This has been one heck of a rainy winter! Touching up spots where lots of water has washed the finish off my aging Belstaff Trialmaster is easiest when done with a bar of Otter Wax.
The strap of my camera and overnight bags tend to wear the waterproofing off my jacket. At room temperatures, simply rubbing a bar of Otter Wax over the areas that need a bit of help takes care of it. The wax takes a few hours to cure, but you can wear it immediately.
Nikwax is super easy for a full coat refinish, but as my daughter has remarked, it doesn't look as nice as a new coat of real wax. 10-15 minutes with this bar, after the Nikwax has fully dried, will also fix that. Still far less work than using a creme wax.
I find that most years a single treatment will do, but this year I've put the jacket through a lot of travel, and a lot of rain.

I have spent a lot of time running a bar of wax over my Belstaff jacket. No longer, now I use spray on Nikwax. Every now and then my waxed cotton jacket needs a touch up. Nikwax is about 1000x easier to use than a solid or cream wax. You liberally spray this on, rub […]
Running a small business drops a lot on to the plate of just one person. And between juggling a dozen tasks that need to get handled daily, it’s no surprise that there are a dozen more equally vital tasks that can just as easily go overlooked. While posting to social channels and making web posts […]
The importance of reading is well documented. About half of America’s unemployed between 16 and 21 years old are functionally illiterate. And there’s an almost direct line between how much you read and your earning potential, with the richest Americans three times more likely to read than those with a household income below $30,000. However, […]
