Wipe the garment if it is dirty instead of machine wash and air dry or use a drying cabinet afterwards. It is important to re-impregnate your shell garments when you notice that the outer cover begins to deteriorate, the water droplets will run off the fabric without absorbing moisture. There are several different impregnation methods by spray or washing machine impregnation. Follow the respective impregnation instructions for the best protection.

Outdoor trousers in polyester / cotton: Wash the pants in 40 ° separately and avoid tumble drying. If you want your trousers more water resistant, you can impregnate them in the washing machine with washing or impregnating with wax. When waxing bright garments they might become slightly darker in shade with several layers of wax, several layers increases water repellency. The advantage of wax is that it protects against dirt and water and prolongs the life of the garment. Wax is easily washed out in the washing machine. Nikwax makes impregnation for the washing machine, wax available in several variants Greenland or ottervax.
