FAQ

 

What's the difference between your Wax Bars and Fabric Dressing?

Our Wax Bars are excellent for one-sided waxing because it creates a seal on the top layer of the fabric. It’s ideal for hats, shoes, and gloves, where you wouldn’t want waxed fabric in direct contact with your skin. Our bars are also great for quickly re-proofing factory waxed and oiled garments. Our Fabric Dressing is melted down when applied, thus permeating deeper into the fabric and yielding a more factory-waxed appearance. This is ideal for multi-layered coats and jackets, or for re-proofing factory-oiled fabrics.

I've applied Otter Wax, how long do I have to wait before I can use my item?

We recommend allowing freshly waxed items to cure in a warm and dry place for 24-72 hours before use. Lower temperatures and higher humidity will often extend the amount of time it takes for a waxed item to cure and the light tack subside. Heavy application of our wax may also contribute to longer cure time, so we recommend starting off with a light coat of wax and adding more if desired.

On what types of fabric can I use Otter Wax?

Our Fabric Wax and Fabric Dressing will work on most any type of fabric. Because our wax is made from all-natural ingredients, it will generally bond best with natural fibers (cotton, hemp, etc., however it is also very effective on blended fabrics where the proportion of natural fiber to synthetic is in the majority.

Bought the large bar and waxed a pair of canvas pants. Love it!

The happiest of happy campers here.

Great, great product that totally delivered not only as expected (and promised) but above and beyond. This was my first time using any kind of fabric wax, and I was prepared for a somewhat steep learning curve. On the contrary: the product is easy to apply, easy to manipulate, and produces excellent results. I'm a client for life.

Performed as described. Easy to use and gave the canvas pants and coat a antiqued look. Waterproofing is awesome. Will definitely be ordering again in the future.

I received the wax a day earlier than normal and put it to work a few days later. It's fairly labor-intensive to wax an entire jacket, but the only real note I have about the stuff is that it's difficult to get an even finish, which leads to ripples and creases on the outside of the garment. Some people, including myself, enjoy that look, but other folks may not.

Haven't really been in a spot whereby the water-repellant properties have been tested yet, but so far it has held up well otherwise!
