BaseWash® effectively cleans, deodorizes, inhibits the build up of body odors, accelerates drying and improves cooling efficiency of synthetic base layers.
Using conventional household detergents or fabric conditioners can impair wicking properties by causing the fabric to retain moisture. This leads to reduced wicking capabilities and slow drying of the fabric. Additionally, odors will not be adequately removed, instead they are masked by perfumes which will fail quickly, leaving you with your original problem!
Nikwax BaseWash® has been specifically formulated for use when cleaning and conditioning synthetic base layers. If you have woolen base layers make sure you use Nikwax Wool Wash™ for best results.
