Thread: Washing cammos.

  1. #1

    Washing cammos.

    What powder do you wash your cammos with?

    For breathable water proof clothes I use TecWash (nikwax) then I wash again with TX Direct (nikwax). This combination restores the qulities of the clothing.

    One thing to watch for is never to use biological powders on waterproof clothes. I'd recommend rinsing the bio out of the machine before hand.

    Next best thing is pure soap flakes in the wash.

    Don't wash 'em, just brush off the dirt.If they are too dirty I only was them in water, no powder/liquid in the machine.
    I have got the wash in nic wax stuff for an army cammo smock.

    I agree with Willie but...............

    There does come a point where the accumulated layer of mud, blood and gralloch becomes just too much - especially when you have to go to Tesco on the way home

    25 degrees, and Tesco naturally delicates washing soap (low odour, no UV brighteners, reasonably kind to the environment).

    Mine are standing up unsupported in the back kitchen yelling at me that there's still a month of roe does. There are whole new life forms evolving in there!

    Wash em? Never! Mind you, it does rain quite a bit here!

    I just use normal handwash stuff followed by about 20 rinses and then a week stuffed in a hedge to get the smell off. Wash about once a year.

    Have to use an axe on the water mind!
