Unlike our Pyrosnuff and Canvak the wax (color) on this fabric won’t rub off as easily. Waxed canvas has been used for many years without washing. Darker colors tend not to soil or stain as easily as lighter colors. If soiling does occur, do not launder, or use detergent to wash this fabric. Wax canvas fabrics should be treated like leather – spot clean with a hose, soft scrub brush or damp cloth. For stubborn stains use saddle soap, or flake soap (not detergent) will do the trick. NEVER use detergent (liquid or powdered) or even dry clean.
