I bought my first wax jacket at the end of 2011 and have enjoyed wearing it. It's the barbour international that takes the furry polyester lining. As a side note I found the barbour branding a bit to chavvy so I cut the yellow label off the right chest pocket..
Advice at the point of purchase was that washing the jacket will ruin it and dry cleaning is forbidden as well. A soapy sponge is supposed to be the way to clean.
That got me thinking. Does anyone remember that UV light cleaner that appeared on dragon's den? It's designed to zap all the bacteria (and therefore smell) from shoes. I was thinking of putting my barbour in there.
Anyone tried this or any other method of cleaning?
