Knowing how difficult and harsh the weather can be for us motorcyclists, Merlin also chooses to provide extra support to the wax by specifying that a Reissa waterproof and breathable membrane sits behind the wax. This means that even over a long period when the wax begins to dry out the waterproofing performance of you jacket is not compromised- some riders actually prefer the aged dry look of the wax. The key to getting the most out of your wax cotton jacket is to show it a little care and attention, for which in return it will serve you well for many years.
Step 1: Lightly brush off any dirt or soil, and if necessary use a cold damp cloth to wipe down the jacket. Clean your jacket regularly to maintain its appearance but go easy as the wax will be removed. Dried mud, sand or grit are abrasive to the wax, especially along inner sleeve seams and this is the reason why we recommend brushing off regularly. Leaving the jacket to dry naturally for 24 hours in a well ventilated area.
Step 2: Re-waxing the jacket when the jacket loses its waxed appearance/finish. Purchase a waxed cotton dressing tin from a number of online retailers and heat the tin of reproofing wax so that it becomes pliable and easy to apply. You can place the tin into a pan of hot water and warm it gently. Evenly apply the wax with a lint-free cloth, paying attention to seams. Allow the wax to settle and dry slightly and remove any excess build up. Use a hair dryer to melt the wax into the jacket- allowing an even spread of wax. Allow the jacket to dry in a well ventilated area for 24 hours.
IMPORTANT: Do not machine wash or tumble dry. Do not iron. Do not wipe with hot water. Avoid soap and detergents. Keep you jacket on a hanger to maintain its shape and appearance in a dry place.
