how to care for waxed canvas
Waxed canvas is a very durable fabric that requires minimal care. Gently brush away dirt and dust. Use only cool water and a damp cloth, do not use warm/hot water. If it's a stubborn stain, try using a soft brush and if needed a mild bar or flake soap. Waxed canvas products can be used for many years without washing.
**DO NOT PUT IN THE WASHING MACHINE OR DRY CLEAN. NEVER USE DETERGENT.**
Some people choose to re-wax their products yearly in order to maintain its resistance to water and dirt. You can purchase wax products in bar form or in a tin. Apply the wax in an even coat, really work it in the fabric and pay special attention to seams and stitch line. Apply a heat source such direct sunlight, hair dryer or heat gun. The wax should fully melt into the fabric, allow to air dry for 24-48 hours.
