Step Three – Restoring Water Repellency:
Water repellency diminishes with repeated washing. If the garment is no longer beading water, it’s time to restore this feature.
There are two main methods to restore water repellency: spray-on or wash-in.
- Remove your garment from the machine and shake off excess water.
- Close all zippers.
- Hang the garment and spray the face fabric, focusing on high-wear areas.
- Turn the garment inside out to maximize the absorption by the face fabric before placing it in the dryer.
- Run an extra rinse cycle in your washing machine with the water-repellent agent.
- We recommend using Grangers® Performance Repel.
- Turn the garment inside out for maximum absorption by the face fabric before placing it in the dryer.
Step Four – Drying:
Place your damp garment in the dryer on low heat (below 40°C/104°F) for 15 to 20 minutes or until dry to the touch. This helps activate the water repellency effectively.
Which detergent to use?
Whenever possible, opt for a neutral liquid detergent or a detergent specifically formulated for functional clothing. Avoid fabric softeners, cold cleaning agents, or bleach. Grangers® Performance Wash is recommended for maintaining your Open Wear X-pore garment.
