For REV'IT textile cleaning, it should be shell only with all liners and armor removed (Elbow, Shoulder, Back). The Gore-Tex Liner should not be washed with any detergents or cleaners and only wiped with damp cloth, water only. The Exkin liner can be hand washed, cold water, with a light detergent and hung dry separately. For NikWax treatment, we have found the Direct Spray-On
to be the best as application is a breeze. Let us know if you have any other questions. - Patrick

At this point, I only need to clean the outer shell. I see the instructions on your site here
. Is this for all components, including the Gore-tex and Exskin liners?
So NIKWAX Tech Wash in the tub used for soaking/washing.
Which NIKWAX product is used for the second step below? Is it the NIKWAX TX.DIRECT Spray-on?
The garment should then be hanged to dry and re-proofed with Nikwax for DWR (Durable Water Repellency) purposes.
