Our clothes are made to cope with most conditions, but if they are to last as long as possible it’s a good idea to know how to take care of them. Here are a few smart tips about how to look after your clothes.
Coming in from the rain
Let wet garments dry slowly at room temperature. Leather garments should not be dried at too high a temperature and never in an airing cupboard or on a radiator as this will make garments stiff and hard.
Leather garments must never dry out completely. Because dry leather fibres break easily under stress such as an accident, treat leather regularly with e.g. Nikwax Waterproof Wax for Leather so that it retains
its natural elasticity. Use a mild soap solution or leather soap such as Nikwax Leather Cleaner two or three times a year to ensure garments last year in, year out. Always test it first somewhere that doesn’t show e.g. inside.
To keep textile garments clean, wash them according to their washing instructions; we recommend the use of Nikwax Tech Wash. But don’t forget to remove the armour.
You should waterproof outer garments often, preferably every three washes. Use Nikwax TX Direct for functional clothing.
