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

Your customer service representative gave me detailed instructions on how to use the wax on cloth. I’m very pleased with the product and customer service. Additionally, delivery on both of my orders arrived quickly. Thanks, Willard

Great product

I used the solid otter wax bar and the heat activated dressing. I found that the bar was much harder to use, but I believe it did a better job on the fabric than the dressing. I was sloppy with the dressing and used it up very quickly. Next time I will devote more time to the project and use only the otter wax bars

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!
