Otter Wax

Heat-Activated Fabric Dressing

$19.95

Our Heat-Activated Fabric Dressing comes in a large 1/2-pint tin and provides enough wax to tackle those bigger projects. This item is perfect for those folks looking to achieve a more matte or ‘factory-waxed’ appearance. 

1/2 Pint  |  Made in Portland, Oregon

 

Additional Info

Our Fabric Dressing is perfect for waterproofing unwaxed items, but it’s also a great option for those that want to use an all-natural wax treatment to re-waterproof their factory-waxed and oiled jackets. Applies easily when melted with a natural-bristle paint brush, soft cloth, and some elbow grease.

Instructions

The application process contains a few more steps than our wax bars, but the extra effort yields fantastic results. Applying hot wax penetrates deep into fabrics and dramatically reduces cure time.

  • place tin in 1.5" cool water
  • use heating element to simmer until melted
  • apply with a brush or lint-free cloth
  • use only as much wax as can be absorbed
  • rub into fabric with fingers for uniformity
  • allow 24~48 hours for wax to cure
  • remove spot stains with Canvas Cleaner
  • deodorize with Odor Eliminator

Heat Treated Wax review from Colorado

I came across this product by pure luck, I was looking for clean wax products that are sustainable and work. It's wonderful stuff, definitely takes much longer to get to the liquid state than I had thought; however that's just my impatience. It smells great, I did find that stirring it with a take-out chopstick helped and applying it with the cloth helped a lot over the brush option. Rub it hard and use a wood scraper to distribute. I would recommend including a photo of the product for size refence, some reviews seem to not understand volume. This isn't a giant pail of wax; but waste not want not; it goes further than you think.

Easy to apply

......not quite enough when covering a new denim jacket.

Terrific Cedar Smell

The fabric dressing was a bit tedious and somewhat messy before I got the hang of it. Finally, I settled on using a heating iron to set the wax in after it set up on the surface of my canvas backpack. The end result is stellar! Water beads up and rolls right off of my hunting pack now.....but the best part is the outdoor cedar smell! It is divine. It is awesome!!

Only stuff I’ll ever use!

I’ve been using otter wax for as long as they’ve been around, never tried anything else because I’ve always gotten the results and waxed protection I needed and expected from this company. I’ve applied to everything that needs a good weatherproofing, from my canvas riding jacket to my waterfowl hunting gear and always the same results, even when the weather isn’t.

Hi Marco! Thank you for your support, we're so happy to hear that you've enjoyed using our products for so long. We'll keep doing all that we can to deliver great products!
