Nikwax, the global leader in safe, high performance aftercare for outdoor gear, announces BaseFresh. This revolutionary product from Nikwax is a deodorising wash-in conditioner for use in combination with standard household detergents. New BaseFresh is designed to deodorise and accelerate the drying time of all next-to-skin base layers used by outdoor enthusiasts, runners, and other active people.

After use and over time, technical base layers can lose their wicking performance and can stink. Regular detergents can be very aggressive cleaners, which are sometimes needed, but they can leave base layers with poor wicking performance, contributing to odour build-up. Added to the laundry load via the fabric softener tray, BaseFresh conditioner deodorises, speeds up drying and keeps technical garments fresh and cool. BaseFresh-treated fabrics are also more resistant to stains and day-to-day soiling, and are easier to get clean once stained.
