Most waxed cotton garments will need refinishing at some point, depending on the frequency of use. Uneven, shiny or dry areas, or where moisture no longer beads, is a good indicator to rewax those specific areas. On top of prolonging the life of your apron, rewaxing will also revive the fabric color and bring back a uniform look. It is not necessary to rewax the entire garment unless the entire wax finish has been jeopardized.
- Be sure that the garment is clean and dry
- Use Otter Wax, Martexin Wax, or any other fabric wax
- Lay apron on a flat work surface (protect the surface if necessary)
- Apply the wax sparingly with a soft, lint-free cotton cloth or brush
- Spread the wax evenly for a uniform look
- Work it into the fabric in a circular motion
- Use a hairdryer to heat fabric and wax to facilitate a smooth and thorough application
- Do not coat the surface too thickly or it will not be able to absorb it all
- Seams and worn areas will require more wax
- Heat from a hair dryer or from the sun can facilitate the absorption into the canvas
- Wipe off excess wax and hang garment to dry in a warm, well-ventilated area
- The next day, wipe off any excess oil not absorbed
- Apply more wax to areas that still appear shiny or dry
