TexWax is a strong, durable cotton based fabric that is treated with generations-old formulations of various grades and qualities of waxes. These waxes impart flexibility at cold temperatures, water repellenency, non-transferability and a high melt point.
TexWax is an authentic American heritage cloth brought forward for today's rugged, sustainable and fashion-focused styles.
The TexWax formulation consists of food and pharmaceutical grade waxes, and is completely non-hazardous and non-toxic.
Due to waxing, shades will vary greater than standard dyed cotton non wax fabric.
The unique character of TexWax is to have craze or crack marks when folded or handled. To remove craze marks from fabric, use a medium hot iron over brown paper or a hot air blower: https://youtu.be/JaKRl-SVIP8.
TexWax is an extremely durable fabric that requires minimal care. However, just as you should not wash fabric upholstery or a leather product such as shoes, gloves, or jackets, you should not dry clean or use detergent on your TexWax products. Wax fabrics have been successfully used for many years without washing.
A periodic cleaning with a hose, damp cloth or soft scrub brush for heavy dirt is all that is needed. Your shower works equally as well. Sometimes a mild bar or flake soap (not detergent) or even Saddle soap will remove stubborn stains.TexWax wax refinishing ointment left to absorb for a day or so (a hair dryer will speed the process) will restore the wax finish. Iron only on low heat with a thin cloth or craft paper barrier between the fabric and the iron in order to redistribute wax and relax the fabric.
Darker shades are more successful than lighter shades in not showing soiling. To be completely satisfied with the performance of your TexWax fabrics, there are several important issues to remember: TRY water first with a slight brushing or scrubbing. USE a little bar soap or flaked soap or Saddle soap, only if necessary, on specific areas only. Sometimes a small amount of ammonia will help. NEVER use detergent, liquid or powdered. NEVER dry clean as the powerful environmentally damaging chlorinated solvents will remove the finish. SPARINGLY apply TexWax wax refinishing ointment and little heat from a hair dryer always helps. Use and enjoy your waxed cotton product. It is rugged and made for active outdoor use. It is weather-tough and made for your next adventure.
