Owning a down sleeping bag or high performance down apparel includes facing the dilemma of cleaning your bag or clothes without jeopardizing the loft and insulation. Standard laundry detergents leave residues and can damage the structure of the down fill. Thankfully, Nikwax Down Wash is designed to come to the rescue!
Down Wash prolongs the life and performance of down sleeping bags and apparel by revitalizing loft and, in turn, enhancing the down's insulating abilities. Not only does Down Wash not leave any destructive residue, it actually helps to remove residue left behind by any previous washing done with standard laundry detergents. Suitable for use on all fabrics and textiles, Down Wash helps to maintain breathability and water-repellency.
Environmentally-friendly and non-hazardous, Down Wash is easy to apply and can be used in standard washing machines. The 10 oz (300 ml) bottle of Down Wash is adequate to provide two cleanings of an adult sleeping bag.

Zoomify would go here, or a larger image... This is a temporary placeholder... The settup of this may change depending on whether we are in fact using Zoomify.
Rotate SWF would go here... Greg will reconfigure this after we have an actual example. This is just a place holder.
