Just ran out of Nikwax Tx- Direct Spray and was thinking of attaching the pump from spray onto TX.Direct wash-in to do my gear. Is this feasable or are they both made up of slightly different components. i.e just poured some of each into glass and the TX.Direct spray looks a little clearer to the TX.Direct wash-in.
As I've just washed them, don't want to wash the items again with the fuller bottle that I have of Wash-In.
Could do with a reply before the items dry as I'me assuming (or have read) it is best to treat garments with the spray while still wet/slighlty damp.
they are slightly different, hence the reason one is wash and one is spray. you can treat garments while wet with both spray and wash in. the advantage of wash in, that it gets EVERWHERE with not much-nill chance of a spot getting missed.
any way back on track. the wash wont work to it full if you spray it on is what im trying to say.
I hear what ure saying but I'm sure I read for waterproofing that it's best to use spray on and manually treat the garment everywhere (nooks and crannies inc.) as if you use wash in, will it not create a slight DWR finish on the insde of a jacket where residue will be left and lessen breathabilty on the inside and that is therefore technically stopping water (or vapour) penetration or breathability.
Basically what I was thinking if I use wash in as spray on, will it be too strong as spray on looks a little clearer and wash in a little thicker looking as it will mix with the water in the wash machine.
yeah, does create a slight dwr coating on inside but that comes off due to it being in constant contact with you. i have always used it. i only use spray on long expeds when idont have a washing machine. but thats just me.
and yeah 2 strong. also the spray sticks 2 the fabric where as the wash in wont if stay as long if you just spray it on.
