    3. With a little mild soap, gently massage the spotted surface.
    4. Rinse with a sponge and cold water. Let the bag air dry.

  • Never wash your bag in the washing machine.
  • Never use warm or hot water to clean it.
  • Never have it dry cleaned
  • Never use detergent, solvent or starch.
  • Do not leave waxed canvas goods in a hot place, such as a car in the sun. heat will ruin the waxed finish of the bag



    Re-finishing:

    Depending on how much hard use your bag gets, at some point the finish may start to wear off and you may consider re-waxing it. You can do this yourself, if you're up to it

    • Use Otter Wax or Martexin Wax, or an approved product, made for this purpose, only.
    • Bag should be clean and dry.
    • Lay as flat as possible using a table or ironing board, and put down paper or some kind of protective barrier underneath, to help with the mess.
    • Using a soft cloth or your gloved fingers to apply the wax, rub down the entire bag as evenly as possible.
    • If the wax isn’t pliable enough, warm it slightly by submerging the container in warm water.
    • Once you have covered the bag completely and evenly, warm up the wax to impregnate the fibers. There is a number of ways to do this, you can leave in the sun for a short time, you can use a hair dryer or heat gun, or you can use an iron, with a piece of waxed paper in between iron and fabric.
