Product Description

Nikwax BaseWash 300ml

Deodorising cleaner and conditioner for synthetic technical underwear and wicking clothing worn next to the skin.

BaseWash® effectively cleans, deodorises, inhibits the build up of body odours, accelerates drying and improves cooling efficiency of synthetic base layers.

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.

Base layers need to be cared for properly to avoid odour build up...

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!

Wash your base layers regularly or when they start to smell...

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.

Conventional household detergents and fabric conditioners reduce the performance of your base layers...

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.

For best results make sure you use the best product...

Nikwax BaseWash® has been specifically formulated for use when cleaning and conditioning synthetic base layers. If you have woollen base layers make sure you use Nikwax Wool Wash™ for best results.

How Nikwax BaseWash® makes your synthetic base layers perform better...

  • Nikwax BaseWash® is easy to use as it cleans and conditions at the same time.
  • Nikwax BaseWash® refreshes your synthetic base layers by deodorising and maintains freshness by preventing odour build up when in use.
  • Nikwax BaseWash® also enhances and revitalises the wicking properties of synthetic base layers and increases breathability. This helps the fabric to spread sweat, dry quickly, and keep you more comfortable in all conditions.
