ECO-FRIENDLY WATER REPELLENT SPRAY to improve water- (and dirt) repellency on most functional fabrics, e.g. polyester, polyamide, wool, cotton and blends. Excellent for functional outdoor garments and gears, e.g. shells, soft-shells, skiwear, wind- breakers, trekking garments, bags, packs, tents e t c. Maintains the fabrics breathability, color and structure. The product is able to dry in room temperature, however preferable use a tumble dryer or drying cabinet to reactivate the DWR impregnation most effectively (if possible).
Easy to apply on clean and dry textile.
TECHNOLOGY: Inspired by nature´s own chemistry, like a leaf is water repellent. The formulation connects to each fiber deeply (3D) and gives a nice hand feel, no color changes or stiffness and it maintains the breathability very well.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE:
1) Wash the textile/garment without fabric softener. Ensure the fabrics are completely dry and clean.
2) Protect the work surface. Spray from 20 cm distance, make sure the fabric becomes evenly wet. Wait 1 minute, spray again and rub the liquid evenly with a rag.

500 ml are sufficient for 5 items or 10-12 sqm of textile.
More about DWR:
Most outdoor garments are initial treated with an impregnation often named DWR (Durable Water Repellency). Many brands have moved on for sustainable reasons to use a PFC free DWR, which won’t be as durable as the ones using fluorocarbons. This means the garment needs to be re-impregnate more often to maintain the functionality, breathability and to keep the outer fabrics dry. It´s therefore important to use also biodegradable, products that are not harmful to the nature when washing and re-impregnate the products. By using OrganoTex® products you can be sure its high biobased content and readily biodegradable.
