Synthetic base layers are designed to be worn next to the skin, providing user comfort by maintaining body temperature and controlling moisture. The fabrics used are highly wicking (they will spread moisture out over a large area), fast drying and breathable. It is therefore essential to maintain these properties when caring for base layers.
Once your base layer has been used a few times and is starting to smell, wash it with Nikwax BaseWash® to deodorise, freshen, soften, and enhance drying and cooling. Always apply this base layer wash to used synthetic base layers, socks, sports kit and travel clothing to keep them in perfect condition.
