An Oxford Blue wax product is regarded as one of the finest outdoor garments available today. We urge you to take notice of these care instructions, to ensure that you get many, many years of wear out of your purchase.
Due to the nature of a waxed cotton textile, it is not possible to clean it in the normal way i.e. washing in detergent or dry cleaning.
If you follow these useful tips, you can ensure that you get the maximum life and performance from your jacket.
- If soiled - sponge down outer fabric with cold water. If needed, use a brush lightly to remove any dirt or grit.
- Hang coat in a dry, non humid, ventilated place to dry off naturally.
- Using Oxford Blue’s wax dressing, rewax the following areas; Shoulder and neck seams, Back and sleeve seams, plus areas of abrasion (sleeve creases) and where the fabric looks dry.
- Repeat the waxing treatment at least every twelve months.
It is very important that you NEVER do any of the following:
- Never use hot water.
- Never use detergent.
