Always hang your oilskin after use, and allow to dry naturally in a well ventilated area. Remember to keep the garment away from artificial heat or flame. Do not leave hanging in direct sunlight. Any excess dirt on your oilskin should be removed with a soft clothes brush, and sponged or hosed down with cold water.
Check your oilskin occasionally for dry patches, especially in areas that are subject to friction such as knees, sleeves, neck and shoulders. Dry patches indicate that these areas will require reproofing.
During long periods of non use, always roll your oilskin and store in a dry place, away from direct sunlight. Make sure your coat is dry before doing so.
DO NOT use hot water, soap, detergent or any other cleaning agent on your oilskin.
DO NOT wring, spin or tumble dry.
DO NOT iron or dry clean
DO NOT stitch anything to exterior of garment without resealing stitches.
Re-proofing a Kakadu garment
The first sign of leakage usually occurs in the crease area on the sleeve of the coat. We recommend a treatment of Kakadu's Spinifex MicroWax re-proofing creme
To re-oil your coat, please follow these steps:
Suede Leather Hats -
Provided you dry your hat slowly, rain drops will simply brush out.
Full Grain Leather Hats - Smooth leather finish
Stretching Hats - Leather/Fur Felts
