    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Nikwax Down Wash 2.0 - 10 oz. is rated 4.8333 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product I washed my down sleeping bag with this in the bathtub, and let it soak for about 10 minutes, then rinsed it out in the bathtub and put it in the dryer. However, it didn't fluff up much, unfortunately, so I tried to fix that. The directions said to rinse using the washing machine, so I decided to put it in the washing machine and maybe that would get out all the soap and fluff it up again. I have a top-load washing machine, so I put it on gentle cycle and added a tiny bit of regular detergent and put in my down sleeping bag. It went through the wash cycle and spin dry, and I think that got out all the soap. Then I put it in the dryer, on low, with some tennis balls, and when it came out, it was really fluffy, clean, and no odor. It looked new again. Very good product. A bit tricky to use since you have to wear gloves according to the directions, and have to make sure to rinse thoroughly with the washing machine to get out all the soap. And one bottle lasts for only a few loads, but it sure cleans great, and the loft of the sleeping bag was very good.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cleans great, but... I washed my down bag at a laundromat using a front loader, as everyone recommends, and the bag is clean, but now it has an odd smell. I'm surprised no other reviewers noticed this. I'm thinking of running the bag through a another water wash just to get rid of the smell. (It was dirty before, but not smelly, so definitely a downside of this product for me.) I used the recommended amount of product, but put it in both the soak and wash cycles, so don't recommend that to others.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from All I use I've been using Nikwax Down Wash for years. It's all I use to wash my down coats. I don't have a washing machine, so I just wash them by hand. I trust it to keep my down clothing in good condition.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product I used NikWax to clean a down-filled REI Sub Kilo 20 sleeping bag. I washed it in my bathtub, as recommended. The bag was quite dirty; NikWax took care of that nicely. The bag is now clean, and as good as new.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used as directed with good results I followed the instructions, and the sleeping bags came out clean and smelled good...not much more to say!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have been using this for years. As a very cold-blooded person who doesn't like to exercise indoors, I wear a lot of down. I've used Nikwax Down Wash for years, as it does a good job of cleaning my down jackets and insulators. My jackets look good for years.
