Nikwax basewash, 09 March 2016
By hill addict (Birmingham)
Great stuff for both machine and hand washing. Does what it claims to do. Especially helps quick drying. Love the smell! Who wants to smell like a packet of detergent? Only problem is, why do so few Premier retailers stock it??

Posh Wash, 26 April 2012
By GM (Yorkshire)
Six (50ml) machine washes to a bottle so not too bad value if you wash all your base layers and socks together. It is designed to clean wicking base layers and non waterproofed fabrics only so dont use it on waterproof gear or it may affect the proofing. It does this job well and claims to revitalise the wicking properties of the fabric, It does have a slightly unusual smell a bit like soapy rose petals.
Worth packing a bottle for handwashing your T shirts, socks and underwear on longer camping trips etc.
For waterproof gear use the Techwash stuff.

Good Cleaning Stuff, 31 December 2010
By Dom (London)
This stuff works pretty well - its simple to use and seems to clean you waterproof gear without causing damage. One improvement I would like would be for it to leave a better smell. Don't get me wrong it doesn't make you clothes smell bad they just don't smell of the usual washing detergent smell you get when you wash your normal clothes.
