Dry Idea

October 1, 2007

Rain, rain, go away,
Come again after laundry day!

Or more specifically, the day after using Granger’s waterproofing solution to restore your jacket’s water repellency. Easy to use, it’s as simple as throwing your outerwear in the washer, adding a capful of Granger’s (in lieu of traditional detergent) and tumble dry to finish. And voila, it’s as good as new!

Originally established in 1937, Granger’s has been waterproofing outdoor gear and clothing for decades. In fact according to mountaineering legend, it’s said that Sir Edmund Hilary, the first person to summit Mt. Everest, used Granger’s during his expedition.

Fast forward seventy years and Granger’s expanded line includes formulations to waterproof leather, Gore-tex, soft-shells, and even natural fibers like cotton and wool. Other products to love include their collection of “detergents” specially formulated for technical garments that eliminates nasty stains and odors while restoring their breathability and moisture wicking properties.

Extra bonus, Granger’s solutions are water-based and environmentally friendly so your conscience will be as clean as your gear.

Otherwise, it would be a real….damper.
