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

First time waxing a garment, won't be the last!

What a great product! My 18month old needed a waterproof jacket for our outdoor adventures here in the PNW. My husband had the idea that I sew her a jacket and then wax it myself. I probably spent more time making and waxing her jacket than she will spend wearing it but it was a great introduction to waxing garments. My husband has requested his own, handwaxed jacket.
The fabric dressing is easy to apply, just a bit messy and time consuming. I'm not sure when my husband will get his jacket, might be a while before I work up the courage to undertake such a large project but when I do I will use this product again!

Great product & fast shipping - Happy and dry!

Otter wax is great, they have helpful tutorials on their website and the product is easy to use! Happy I will stay weatherproof and dry when it rains in the Pacific Northwest this winter.

Took AVERAGE to SUPERIOR!

I took a western carharrt coat I have had for years and made it water repellant and made it look fantastic.
I ended up using 4 pints to complete the coat. Otter Wax has a great aroma that no one has mentioned. I used a heat gun and brush with the Otter Wax liquefied.
