It's that time of year again, in sets the cold and rain. Looking out your old waterproof jacket? Maybe it's working great, waterproof and breatable. Or maybe it's lost its lustre?
When your jacket is dirty this causes the fabric to 'wet out' and loose its breatability. If you wash your jacket in a standard washing detergent it will not help matters either, as it leaves residue behind. You could use a non-detergent based tech wash. This will not compromise the breathability or waterproofing of your jacket. However over time your jacket will loose its durable water repellency, which is where re-proofing comes into play.
We think you should get the best out of your clothes so... we are now selling Grangers 30° 2 in 1 Cleaner and Waterproofer, at the Carnaby Street store and Bristol store. This product has energy saving in mind, as you only need to use one wash cycle. It is bluesign certified; and is the only aftercare company to have this accreditation. Bluesign is the world's only independant benchmark that guarantees products are free from harmful substances, and as such are safe for humans and the environment. We also have Grangers XT proofer spray available. Many conventional re-proofers rely on heat being applied to activate it. This means using your tumble drier or and iron. We don't want you to use this energy unnecessarily. The XT proofer restores the perforormance of your jacket, with simply airdrying it after you have sprayed it.
I know this reads a bit like an infomercial...but hopefully we have imparted some knowledge on aftercare for you.
