Natural Fabric Weatherproofing is easily rubbed onto any synthetic or natural fiber cloth material for years of rainproof performance. For detailed instructions, check out this article about canvas wax. Unlike aerosols that contain harmful ingredients, fabric wax contains no harsh chemicals, instead, relying on nature’s finest materials for longer-lasting adhesion and abrasion resistance. Seriously, a three hundred percent increase in abrasion resistance as stated in Max Moon’s article. Additionally, fabric weatherproofer penetrates deep into fibers, saturating the material and preventing any foreign fluids or stains from getting through. Conversely, aerosol spray only coats the surface of your fabric. So, you will have to re-apply frequently and expose your lungs and skin to toxins.
