Description

Nikwax Rug Proof

Wash-in waterproofing for canvas and synthetic horse rugs. Ideal for Gore-Tex® and New Zealand rugs.

Your animal is most likely to get clammy and uncomfortable in wet or damp conditions if the breathability of their waterproof rug or coat is impaired. If the outer fabric absorbs water, the rug/coat can lose up to 70% of its breathability. Therefore, the Durable Water Repellency (DWR) on the outer fabric of your animal rug/coat must be maintained to ensure comfort. It will eventually wear off and need to be renewed with Nikwax Rug Proof™.

Wouldn't be without it is so handy that it can be put through the washing machine. I have used this for a couple of years now and it is on a rug for a 29yr old shetland pony - she is out in all weathers and absolutely BONE DRY no matter how wet it has been
