    gore/tex coats

    Hi I have washed my coat 5/6 times now and find the best way is ,verey little soap powder and rins out 2 times in clean water ,any detergent left in the coat will let the rain in

      You can get the proper detergent and proofing stuff from Millets or Blacks. You need Nikwax Tech Wash to clean the goretex and Nikwax TX.Direct wash-in to proof it. I know people just wash the goretex in normal detergant but this stuff is what is recommended and it works.

      Don't forget to follow the instructions on the Nikwax and on the wash lable in the garments.

          The nikwax tech wash is dissolved pure soap,so use pure soap flakes dissolved in hot water.

              I always just shove mine in the normal washing and it comes out fine.

                Another tip (from goretex themselves) is to tumble dry it, it is good for the goretex apparently.
