The Grangers Clothing Care Kit is an all-in-one protection package designed to clean, care for, and protect all technical clothing and outerwear.
Grangers Clothing Care Kit is a complete product protection package designed to make caring for all technical garments and outerwear as easy as possible. Each kit contains one bottle of Performance Wash, one bottle of Performance Repel, and a free one-shot sample of Active Wash.
While washing your outdoor and technical clothing in regular laundry detergents might leave garments looking clean, it can be disastrous for their performance. Regular detergents tend to leave various chemical residues behind that can inhibit the technical features your gear posseses - features such as enhanced breathability, or water-repellency. What's more, these residues can make future water-repellent treatments you apply less effective - the formulation tends to stick to the dirt particles rather than the fabric, and are more easily washed away by rain as a result.
Fortunately, Grangers Performance Wash and Performance Repel can help. Performance Wash has been designed to work with the specialist materials that make up your technical garments, and removes dirt and eliminates odours while preventing harmful residue build-up. Grangers Performance Repel, meanwhile, restores the water-repellent finish to your garments, leaving you fully protected outdoors. Based on an environmentally responsible fluorocarbon-free technology, both Performance Wash and Performance Repel are suitable for use on all types of technical clothing and equipment, including those with Gore-Tex® and eVent linings.
Grangers Active Wash is a high-performance wash-in cleaner designed to remove dirt, sweat, and odours from all sportswear. Effective at the low temperatures favoured by active and sportswear, Active Wash is designed to restore your kit to its original levels of performance. Unlike Performance Wash, it maximises your garments wicking potential, and is unsuitable for use as a pre-wash for reproofing.
If you have invested in a good waterproof jacket, you will want to make sure it will last as long as it possibly can. To do that you need to make sure you care for your jacket, from how you store it, what you wash it in and how you dry it.
The Performance Wash is a gentle wash-in cleaner, free from the perfumes, optical brighteners and heavy cleaning agents found in regular laundry detergents. These are the things that can damage your jackets, reducing it's ability to repel water.
The Performance Repel is fluorocarbon-free spray-on waterproofing treatment, based on Grangers’ unique Acrylic Polymer Technology. APT provides a highly breathable finish while maintaining excellent water-repellency and durability.
The pack comes with a small sample of Grangers Active Wash which is a wash in cleaner designed to remove dirt, sweat and odours from your sportswear fabrics including Lycra, polyester, cotton and merino wool. It will also reduce drying times and improve wicking properties.
