Product Care & FAQs
Be sure you’re cleaning your leather bag with clean hands. Leather bags are susceptible to absorbing grease and oil.
It is recommended to do a quick cleaning every few days, briskly sweeping your leather product with a soft, dry, or slightly damp cloth. (Do not use too much water; leather takes time to dry.)
Once or twice a year, do a more thorough cleaning to remove buildup dirt. Wipe down your leather bag with Smith's Leather Balm. Apply by hand, the leather will absorb the balm immediately. Some leathers may darken slightly but will return to their natural shade within 24 hours.
Waxed Canvas, Twill & Linen
Do not wash, dry clean or iron your product!
To spot clean your bag use a damp cloth to gently remove any debris. If your waxed product collects lint simply use a lint roller and gently remove any lint.
To reduce the appearance of crinkles in the waxed product and restore color, heat up the product with a hair dryer for approximately 30 seconds. This will re-melt the wax for a smoother appearance and deepen the product coloring.
Bees Waxed Products
Even though Bees waxed products are water resistant, your Bees waxed product may still get water spots from the reaction between water and bees wax. If you do notice water spots simply apply gentle heat with a hair dryer to the area to reset the wax. This is also the the method used to reset the product and get it back to looking brand new.
Hybrid Waxed Canvas
Hybrid waxed bags and garments can be continually re-waxed to maintain performance, making them more sustainable than synthetic alternatives that end up in a landfill at the end of their useful life. There is also less impact on our natural environment when using waxed canvas products vs. PFC's (Perfluorochemicals) used in synthetic articles as a water repellant.
Spot clean and re-wax. Cannot be put in washing machine, ironed, or steamed.
Stone Washed Canvas
