The oilskin re-proofer is a necessity to keep your favourite waxed coat in tip-top condition. Driza-Bone's motto is
"things that are made properly will last & hard work brings many rewards”
The application of the oilskin dressing will extend and reproof the water-resistance qualities of your entire jacket.
How to apply the dressing
Make sure coat is clean of any dirt and completely dry before you start.
The Driza-Bone Re-proofer (tin) is an oil/wax compound that needs to be heated up by placing the tin in hot water (with the lid off). This will liquefy the dressing, which is essential for easy and effective application. DO NOT place tin in microwave.
Place garment on a flat surface and apply garment dressing using a soft bristled paintbrush or sponge. Pay particular attention to crucial areas such as shoulders, neck seams and places subject to friction (e.g., pockets and creases in sleeves and knees).
After re-proofing, hang garment out in the sun on a warm day, or use the heat of a blow-dryer on a low setting, spreading the heat evenly over the coat as this helps the oil penetrate the garment.
After drying, place garment on a strong hanger and leave to cool.
