Durable care for outdoor equipment
To ensure that outdoor clothing and equipment can remain in use for a long time, the right care is crucial. The cleaning and impregnation products from ATSKO preserve and protect the fabric - and nature, too.
The outdoor season has begun - hikers, trail runners, bikers, campers and many others are now drawn back out into nature. To make sure that functional clothing and gear are optimally prepared for every situation, they should be regularly cleaned, cared for and impregnated, especially when the waterproofing starts to wear off or dirt stains affect the fabric.
Thorough cleaning and care at the end of the season also ensure that the outdoor equipment survives storage in the basement or attic undamaged and can develop its full performance again next year.

For almost 90 years, the US manufacturer ATSKO has been developing sustainable products for the most extreme outdoor challenges. ATSKO stands for moisture protection as well as waterproofing and conditioning agents for shoes, clothing and outdoor accessories that maintain functionality and extend service life. Thanks to their natural ingredients, ATSKO products are sustainable and protect nature.

ATSKO is best known for three brands in particular: SNO-SEAL® Bees Wax is used to care for and protect leather shoes and leather products and is based on natural beeswax. SILICONE WATER-GUARD® spray protects functional textiles and equipment from moisture and wear and is breathable. Since 1982, SPORT-WASH© has become the leading detergent for high-performance sportswear and functional clothing.

All products are also available in practical travel sizes that can be easily taken on tour or on vacation.

Care and impregnation for leather

Environmentally friendly care made from natural beeswax for all kind of leather shoes:
SNO-SEAL® Bees Wax makes all smooth leather waterproof, extremely durable and long-lasting.
When the wax dries after application, it forms a nourishing, protective layer. As a naturally gentle agent, it does not clog the pores of the leather, maintains breathability and is therefore also well suited for shoes with membranes. The leather can renew itself and remains soft and smooth even at low temperatures.


Environmentally friendly impregnation for all textiles.

SILICONE WATER-GUARD® offers maximum water and stain protection after just one application. The fabric remains soft and breathable, and its service life is significantly extended.
The protective layer of 13% silicone lets water and dirt roll off the fabric and helps the fibers to renew themselves. Silicone Water-Guard® contains cross-linked polymers, is CFC-free and protects the environment.
For all functional textiles, suede and smooth leather. Recommended by the leading membrane manufacturers.


Detergent for all functional textiles

SPORT-WASH® cleans all washable fabrics thoroughly and without leaving any residue.
In the process, the natural coconut-based detergent gently removes even the most stubborn stains. Unlike other cleaners, Sport-Wash does not use bleaching agents or fragrances and is therefore particularly mild and suitable even for sensitive skin.
Sport-Wash washes cotton and wool as well as functional textiles and membranes.
SPORT-WASH® MOUNTAIN is especially suitable for functional clothing with down filling.
