    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

Getting Nikwax off?

    Arrgh help me SFers :eek:

    ... if you can.

    I have a jacket I like. It's Etaproof. Was getting a bit non-proof / shaggy, so I contacted the cloth maker. They recommended I reproof it using Nikwax, and I followed the instructions.

    The jacket went horribly (and unevenly) shiny. Furthermore, it developed a stickiness so that it collects every single bit of lint, dust and fluff around making it look incredibly scruffy.

    The clothing maker then suggested washing it once without any treatment to try and get some of the wax out. It's better, but still pretty unevenly shiny and still very sticky. And to add insult to injury, the three-wash treatment seems to have damaged the fibres - I can see 'tufts' on the sleeve seams now.

    In other words, it's kinda effed.

    Is there a way of bringing it back?
