How does Repellar ™ work?
Which materials can Repellar ™ be applied on?
Repellar ™ is effective on all fabrics and suede. IMPORTANT NOTE. Repellar ™ is not as effective or durable on smooth leather.
How many pairs of footwear does one order of Repellar ™ product work on?
One order of Repellar ™ will allow you to cover two pairs of footwear.
How do I apply Repellar ™?
Step 1 – Ensure the footwear is clean.
Step 2 – Take any laces out of the footwear.
Step 3 - Give the Repellar ™ sachet a snip in one corner and pour the contents into the 100ml empty bottle.
Step 4 – Fill the bottle with water but leave a little space – don't fill it right to the top. Give the Repellar ™ liquid and water a vigorous shake for 20 seconds.
Step 5 – Spray the contents of the bottle on your footwear and massage into the material. Soak the entire footwear completely with the solution.
Step 6 – Allow 3 hours for the protective layer to act and dry. The footwear should feel 100% dry before you start the heat treatment with a hair dryer.
Step 7 - Begin the heat treatment on your footwear with a blast with a hair dryer all over.
IMPORTANT NOTE* The temperature of a hair dryer is often higher than that of a standard dryer, so please be careful. The hair dryer also only heats a small area at a time, so make sure you warm the entire surface area of the footwear. It’s best to blow dry in sections, making sure you’re not holding the hair dryer closer than roughly ten centimeters to the footwear.
Can I use Repellar ™ on my hat?
Yes, Repellar is effective on all fabrics. Follow the same instructions as with the application to footwear.
Will Repellar ™ effect the breathability of my footwear?
No, Repellar ™ has no effect on the functionality of the footwear.
My footwear has a hole in it, will Repellar ™ still work?
Yes, it will cover the rest of the footwear. Please follow the application instructions.
What is the shelf life of Repellar ™?
Once the liquid has been mixed with water the shelf life of the product is 48 hours
Can I wash my footwear once Repellar ™ has been applied and activated?
Yes, you can. One of the most unique aspects of Repellar™ is that the footwear can be hand or machine washed up to ten times, depending on the fabric. For machine washing we advise selecting the ‘Eco Wash Program’ to save the planet and your kicks as well.
IMPORTANT NOTE* Please ensure that all footwear is treated with heat again after washing, as described in the instructions.
How long will Repellar ™ last after I have applied it to my footwear?
Repellar™ is extremely durable, however, its effectiveness can be diminished by excessive wear and tear and/or depending on how often the footwear are worn or washed. We recommend reapplying Repellar™ every 6 months, but durability will ultimately depend on individual usage.
