Revitalizing Gore-Tex Rain Gear?

I have a couple Zero Restriction Goretex rain suits that I would like to maintain properly. Yesterday I went and purchased Nikwax Tech Wash wash-in cleaner and Nikwax TX Direct Wash-in DWR.  I know you wash first and then apply the DWR. My question is how many times can you wash Goretex gear before you have to re-apply the DWR?  I've had both rain suits about 5 years and in the past would wash them about three times a year with mild liquid detergent (Tide Free and Gentle) and use Nikwax spray-on DWR once a year.  Honestly I tend to wear the jackets more as windbreakers then actually play during a rain.  The rain pants and hat are only used during a rain. Thanks for comments.

I honestly don't know. Aren't there instructions included with the cleaner or the original garment? Other than that, I don't know what to tell you other than wash in cold water and baking soda!

I spray with starch. Lasts a couple of rounds as a rain-resistant fix. (College kids used to heavy starch jeans before going skiing; couldn't afford anything else!) Best, -Marv
