Before applying

Products

Härkila Waterproofing Fabric Care. Waterproofing spray for all fabrics including synthetic surfaces. Water repellent and softening with integrated odor neutralizer and protection against UV damage.

INSIDE CARE

  • Remove dirt and stones from the inside and let the footwear dry in open air
  • To avoid odour clean the inside of your footwear. This does not damage the lining
  • The GORE-TEX® lining can be cleaned using a soft sponge and clean in lukewarm water. Do not use hot water
  • Footwear without GORE-TEX® dries faster with stuffed paper inside. Do not use paper to dry GORE-TEX® footwear
  • Remove the footbed, clean it if needed and let it air dry. Make sure to re-insert the footbed correctly

Storage

  • Store your footwear at living room temperature with dry air and air circulation.
  • Do NOT store
  • On heated floors
  • Close to open fire
  • In direct sunlight
  • On a radiator or a similar heating device
  • Lying down

What not to do

  • Do not wash your footwear in a washing machine
  • Do not dry your footwear while it is lying down or under pressure. Always dry in an upright position
  • We do not recommend that the zip is open during use, as this can break the zippers and make the rubber gusset crack
  • Do not let your footwear dry in areas with no air circulation – e.g. inside plastic bags or moist rooms
  • Direct sunlight should be avoided
  • Do not dry your Härkila footwear in hot places – e.g. by an open fire, on a radiator, by a heating oven or on a heated floor
  • Do not use soap as it damages the protective layer
  • Avoid contact with fuels/oils, waste liquids, manure and salt water. If your footwear has been in contact with any of these substances, wash and rinse with fresh water
