In this video, I take you along as I make a batch of DIY waxed waterproofing solution to treat some of my outdoor gear with. This is a super simple process, that is very effective in treating any cotton or leather goods that you may have. It also seems to be popular right now to have waxed cotton goods, so you might even use this to wax your stuff to stay trendy :-)

In this recipe, I used 8 ounces of beeswax (you can also use paraffin), 4 ounces of boiled linseed oil, and 4 ounces of turpentine.

If you do decide to make this waterproofing solution, I highly suggest you do it outdoors because you are working with some flammable ingredients.
