✓ Martexin Original Wax Care
Martexin Original Wax is a highly specialized textile that precludes normal cleaning. Just as you wouldn’t wash a leather product such as shoes, gloves, or jackets, you won’t be able to wash or dry clean your Martexin Original Wax. Wax fabrics have been successfully used for many years without washing. A periodic cleaning with a hose, damp cloth is all that is needed. Bare areas can be refinished with our Martexin Original Wax refinishing compound which can help restore the wax finish.
✓ Martexin Original Wax Cotton Canvas is a durable, natural, time tested, and water-repellent fabric. The American family-owned company has used the same process for over 170 years. As the fabric ages, it develops a well-worn and comfortable patina, unique for every bag. The waxed finish is environmentally friendly, food and pharmaceutical graded, completely non-hazardous.
