Wash & Waterproofing (DWR)

Your outdoor apparel requires proper care and maintenance to ensure optimum performance. Unlike washing regular clothes with laundry detergent, outdoor jackets and pants are recommended to be washed with specialized detergent to remove dirt and body oils whilst aiding water repellency.

DWR (Durable Water Repellent) layers on the surface on your outdoor apparel, which is used to encourage water to bead up and roll off the surface of the fabric, is an important feature that requires the right maintenance to keep you warm and dry. At Renewt, we have tested and selected the best technical wash detergent to correctly wash your outdoor apparel, while re-activating the DWR layers to restore your technical gear for optimal performance.
