Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy & convenient I bought this to wash my soft shell cycling jacket before reproofing with Rapha's product. Both products arrived on time with a sense of style and luxury to the packaging. The jacket came out nice and clean despite being washed repeatedly in normal detergent for a couple of years before trying this product. The bottle was a teeny bit leaky from being shaken around in the post but this didn't worry me as very little product had escaped and it's not unpleasant on the skin. There's enough to wash my jacket at least twice more which feels like money well spent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must for DWR kit I have used the Rapha Apparel Wash since it became available. I've used it in conjunction with the Rapha Apparel Re-proofer, and my pieces of DWR kit are in great shape, both functionally and in appearance. I see it as a way of protecting the kit I've invested on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unparalleled commitment to greatness! Rapha is undeniably in a league of their own when it comes to quality materials, superior craftsmanship, attention to detail, and cutting edge design. I wasn't just impressed; I was totally blown away! Finally, a company who truly gets the concept of upgrade and excellence! Bravo! My search for amazing cycling apparel is over.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does in actually work??? I'm not sure if it works to help with keeping the water repellent truthfully but I've bought into the gimmick so I'll continue. My ProTeam Softshell jacket does in fact keep the water out so perhaps its doing its duty

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Only for waterproof windproof apparels Might be my bad but I discovered lately that this product doesnt work for bibs and jerseys. However only time will tell about the efficiency of this product One point of progress is the quality of the material for the bottle. Sounds fragile. I will definitely not put that into any luggage.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Almost... To be honest I added this to my order to qualify for free shipping, and thought I'd give it a try. Two things I'm not a fan of - there is no scent. I was expecting my freshly laundered gear to smell like they'd been line-dried in the Alps...but nothing. Maybe that's a plus for you, but I'd like a nice mild scent. More importantly there are no instruction for use. How much should I be using? No idea. And the cap is not really designed to be used for measuring. It cleans, but I won't buy again.

Hi, Is this suitable for washing the women's Rapha core rain jacket? and if so after washing, does the jacket need an additional reproofing treatment? Thanks

Asked by: justine
Hi, this is suitable for all our products that can be washed. We do suggest to reproof garments that are water resistant or water proof to prolong the longevity of the waterproofing qualities.

What would you recommend for bib-shorts and jerseys?  Just plain old washing liquid or something more specific?

Asked by: skuser
This apparel wash will extend the life of your kit. Standard detergents, even non-bio's contain bleaching agents that will impact colour over time and perfumes leave residue that cause the fibers to retain moisture and bacteria

Can this be used to wash bibs and jerseys, or is it only for DWR/windproof fabrics?

Asked by: Ruffy
Hi, this is intended as a technical wash for DWR, windproof garments only.
