Cleaning, Re-Waxing & Full Restoration Service
This is what can be achieved with our unique cleaning process and will remove up to 99% of any bad smells associated with wax cotton garments, ‘Yes’ these are the same jackets.
Care labels like the ones above can be found in all waxed jackets. This is to make it seem like they cannot be cleaned. Under normal circumstances, this is actually true!
But Wax Jackets Cleaned have the answer!
IMPORTANT INFORMATION RELATING TO THE WAX FINISHES / DRESSINGS WE HAVE TO OFFER.
MAKE SURE TO READ THIS SECTION, AS IT IS VERY IMPORTANT!
BASIC WAX FINISH (Wax 1) This is a ‘BASIC’ Wax dressing which has little or no sticky / oily touch finish, this just depends on the character or make of Waxed Cotton, this will give a reasonable water resistant / repellent finish……… (No Extra charge for this finish).
Silk-Oil Wax Finish (Wax 2) This finish is the most popular and does have a little sticky / Oily touch, but this will settle down after a few wears / weeks. This finish is ideal for a garment which is used for more outdoor than indoor use, this finish gives a very good water resistant / repellent finish!! This finish wax dressing is used in the original manufacture of the waxed cotton fabric (supplied by Halley Stevenson’s of Dundee)…… (Extra charge of £5.00 + any % for size applies to this finish) “THIS IS THE DEFAULT WAX FINISH”
Heavy Wax Finish (Wax 4) This does exactly what it suggests!! – this is a HEAVY wax dressing which is made and developed for people who want to wear their garment for outdoor use only, it does have a far more sticky and oily finish to the other finishes available, this will give as close to water-proof as is possible (No guarantees apply), (Extra charge of £10.00 + any % for size applies to this finish)
Dry Wax Finish (Wax 5) Dry wax is a new innovation in the production of wax jackets – it’s dry to the touch, so it doesn’t have that slightly wet feel of more traditional wax jackets. Unlike traditional waxes, dry wax is not compromised by room temperature – ensuring it’s durable, water resistant, stain resistant properties. This wax dressing does and will crack-up and will leave a used / antique look, but its water-resistant properties are not compromised in any way! Even if your garment was not originally a ‘DRY WAXED’ finish, most can have this applied if required (T’s & C’s apply) The usual way to apply is via a ‘Wax Bar’ which is very time consuming and can only be done by the owner of the item with no 3rd Party companies offering this service!! Here at WJC have developed a system to apply this wax in a Hot Liquid format!! No other company can or will offer the wax or service…. (Extra charge of £10.00 + any % for size applies to this finish) PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS FINISH WILL ONLY BE APPLIED TO JACKETS THAT ORIGINALLY HAD A DRY WAX FINISH IN THE FIRST PLACE. IF YOUR JACKET IS NOT A DRY WAX FINISHED JACKET, WE WILL REVERT BACK TO OUR DEFAULT FINISH, THE SILK-OIL FINISH, AND YOU WILL BE CHARGED ACCORDINGLY (£5.00 INSTEAD OF £10.00 FOR THE FINISH)
No matter which wax dressing is applied!! No guarantees whatsoever can be given towards the water repellence properties of the fabric/garment. ALL fabric changes colour when a wax dressing is applies with the fabric significantly going darker in colour and appearance and will even look darker than when the item/garment was new! ALL wax dressings can and will have a small smell of ‘Paraffin’. All the wax finishes are applied by hand and are then placed in a special Hot Room for 48Hrs. so as for the dressing to soak evenly throughout the fabric, this also reduces massively the sticky surface feel!! which all other companies who offer a waxing service will get? Please note that we do not offer any recommendation on which wax to use!! we don’t mind offering a little advice, but no 2 wax jackets are the same and NO guarantees are given on the final finish on feel, look, smell (dressing) or stickiness!
DO YOU HAVE A JACKET WITH A LABEL THAT LOOKS LIKE THIS? WHICH STIPULATES A TRADITIONAL SILK-OIL FINISH. THIS WILL BE FOUND PRIMARILY ON BARBOUR WAX COTTON GARMENTS / JACKETS.
WE CAN OFFER THE SAME FINISH AS THIS WHEN WE TAKE THE JACKET IN! IF THIS IS THE FINISH YOU WOULD LIKE, CHOOSE OPTION 2!

We carry out a full and comprehensive repair, alteration and modification service to all Wax Cotton Garments.

To reduce your potential postal costs, make your parcel as small as possible. Some garments can and will change colour slightly and some dramatically. Wax dressing is a Neutral colour and have no dyes, special finishes on modern Wax Cotton Garments can never be replicated.
Wax Jackets are an outdoor item of clothing, after the Cleaning & Re-waxing it is advisable NOT to wear indoors and in Motor Vehicles as the wax dressing will transfer on to other fabrics and surfaces.
After the process, some will have a stickier finish than others (please see Info-Sheet for details) this will settle down after a short time of wearing. Your item will ‘NOT’ come back NEW it will be returned Cleaned and Professionally Re-Waxed by hand. Cleaned means we will get it as clean as possible, it is a gentle cleaning process so there are limitations, in 95% of cases we get them perfectly clean, some stains may still be visible!
The garment will be clean and more importantly fully wearable. We do not take any responsibility for items that go missing when in transit to and from our premises, this is the courier’s responsibility.
CHECK ALL POCKETS BEFORE SENDING
