For cleaning and conditioning woollen base layers on the move

Why technical base layer fabrics dry quickly and cool you down…

Woollen base layers are designed to be worn next to the skin, providing user comfort by maintaining body temperature and controlling moisture. They are highly wicking (will spread moisture out over a large area), fast drying and breathable. It is therefore essential to maintain these properties when caring for woollen base layers.

Base layers need to be cared for properly to keep them in top condition…

Base layers are fantastic for regulating your temperature and controlling body moisture, but to keep them functioning properly care must be taken when washing.

It is recommended to wash woollen items in mild liquid detergents and to avoid using powder or bio detergents, which contain enzymes. Using conventional household detergents or fabric conditioners can impair wicking properties by causing the fabric to retain moisture. This leads to reduced wicking capabilities and slow drying of the fabric, resulting in reduced user comfort. Additionally, standard household softeners and conditioners can lead to pilling over a number of washes.

Wash your base layers after use…

Nikwax Wool Wash® Travel Gel is ideal for when you’re away from home. Once your base layer has been used a few times wash it with Nikwax Wool Wash Travel Gel to refresh, remove odours, soften and enhance drying and cooling. Always apply Nikwax Wool Wash Travel Gel to used woollen base layers, socks and travel clothing to keep them in perfect condition.

Conventional travel washes reduce the performance of your base layers…

Using conventional travel washes will impair the wicking properties of base layer fabrics and will not stop odours from building up in the fabric when in use. Additionally, regular fabric conditioners leave water-hating (hydrophobic) residues that will reduce the performance of the fabric, preventing it from spreading moisture and working to its maximum potential. Nikwax Wool Wash Travel Gel outperforms conventional travel washes (and fabric conditioners) at improving wicking, accelerating drying, and removing and preventing odour build up.

For best results make sure you use the correct product…

Nikwax Wool Wash Travel Gel has been specifically formulated for use when cleaning and conditioning woollen base layers while away from home. If you have synthetic base layers make sure you use Nikwax BaseWash® Travel Gel for best results.
