Nikwax Cotton Proof
During spring, cotton and cotton-mix garments are a favoured choice of clothing for outdoor lovers. However, cotton is really absorbent, so if caught in a spring shower you could find yourself weighed down by cold, wet, heavy fabric. This can cause restricted movement and will reduce your garment’s breathability.

Nikwax Cotton Proof adds Durable Water Repellency (DWR) to the fabric fibres of cotton, polycotton and canvas, whilst still allowing moisture to pass through it, optimising breathability. Our latest formulation is 3x more concentrated, giving you better performance and great value for money! For best results, we recommend cleaning items first with Nikwax Tech Wash in a separate wash cycle.

Nikwax Cotton Proof is also great for use on cotton or canvas equipment, such as rucksacks, tents and awnings.

Nikwax Cotton Proof:

  • Is a must-have for people who enjoy outdoor activities
  • Provides DWR whilst maintaining breathability
  • Is quick and easy to apply in a washing machine, ensuring treatment works through the garment. It can also be applied by hand
  • Requires no heat to develop DWR, so a tumble drier is not required
  • Can be diluted and used on tents and tent awnings
  • For best results, clean items first with Nikwax Tech Wash in a separate wash cycle
  • Is water-based, non-flammable, contains no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and is fluorocarbon-free
