Shameless Product Endorsement — Revivex Fabric Treatment

Post by blogger | May 20, 2006      

I picked up some Revivex fabric treatment a while back. My outerwear stayed in pretty good shape this winter, so no reason to use the stuff till springtime, when dirt and grime get worked in to the fabric and water stops beading up on the surface like it should. I followed the directions and treated my favorite hardshell pants and jacket, as well as a synthetic puffy. While I’m not certain this at-home treatment matches “factory,” it seems to work. Only glitch was figuring out the controls on the washing machine so I could do a soak followed by a spin, rather than a rinse cycle that washed all the Revivex from the fabric before I could transfer it to the dryer for the recommended 60 minute cure at medium heat. Using a computer is easy compared to a modern washing machine…

All my treated garments are now clean as new, and resist wet-out quite nicely. The puffy is just nylon ripstop with no waterproof-breathable membrane, but even it is somewhat shower proof and easily resists splashes (or tea spills). My take: give it a try.

    McNett makes pretty quality products. Seam Grip is another of theirs that is great for sealing seams, doing fabric repairs, etc.

    The reason i ask is because i work for an office furniture compamy and we make Fabric screen, so this product could be of great interest to me!
