Description:
Safely revitalizes insulation and water repellency. If a breathable waterproof rug loses its water repellency, it will suffer a severe reduction in its ability to breathe. This will lead to a build up of condensation on the inside of the rug so the horse will become clammy, cold and uncomfortable. Always use Nikwax Rug Wash for cleaning breathable waterproof horse rugs.


Product Benefits:

  • It prolongs the life of horse rugs and optimizes performance
  • It maintains breathability
  • It maintains original water-repellency
  • It’s easy to apply - can be used in a domestic or commercial washing machine
  • Suitable for use on all rugs -, including those with breathable membranes
  • It lifts out dirt that can attract water and mask water repellent finishes
  • Unlike detergents, it does not leave behind water attractive residues which encourage ‘wetting-out’
  • It will remove detergent residues left behind by previous washes
  • Water Based - environmentally friendly, biodegradable, non flammable, non hazardous
  • Does not contain fluorocarbons

 

Directions:
Use neat Rug Wash and a sponge or soft nylon brush to treat stubborn stains before washing. Remove all non-washable parts. Shake well before use. Follow care label instructions. Do not use detergents.


Machine Wash:

  • Remove all detergent build-up from the detergent dispenser.
  • Place 1 item in washing machine (maximum 1 rug per load).
  • Ensure washing machine is large enough to allow freedom of movement for rug in drum.
  • Use 150 ml per rug.
  • Wash according to care label. Choose a cycle that will allow the rug to rinse thoroughly.
  • Hand Wash (use gloves):
  • Spread rug on clean area and wet thoroughly with a hose.
  • Dilute 1 part Rug Wash with 2 parts hot water.
  • Use brush to scrub the solution into fabric paying attention to dirty areas.
  • Rinse thoroughly in clean water.

 

Drying:

  • Air dry or tumble dry on a low setting if care label allows.
  • Proof rugs at least once a year with Nikwax® Rug Proof. No need to dry item(s) before waterproofing. Refer to Nikwax commercial leaflet for commercial washing.
     


When to use this product:

Always apply this product to new or used horse rugs to keep items in perfect condition. We recommend you clean items with Nikwax Rug Wash before proofing them with Nikwax Rug Proof. You should be able to wash reproof rugs frequently. Re-proof rugs with Nikwax at least once a year.

          Comments about Nikwak Nikwax Rug Wash 1 liter:

          The wash completely cleans horse blankets (and anything else: pet items, saddle pads, jackets, etc) very well. Stains and odor are completely removed (including mare urine smell). Very easy to use in the washing machine. One bottle washes several horse blankets. The wash also helps maintain water-proofing.

            Product was leaking when arrived. Not sure whose fault it was and it wasn't much so I didn't contact Schneider.
