Updated for 2015, Gear Cleaner is all you need to clean anything, including footwear, without the need for a washing machine. A high performance spray cleaner that cleans and removes odours without aggressively attacking the DWR fisnishes found on a lot of technical gear. Use to clean footwear prior to wasxing or spray proofing. Perfect for removing patches of dirt from waterproof clothing that doesn't justify a full machine wash. Cleaning backpacks, sleeping bags, tents ... you'll wonder what you did without it. And yes it does work well on carpets!
