showed all of the features and the fit. I chose "click and collect" which was an efficient and quick process. I would definitely shop here again.
