- Leather Care
Cleaning and Care: Do NOT wash, dry or spot clean with any cleaning products as this will damage and remove the wax finish. Do not dry-clean. Brush off excessive dirt, and gently wipe with a lightly dampened cloth. Allow to air dry. Oil based stains are likely to remain after cleaning and will become a part of the bags developing patina adding character.
Heavily worn areas can be rewaxed with Martexin Original Wax refinishing compound, which is specifically developed for this waxed canvas. A good indicator of when it is time to rewax, is fabric that is significantly lighter than initial use or water failing to bead on the surface.
Before rewaxing, ensure that the bag surface has been cleaned and completely dried. Use a lint roller to remove any lint or debris from the surface.
Using a gloved hand, apply a small daub of wax to the canvas in the area to be re-wax and rub into the canvas in a circular motion ensuring the coat of wax is even.
Use a heat gun, or hair dryer, to heat up the wax allowing it to liquify and blend into the fibers. Use fingers to evenly spread the wax in a circular motion while moving the heat around at the same time to prevent burning. Let the freshly waxed bag dry overnight. If there are any areas of excessive wax, reheat until the wax liquifies and blot with a clean paper towel. Blend wax into the surface and allow to dry overnight..
