You'll never wear out your base layers as long as you have the Base Fresh conditioner from Nikwax. Nikwax has created the Base Fresh so that you can wash and condition your base layers without damaging the elements that keep you warm and dry. Don't think that all detergents are the same especially if your norm is leaving you freezing on top of the mountain. Trust Nikwax's Base Fresh to always keep you at the top of your game.


  • To keep base layers functioning properly, care must be taken when washing. Using conventional household detergents or fabric conditioners can impair wicking properties by causing the fabric to retain moisture. This leads to reduced wicking capabilities and slow drying of the fabric. Over time a build up of bacteria and body oils, especially in synthetic base layers, can lead to them smelling. If using conventional detergents or fabric conditioners, odors will not be adequately removed. Instead, they are masked by perfumes which fail quickly, leaving you with smelly base layers!

  • Once your base layer has been used a few times and is starting to smell, clean it with a standard detergent in your regular laundry and use Nikwax BaseFresh to deodorize, freshen, soften, and enhance drying and cooling. Always apply this product to used base layers, socks, sports gear and travel clothing to keep them in perfect condition.

  • Nikwax BaseFresh is fantastic if you only have a few dirty base layers and want to clean them in a regular laundry load, while maintaining their technical attributes.
    However, if you have a full load of base layers, Nikwax BaseWash or Nikwax Wool Wash can be used to both clean and condition, without the need for additional detergents

  • Nikwax BaseFresh refreshes your base layers by deodorizing and maintains freshness by preventing odor build up when in use.

  • Nikwax BaseFresh enhances and revitalizes the wicking properties of base layers and everyday clothing, increasing breathability. This helps the fabric to spread sweat, dry quickly, and keep you more comfortable in all conditions.

  • Nikwax BaseFresh treated fabrics are more resistant to stains and day-to-day soiling. Should soiling occur, fabrics treated with Nikwax BaseFresh are easier to clean.

  • Nikwax BaseFresh allows base layers to be cleaned with standard laundry using conventional detergents, removing the need for a separate wash.

  • Nikwax BaseFresh allows the use of aggressive detergents and cleaners to remove stubborn stains, such as chain oil, without compromising the performance of base layers.

  • Nikwax takes great care to minimize the effect of Nikwax products on the environment and on you, the consumer. All Nikwax conditioning products are WaterBased, non-flammable, non-hazardous, biodegradable, environmentally friendly, and contain no volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
