"Martexin Original Wax is a highly specialized textile that precludes normal cleaning. Just as you wouldn't wash a leather product such as shoes, gloves, or jackets, you should not dry clean or use detergent on your Martexin Original Wax. Wax fabrics have been successfully used for many years without washing. A periodic cleaning with a hose, damp cloth or soft scrub brush for heavy dirt is all that is needed. Your shower works equally as well. Sometimes a mild bar or flake soap (not detergent) or even Saddle soap will remove stubborn stains.
Bare areas can be refinished with Martexin Original Wax refinishing compound which can help restore the wax finish. A little heat from a hair dryer will help the process.
To be completely satisfied with the performance of your fabrics, there are several important issues to remember: TRY water first with a slight brushing or scrubbing. USE a little bar soap or flaked soap or Saddle soap, only if necessary, on specific areas only. Sometimes a small amount of ammonia will help. NEVER use detergent, liquid or powdered. NEVER dry clean as the powerful environmentally damaging chlorinated solvents will remove the finish. SPARINGLY apply wax refinishing ointment and little heat from a hair dryer always helps. Use and enjoy your waxed cotton product. It is rugged and made for active outdoor use. It is weather-tough and made for your next adventure."

Shipping from United States
Shipment with occur 1-3 weeks after ordering as each bag is cut, sewn, and finished per order.
Domestic shipping will be USPS Priority Mail, international shipping will be through USPS priority mail or first class, whichever costs less. It is difficult to determine cost of shipping for multiple items, especially international since cost is based on total weight. Any excess paid for shipping will be reimbursed when bag(s) are shipped.
Some countries charge additional fees for customs, duty fees, VAT, etc. The buyer is responsible for any additional costs.
Due to customers reporting stolen shipments, items valued greater than $250 will require a signature upon delivery.
Unfortunately, packages sometimes get lost in the mail. Once there is a United States Postal Service (USPS) tracking number generated and has been accepted by Scandia Postal Service, Two Oaks Trading can no longer assume responsibility for the packages to be delivered; from then on forward it is in the hands of the USPS or whatever international carrier that may apply. Though this is rare, it does happen. Domestic orders generally have some insurance through the USPS; contact your local USPS branch to obtain information about redeeming this insurance.
