Care

These bags are water repellant - water won't mark or absorb into the bag.  And waxed canvas doesn't require “normal” cleaning.  Wax is embedded in the cotton fibres making the fabric durable and water resistant.  If it gets very hot, the wax from the bag can mark surfaces. 

When caring for waxed canvas: 

For light cleaning, anything that doesn't clean up with a damp cloth, try a bit of water and a soft bristle brush.

For tough stains use bar soap, flaked soap or saddle soap.  Do this only if necessary and on specific areas only.  Don't use detergent (liquid or powder) to clean this bag.  This bag should not be dry cleaned.  Dry cleaning will remove the wax.
