The camping season is not far away and as the weather improves, people will start to think about dusting down their tents and planning their outdoor adventures. But they need to care appropriately for their equipment in order to prolong the life and use of it.

Ultraviolet light (UV) will damage the synthetic fabric used on tents, leading to a reduction in the fabric tear strength, whilst dirt on the fabrics will damage the water repellency. Within just two weeks of constant exposure to sunlight a tent can lose up to half of its fabric strength, whilst the inner coatings can be subject to mildew.

Nikwax Tent & Gear Solarwash is a water-based cleaning spray, which has been formulated to protect tents, and other synthetic outdoor equipment, against UV light and effectively doubling the life of the equipment.


If the equipment is fairly new, then cleaning with Tent & Gear SolarWash will not only remove dirt and other contaminants, but will add UV protection and revitalise the water repellency. Plus, it can be used up to three times before reproofing is required!

If the equipment is older, worn, or dirty, then after cleaning with Tent & Gear SolarWash, the item(s) can be reproofed with Nikwax Tent & Gear SolarProof, which will add a durable water repellent coating to the entire fabric. The user can remain nice and dry in their tent, whilst prolonging the lifespan of their gear.
