Nikwax Rug Proof - 5 L
The easy to use, safe, high performance wash in waterproofing for all animal rugs and coats.
Adds Durable Water Repellency and revitalises breathability and insulation of your animal's rugs and coats.
Why breathability is essential for the comfort of your animal
Your animal is most likely to get clammy and uncomfortable in wet or damp conditions if the breathability of their waterproof rug or coat is impaired. If the outer fabric absorbs water, the rug/coat can lose up to 70% of its breathability. Therefore, the Durable Water Repellency (DWR) on the outer fabric of your animal rug/coat must be maintained to ensure comfort. It will eventually wear off and need to be renewed with Nikwax Rug Proof.
When to use Nikwax Rug Proof
Your waterproof animal rugs and coats could be soaking up water just because they are dirty. First, try cleaning them with Nikwax Rug Wash™ and if your animal rug or coat is fairly new, or recently re-waterproofed the Durable Water Repellency (DWR) will be revitalised just from cleaning. But, once the rug/coat has been thoroughly worn, you will need to add DWR, using Nikwax Rug Proof™, after cleaning first with Nikwax Rug Wash.
How Nikwax Rug Proof protects your animal
Nikwax Rug Proof adds Durable Water Repellency (DWR) whilst maintaining breathability. It is quick and easy to apply in the washing machine, and its DWR develops on air drying.
Nikwax Rug Wash™ has been specifically designed and optimised for breathable waterproof animal rugs and coats. It leaves a flexible water repellent treatment on individual fibres allowing moisture vapour to pass through, maintaining breathability, while protecting your animal from getting wet in the rain.
Finally, washing machine application ensures that the treatment goes right through the rug or coat, treating seams, tapes and cords, as well as the fabric.
