Nikwax Footwear Cleaning Gel is a highly effective cleaner which has been specifically designed and optimised for breathable waterproof footwear.Nikwax Footwear Cleaning Gel is a safe product to use on breathable waterproof footwear as it does not leave water attracting (hydrophilic) residues, which lead to fabric and leather absorbing water and ‘wetting out’. Nikwax Footwear Cleaning Gel removes water absorbent dirt and stains picked up during use; this revitalises Durable Water Repellency (DWR) and causes water to bead on the outer surface. Regular cleaning with Nikwax Footwear Cleaning Gel will revitalise existing DWR and revive breathability of your footwear, keeping your feet dry and comfortable.
Applying Nikwax Footwear Cleaning Gel by hand…
Recommended for Gore-Tex, eVENT & SympaTex footwear.
Rinse item with clean water to remove loose mud and to dampen surface.
Shake well before use. Press sponge applicator to break seal.
Apply generously over the area to be cleaned.
If very dirty scrub with a stiff nylon brush (e.g. nail brush).
Rinse well with clean water.
If required, apply appropriate Nikwax WaterBased waterproofing or conditioner while footwear is damp.
Note: Colour may run, test on a hidden area first.
Always allow footwear to dry naturally…
Leave footwear to dry at room temperature.
Paper can be stuffed into the toes to absorb excess moisture, this should be replaced when wet.
Keep footwear away from fires and radiators, drying too quickly can crack leather and cause bonded soles to peel.
