WAXED CANVAS FAQs:
1. HOW TO CLEAN DIRT AND GRIME OFF YOUR WAXED CANVAS
Waxed canvas is supposed to give that rugged look and it's unavoidable that your apron will encounter dirt. If you wish a cleaner look, just follow these few steps. Liquid castile soap is the best for this type of cleaning, but if that's not available, mild face or body soap can be an alternative cleaning agent. Avoid harsh detergent or anything that has bleach.
The best way to maintain your waxed apron is to avoid machine washing, hot water, and conventional soaps/detergents that will accelerate the breakdown of the infused wax.

Avoid storing your apron in a damp and humid environment to avoid mildew growth but if this already happened to your apron, just follow this video and your apron will be good as new. We used vinegar in this video but you can also use hydrogen peroxide. Dampen cloth with hydrogen peroxide and pat the cloth on affected areas. Air dry or blow dry. Repeat the process if necessary.

For oil stains, an absorbing agent such as talcum powder or cornstarch may be applied to the stain for a couple of hours, then use a soft brush to clear away any excess powder.

Ink stains need a few more supplies, but all can be found in most household cabinets. Mix toothpaste and baking soda. Apply to the canvas with a damp toothbrush and gently work into the material. Repeat a couple of times.
