How do I care for my Barbour Wax Jacket?
A wax cotton garment cannot be washed in a conventional way as hot water and detergents will remove the wax and oils. Sponge down the outer fabric with cold water if soiled and brush off any grit etc. Hang the garment in a dry and airy place to dry off naturally. How often you need to reproof your Barbour depends on the frequency and type of usage. However, we recommend this is done every 9-12 months to maintain the wax cotton’s effectiveness.

How do I care for my Barbour Waterproof Breathable Jacket?
Generally, all waterproof breathable garments can be machine or hand washed at 30°C. However, you need to ensure that only non-biological washing powder is used and you should not use fabric softeners as these prevent the water repellent treatment on the jacket from working effectively. Barbour recommend the use of NikWax products which can be purchased online or in store for use with your waterproof breathable jacket.
