Nikwax Base Wash
Wash for synthetic base layers.
Deodorizing cleaner and conditioner for synthetic technical underwear and wicking clothing worn next to the skin. Base Wash effectively cleans, deodorizes, inhibits the build up of body odors, accelerates drying and improves cooling efficiency of synthetic base layers.
Once your base layer has been used a few times and is starting to smell, wash it with Nikwax BaseWash® to deodorize, freshen, soften, and enhance drying and cooling. Always apply this product to used synthetic base layers, socks, sports apparel and travel clothing to keep them in perfect condition.
Using conventional household detergents and fabric conditioners will impair the wicking properties of base layer fabrics. Standard household detergents do not stop odors 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 odor build up.
