With regular use and exposure to the elements, most Wax Cotton garments will eventually require reproofing. Uneven, shiny, dry areas, and spots where moisture no longer "beads", is a good indicator to reproof these specific areas. It is not necessary to reproof the entire garment unless it has been washed. When your Wax Cotton garment has been fully cleaned according to our instructions, an all over reproofing is recommended.
The Australian Outback Collection is proud to offer an in-house reproofing service for all of our coats and jackets. Your beloved and authentic Australian Outback Collection coat will be reproofed and looking great, ready to face the elements once more when it is returned to you. With regular maintenance your Australian Outback Collection garment should provide years of wear.
If you would like us to reproof your Wax Cotton garment please note the following:
*** ALL GARMENTS SENT IN FOR REPROOFING MUST BE CLEAN AND FREE OF ANY DIRT. GARMENTS NOT CLEANED PRIOR TO BEING SENT IN WILL BE RETURNED AT THE OWNER’S EXPENSE. ***
How to care for your Wax Cotton garment
The proper care and treatment of your waxed cotton garment will ensure its longevity. When you are not wearing your garment, always be sure to hang it in a well-ventilated area. Dried mud, sand, grit and dirt should be removed as soon as possible, as it will have an abrasive effect on the waxed cotton. It is also important to reproof your garment as needed.
