Life isn't a bed of roses, and neither is waterproofing your gear. But with Nikwax, it's as close as it gets! So, roll up those sleeves and let's get cracking. Here's a straightforward, no-nonsense guide to using Nikwax products.

Step 1: Clean Your Gear

Before you jump headfirst into the waterproofing pool, you gotta take a shower first—metaphorically speaking, of course! Cleaning your gear ensures that the Nikwax treatment bonds better. For the best results, use Nikwax Footwear Cleaning Gel.

Step 2: Apply Nikwax

No, you don't need a PhD in Chemistry for this. Applying Nikwax is as simple as spray and go! Ensure your gear is damp, then apply a generous layer of Nikwax. Got an equestrian jacket that needs a water-repellent boost? Try the Nikwax TX Direct Wash-In. It's like giving your jacket a spa day!

Step 3: Dry Your Gear

Once you've applied Nikwax, let your gear dry naturally. If you're impatient (no judgment here), refer to the specific drying instructions on the product label.
