Nikwax Fabric and Leather Care Kit
Clean and maintain your performance footwear with this handy Nikwax kit that includes cleaning gel and a waterproofing agent for fabric and leather. Nikwax water-based products are nontoxic and contain no harmful solvents, fluorocarbons or propellants. Handy gel cleaner works on all suede, nubuck or smooth-finish leathers and fabric. Cleaner removes stubborn dirt and wax left by previous waterproofing applications; preps your boots for a fresh application of Nikwax treatment. Cleaner is formulated to retain leather's water repellency, unlike other cleaners that strip leather of its natural oils. Cleaner is recommended for Gore-Tex and SympaTex footwear. Water-based liquid wax restores water repellency to fabric and leather footwear. Wax contains mineral waxes, flexible polymers and tanning agents to condition and protect leather without over-softening or changing the fit. Gentle formula allows nubuck and suede textures to remain; will not flatten leather. Wax will darken and wax down leather and suede-test on inconspicuous spot first. Wax is recommended for Gore-Tex, SympaTex; and eVENT footwear.
