Nikwax Rug Proof adds Durable Water Repellency (DWR) whilst maintaining breathability. It is quick and easy to apply in the washing machine, and its DWR develops on air drying.

Nikwax Rug Proof™ leaves a flexible water repellent treatment on individual fibres, allowing moisture vapour to pass through, maintaining breathability, while protecting your animal from getting wet in the rain.

Finally, washing machine application ensures that the treatment goes right through the rug or coat, treating seams, tapes and cords, as well as the fabric.

Always check your washing machines maximum weight limit before washing rugs. For large items we recommend using a commercial laundromat.

Uses per bottle:

  • Approximately 500ml needed per rug
