TexWaxtm is an extemely durable fabric that requires minimal care. However, just as

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
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.
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.

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.
