It's a good question. Because there's a sure method to not wash the oil waxed canvas bags and rucksacks If you make this error... you'll be in trouble, the canvas bags you've made simply be... an empty canvas bags.
So, here are couple of important things to note:
-Dry and clean
- Machine dry
-Use hot or warm water.
- Use detergent
Utilizing any of these methods can reduce the wax coating which will weaken the finish and water resistance, leaving you with a plain canvas bag and the most messed-up mess.
TRY THIS INSTEAD:
- Gently scrub off dried dirt or mud using an easy bristled brush
-Try the water with a plain (cold) water before you use soap
- Use cold water as well as some gentle soap (not detergent) as needed
- Cleanse off any soap residue and let the canvas dry in the air.
Washing canvas bags that have been waxed in this manner will remove spots and dirt without breaking down the wax layer that is on the canvas. Don't clean your waxed canvas often. Canvas bags that have been waxed are more attractive the more you utilize them, and the scratches and marks that they leave throughout the process make them more interesting. Be careful with your washing, and take pleasure in the journey.
