How’s best to clean small dirt spots off a goretex jacket so no need to wash in nikwax in washing machine.

DaiSki, I just grab a handful of snow and rub, if it doesnt come off I leave it.

Anything, other than water will probably remove some of the DWR proofing Sad

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

@DaiSki, ...read Cack and Grime on 'Piste' - but if you do a local clean you can be reasonably aggressive and then use Nikwax spray-on - unlike Graingers aerosol (which is good, but environmentally less OK), Nikwax have a hand spray which is excellent. For oil based stains - eg the filth which can drop off a chair installation as you go underneath - I use a citrus cleaner dabbed on, and then sucked off with kitchen towel. Some will say that citrus cleaner is too aggressive, since petroleum-based, but I find it works well, if used carefully. The American Finish Line citrus cleaner is good.

Never tried this but in theory, glass cleaner, by it's nature is completely volatile, leaving no detergent residue, it might be worth trying as a spot cleaner, usual disclaimers apply😁

 Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.
