Filson Oil Finish Wax
For touching up hard wearing or flex areas on oil finish garments or for complete reproofing. Our special paraffin-based wax gives your Filson garment extreme durability and resistance to wind and water while remaining pliable for extended comfortable wear. Heavy-use areas can benefit from occasional touch-ups. Under extremely heavy use areas of the garment subject to abrasion and flexing can lose some of their finish and therefore some of their water repellency. By giving those areas a little extra protection from time to time with Filson's Original Oil Finish Wax you can maintain water repellency as good as the day you bought the garment. Re-proof as often as necessary.How to maintain maximum water repellency from your oil finish cotton clothing.

2. Brush all excess dirt from the area to be treated. Wipe clean with a soft cloth and cold water. WARNING: Use clean cold water ONLY. Do NOT use soap or detergents.
3. Apply wax generously with your fingers or a clean cloth. Use light short circular strokes to work thoroughly into the affected areas -- usually seams creases and high-flex areas. 4. Use a hair dryer or heat gun evenly over application or hang in direct sunlight for a real "factory" finish. Hang garment overnight in a warm place away from open flame.
