For several years, I have washed my motorcycle textile gear using Nikwax products from REI. When my Lombard needs cleaning, I will use Nikwax on it as well.
I clean the gear first using a mild liquid detergent and then use the Nikwax TX Direct Wash In Waterproofer. I have used Granger's combined product: one step wash and waterproofer and did not have as good results as the Nikwax products.
