Do not use any detergent for cleaning and washing of ropes.
Tendon Rope Cleaner is a highly effective detergent for safe and thorough washing of ropes in washing machines as well as by hand. It does not damage the rope in any way and in addition the rope is ageing more slowly and is easier to use after washing and proper drying.
If you buy a new static rope and a situation occurs that you have to use it in a wet environment, we recommend you to wash the new rope before the first use. This way you will remove greasy additives (used during production of PA fibre) that would get released from the rope on the first contact with moisture.
