You should wash your G-1000 garments in 40°C. After two-three washes the wax will be completely washed out of the garment. (Clothes made from a combination of G-1000 and other fabrics should be washed in accordance with the washing instructions in each garment.)
Washing the wax out of a garment is practical if you are going to wear the garment in a warm climate, for example during the summer or on a trip to the tropics.
Without wax, moisture is efficiently released through the fabric and the body remains comfortably dry.
Reapply the impregnation after washing
You do not need to add wax after every wash, but after two-three washes the garment will need to be re-impregnated to retain its wind and water resistant properties.
Washing with other clothing
The wax does not affect other garments in the machine, so you can wash waxed garments with other clothing without any problem. However, you should wash similar colours together – just like always.
Re-activating the wax
If you have washed a garment once and it feels like the wax has sunken into the garment, you can re-activate the wax by hanging the garment in a warm drying cabinet or ironing it on low heat. The heat will draw the wax out of the fibres and you will feel the difference when you take the garment out of the drying cabinet.
