For cleaning and conditioning base layers
Speciality cleaner and conditioner designed to deodorise and enhance the wicking and drying performance of technical base layers. Easy to use in your washing machine.
Why use Nikwax BaseWash?
Synthetic base layers are designed to be worn next to the skin, providing user comfort by maintaining body temperature and controlling moisture. The fabrics used are highly wicking (they will spread moisture out over a large area), fast drying and breathable. It is therefore essential to maintain these properties when caring for base layers.
Synthetic base layers are fantastic for regulating your temperature and controlling body moisture, but over time a build up of bacteria and body oils can lead to them smelling. To keep synthetic base layers functioning properly, care must be taken when washing. 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. Additionally, odours will not be adequately removed, instead they are masked by perfumes which will fail quickly, leaving you with smelly base layers!
Once your base layer has been used a few times and is starting to smell, wash it with Nikwax BaseWash to deodorise, freshen, soften, and enhance drying and cooling. Always apply this product to used synthetic base layers, socks, sports kit and travel clothing to keep them in perfect condition.
Using conventional household detergents and fabric conditioners will impair the wicking properties of base layer fabrics. Standard household detergents do not stop odours from building up in the fabric when in use. Conventional 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 BaseWash outperforms conventional household detergents and fabric conditioners at improving wicking, accelerating drying, and removing and preventing odour build up.
