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.

Otter Wax large bar

I have tried multiple liquid or semi-liquid items for re-proofing my coats but I like the Otter Wax the best. I generally run coat in a cold rinse only cycle in the Spring then air dry. The bar makes it easy to rub the wax in then I use a hair dryer to finish up, ready for the next foul weather. The odor is way less than some other products and the wax seems to protect very well. I wear a hooded caped overcoat all winter and I have not had problems with stiffness either. I highly recommend this product.

Otter was worked great on my Fjallraveb G1000 pants but application process was labor intensive.
