FAQ

What materials is GoDRY suitable for?

GoDRY® is suitable for any absorbent natural or synthetic fabric, including suede and nubuck.

Does GoDRY maintain breathability?

Yes, GoDRY® will maintain the breathability of the fabric it is applied to. It will not block the air gaps in the fabric meaning that air and water vapour can circulate freely.

What other items can I protect with GoDRY?

GoDRY® will work on any absorbent fabric and can be used to protect a range of surfaces, from shoes to apparel and upholstery. Our new GoDRY® 360 range incorporates market-leading continuous 360 degree spray technology making the treatment of larger areas, such as coats, sofas and car upholstery, much easier than traditional trigger sprays. Other items that people commonly protect are bags, suits, shirts and dresses.

Can GoDRY be used to protect leather?

GoDRY® is primarily designed to protect absorbent fabrics, such as canvas, suede and nubuck. Nevertheless, GoDRY® can improve the repellency of leather but the level of repellency will be less than on more absorbent fabrics and we advise re-applying after polishing or treating the leather.

Please also note that any other products used to coat and treat leather, such as waxes and polishes, can prevent GoDRY® bonding effectively to the material. A sponge or clean cloth can be used to aid in spreading GoDRY® evenly and to remove any excess.

Is GoDRY only suitable for new shoes/fabrics?

GoDRY® can be applied to both new and worn shoes and fabrics, as long as they are clean and free of any existing coatings or dust and dirt. It is important that the shoes are clean so that GoDRY® can bond effectively with the fabric.

Does GoDRY alter the look or feel of the shoe/fabric?

GoDRY® is specifically designed to not alter the look or feel of the fabric it is applied to. However, we do always advise testing on an inconspicuous area before application.

When should I reapply GoDRY?

We only advise reapplying GoDRY® to high wear areas if repellency reduces, or following abrasive cleaning and the use of detergents / cleaning agents on the material.

Will my shoes/fabrics become resistant to all stains?

GoDRY® acts as a first line of defence against stains. Providing you keep your shoes/fabrics well maintained and treat stains appropriately, GoDRY® will keep them looking cleaner for longer. We cannot guarantee that you will never get a stubborn stain but GoDRY® will help to prevent and reduce staining.

Will my shoes become completely waterproof?

GoDRY® will improve the water repellency of the fabric but an important feature of our coating is that it maintains breathability. This means that water can still pass between air gaps in the material and between the fibres of the shoe. GoDRY® will make your shoes more water repellent and resistant to water ingress but it will not make them completely waterproof.

How do I treat stains?

Our advice is always to treat stains as soon as possible. The faster you treat stains the easier they are to remove. For liquid stains we advise using clean luke-warm (not hot) water to rinse the stain from the material. For dried on / persistent stains we would advise using a cleaning agent in line with the footwear manufacturers guidelines and to work stains inwardly to avoid spreading.

After using any cleaning agents we would advise re-testing repellency and to re-apply GoDRY® to any areas where repellency has been reduced. We do not advise putting your shoes in the washing machine unless stated by the manufacturer.

How long does it last?

Once applied, GoDRY® is extremely stable. Therefore, providing your footwear is well maintained, we only advise one application. You can test the repellency by placing a few drops of water on the material, if this repellency reduces we would first advise brushing your shoes with a soft brush to remove any dust and dried-on dirt. If you still experience reduced repellency then we would advise reapplying to the affected area.

Should I reapply GoDRY after washing the fabric?

Yes, we would advise checking repellency after washing your GoDRY® protected items and re-applying after using a washing machine, for example. Rinsing away stains will not reduce the effectiveness of the coating and hand-washing may cause less reduction in repellency than using a washing machine or dry cleaning service.

Can I still iron GoDRY protected fabrics such as shirts?

Yes, GoDRY® is resistant to temperatures of over 400 degrees so ironing your GoDRY® protected fabric is not a problem.

What is the shelf life of GoDRY?

The shelf life for an unopened container is up to 2 years. Once opened the product should be used within months and stored in a dry, cool place.
