Wool-based clothing is a mainstay of the gear kit for many outdoor adventurers. For us, wool features highly in the clothing items we use. Storm Care, maker of cleaning and rejuvenation products for outdoor gear, have recognised this sector of the market and produced the Storm Merino and Wool Wash-in Cleaner as a dedicated product that makes specifically for wool fabrics. This technical cleaner is suitable for all woollen items to help improve water repellency and restore breathability.
From a usage perspective shake the bottle prior to use and pour 100 ml of the liquid (4 capfuls or 1/3 of the bottle) into the detergent compartment of your washing machine and wash following the manufacturer’s garment care guidelines. Typically outdoor wool clothing is best air dried but I’ve always taken the lazy approach and put them through the drier on a low heat – I realise this isn’t the best approach so I’m not suggesting you follow suit but it does save a lot of time.
Price wise at AUD$11.95 RRP this product is competitively priced for a wool specific cleaner and can often be found selling at a cheaper price. If you are only using this once or twice a year, then the cost won’t be a major impost.
As I have mentioned with other cleaning and rejuvenation products, I don’t use them for every wash but rather run all my clothing through an annual tech wash timed prior to a longer trip and I find its well worth the effort.
